      3-bet squeezing for value, of course. After call, fish still got pretty wide range. MP is calling with PP`s, maybe some suited broad-ways.

      I do have 2 overs, GS, backdoor FD but I`m not really sure if I can fold out UTG PP`s even on the T+ turn. Also, being 3-way does not help.
      If any of them bets, I can fold. They probably would play fit/fold in this spot.

      I can get value out of UTG. As passive he is, he could definitely just check 66-TT on the flop. Also, he might even call with GS.

      Betting for value again, 1/2 pot bet targets his calling range. I don`t think I can bet more.

      I don't mind squeezing here. We want to isolate ourselves against the fish and play heads up postflop.

      I like checking the flop. I don't think we will have enough FE to justify a call here so checking with the intention to check/fold is good.

      I prefer betting bigger on the turn - like $0.75.

      As played, I'd bet more on the river as well. I don't think that he's calling PPs or 5x here, but we want to juice all his Jx hands. I'd bet around $1.6-$1.7 here.
