Bumping this to see if anyone with more experience has a specific answer for you.
I don't see anything wrong with doing a morning evening split with your lifts. If fact, it might be beneficial. Even with deadlifting as the second session is a lot lower intensity.
I'd do the main lift in the morning, then the 5x 10 sets and anything else in the evening. At least I'd start that way and see what happened. If it wasn't working, I'd simply change it to something else. Never hurts to experiment. You have to find what is optimal for you which could easily be different than what other people are doing.
Just my .02.

I did this for about 3-4 months, maybe more I can't quite recall, last year. I only stopped cos of time restraints.
Day 1: Bench
That was in the evenings and in the mornings I overhead pressed and did the quick lifts.
I think it's the type of thing you need to work into and have the right mentality for. You don't work to the bone in every session, it's a lot of form practice, drilling the lifts over and over. If you destroy yourself or even push too far one session you'll be wrecked and unable to complete the week.
I also deloaded a lot, so you could do. But I would seriously ask yourself why you're doing it and if your reasons are good enough.
