      Villains-unknown.Should I squeeze in this spot?Is shoving turn a mistake and if it is how should I play it then and can I expect him ever to fold a Q in this case?

      - seems fine spot to squeeze, although 98s also plays fine in multiway so you can just call on the SB

      Is shoving turn a mistake and if it is how should I play it then and can I expect him ever to fold a Q in this case?
      - I don´t like shove, since he isn´t really going to fold Qx, if he has smt like 9T he would also call his pair+straigthdraw, so you only forcing out some better 9x hands, like A9
      And I think he would not call your turn shove with 66/88
      So my play would be check and either try to check it down or if he shoves then likely fold. J completed a lot of gutshots and draws, so I don´t think you´re ahead that often if he shoves turn. If he bets smt like 5$ I´d call turn, since he can bet worse hands for value and take his free showdown
