This is how you might play the hand if you didn't have the two hearts. With the hearts you are suffering from negative blocker effects however. River bluff could end up being slightly losing.

With the hearts I think it's pretty decent hand to put in to flop checking range. If villain checks back we can double-barrel bluff turn and river rather than being forced to triple holding something with bad blockers.

 Probably +EV on the turn, although clearly not the best situation. Definitely behind villain's calling range here if he does call, but in theory that's not always a problem, contrary to popular belief.

Having said that I'd probably just tend towards depolarizing a lot more in the BB while playing the absolute lowest limits on line. Just overcall the 56s and squeeze the AJ/KQ etc.

Might be able to find a fold on the river based on the fact that villain is overbetting. It's usually going to be full houses a lot.

Not the world's worst call though, he could be overvalueing worse Kx with some frequency, it's just that it's rare he'd overbet with KQ.

I don't have a big problem with how this hand is played. I'd actually check the flop in favour of firing 78 combos. 34 I'd probs use as check/call flop, probe river, combo.

Btw, while the hand might function ok as part of a polarized range, I actually recommend to 3bet depolarized from the BB when playing against unknowns or fish. This is a good hand to 3bet vs a reg, so it depends on villain.

Raising is fine. It's not like it's the only option though, calling is also fine given that we have the second nut flush-draw.

Turn barrel is standard. Folding vs jam is fine. Mostly unlucky I'd guess.

Villain usually has 2pair or set on the flop. QQ/JJ presumably unlikely given that he didn't squeeze which leaves 66. Maybe Q6s, J6s if he overcalls with them preflop.

He is repping super narrow on the river therefore, we are talking 5 combos, but it seems unlikely he'd do this with QJ or a worse flush. I think the fold is fine, probably even the best play. I wouldn't have been horrified if you'd called though.

Not the best board texture, which is going to make the EV marginal. Blank 3 is very good though, especially when villain doesn't raise the flop.

It might not be amazingly profitable due to the texture, but it's somewhat unlikely this can ever be losing vs a recreational opponent.

Seems fine, you only just get the implieds if you make villain's stack 100% of the time on the turn, and this is even ignoring that the ten of hearts is tainted.
VIP HH Analysis / Overbet Jammed turn with 2pair

I found this hand pretty interesting.  I Squeezed as a bluff as per the ranges, CO was unknown and BU seemed tight, so I felt like I would get a decent amount of folds.

OTF my plan was to cbet for protection then give up.  I didn't feel that great about it since his calling range is pretty decent here.

OTT we turn 2pair and out of all the options I couldn't see a better one than jamming.  We have a vulnerable hand, that has some crappy cards.  We could get owned by 78, or hearts here.  I think sets would raise this flop, but I think we are shallow enough he is going to call with his hands like AQ KQ, QJs, QTs and there  are so many cards that put a four to a straight, and it would be so tough to play OTR I thought it would be best to just jam it in.  I also think we can get value from 1 card A heart draws.
