      I find myself often in a spot like this with TT or JJ and am mostly unsure abaout what to do. This time i assumed he was squeezing and gave it a go. Help me out in these kind of situations.

      I play full ring, but depending on my opponent's PfR I can call or 4bet with TT and JJ. Most times I just call for set value.

      Calling for set value is not possible. It's too expensive, and if i don't hit my hand it's very hard to play postflop (maybe that is due to the aggresion in 6max). I think i can fold or raise.

      i agree with philip, you can't call for set value.

      You have to call 3$ and you'll hit a set about 1 every 7 times so you need to win 21$ every time you hit your set to make it break even. SB only has 23$ left so for it to be profitable you'd have to stack him every time which isn't possible.

      I just like to call mostly with TT and JJ, unless player would shove with worse hands (like A9 or 77).
      Playing postflop with these hands aren´t difficult ip.
