      Hey helliaspapas,

      I think your preflop squeeze is overly ambitious. As a general rule you do not want to 3bet JJ vs an early position open. When UTG opens and MP 3bets and BU cold-calls it is unlikely a re-raise will profitable especially OOP.

      As played you do not want to bet overly large on T33 board even with flush-draw. Your flop bet sizing looks ok to me.

      Turn should be a check-fold imo. Check jamming is the worst option - check-calling is superior to check-jamming here.
