      I saw this hand as a good spot to squeeze, since the open raiser had a wide range (his UTG open raise was also v. high) and the cold caller seemed weak with that call.

      So I did it, but the initial raiser called. Then how to play postflop with my TP+OESD w/out kicker??

      preflop it's a fold with 96o. (Playability isn't that good.)
      I prefer to squeeze with f.e. 87s, 98s.

      The problem is, that loose villain most likely calls and you play oop a big pot with a very marginal hand.
      I'd likely invest your 9$ on flop by contibetting and keeping the initiative.
      If getting called just give up against that villain.

      Let's see what the judges think.

      Best regards,

      96o is a little loose
      I would bet/shove this board, since it is very drawy and he can easily raise there with draws and even if he called pf with JJ+ you have decent equity against his range
      If you check flop, then same goes turn play
      You´re still ahead and should maybe also protect your hand
      Imo river is call. You´re playing your hand like Ak and he can easily turn his draws into bluffs and I´d expect him to bet less with overpair to get another call for A high
