      BB: $29.06
      UTG: $44.97
      Hero (CO): $22.04
      BTN: $7.60
      SB: $20.00

      Pre Flop: ($0.30) Hero is CO with T :spade: T :heart:
      UTG raises to $0.52, Hero calls $0.52, BTN calls $0.52, 1 fold, BB raises to $2.70, 1 fold, Hero calls $2.18, 1 fold

      Flop: ($6.54) 5 :spade: 9 :spade: 6 :diamond: (2 players)
      BB bets $4.90, Hero raises to $19.34, BB folds

      Villains-almost unknown but seem on the aggressive side for the the few hands that I have on them. On BB I have 31 hands from the current session during which his 3bet was 25(12), so he has 3bet 40% of the hands this far.
      Now that I look at the hand, I think that back-raising and getting it in vs him makes more sense than calling.
      As played, his cbet is pretty big so I dont see too much FE, not sure if he can call with worse too but I cant call because too many turn cards suck and folding seems too weak, so I am left with jamming.
      What are your thoughts?

      I think pf call is a little better than shoving against squeeze. He would not fold there JJ-AA and likely only hand you´re flipping is AK. Also if he has or example T9s and you both hit your T or he hits 9 then he would not get away on 9xx boards.

      Since you have overpair on the flop I would also raise there, but I would make it 10$ to give him option shoving his AK/88 type hands that he would likely fold to shove

      best regards,
