Preflop and flop is fine.

Why did you overbet the turn? Did you have some sort of read that this guy is a calling station and will call this size of a bet with draws or 9x?

FWIW villain isn't really shoving 7x pot, your stack is the effective stack so it's "only" 3x pot.

Without any reads on his postflop play, I would just fold to this shove. He could easily have A4 or a set here and he probably thinks that your betting line looks very strong and you aren't too likely to fold so he's trying to extract value right now.

You're only getting 1.36:1 on a call, in other words you need to win 42.3% of the time to break even, which I don't think is going to be the case in this spot.

Actually, reviewing my session this hand came up as one of the few losing hands (yeeeh ) but I was supriced to see I had overbet the pot.
I think I did it because of the reasons you mention: to look strong and to make it look like I was serious about this hand and wasn't going anywhere.

Or it was just a misclick

Thanks again for the analyse. I did fold
