It's $11 Sunday Storm, I don't know what should I do here I checked the flop to keep it small as only a would call me there maybe 88, 77 at best. I think I made mistake by not c-betting there.

Anyways what do I take of this over-bet turn shove, did he picked up spade flush draw on the turn, does he have a . Really don't know what to do, it's a 2X pot snap-shove by him on the turn.

I think you played this well.

I do think your squeeze was a bit too small, I'd rather see at least 1400, I'd probably pick 1600, but I doubt this is a huge error.

Flop I like the check, CBetting is an option as flush draws might well call, but keeping the pot under control in position is the line I prefer.

Turn is a definite fold for me. I have no idea if he's bluffing, protecting some silly two pair vs a flush draw, betting 99 like this because he doesn't want to see an A or K on the river. It's just simply not worth risking your tournament life at this stage to find out.
