      Stats on UTG+2

      Preflop: Hero is BB with A Q
      UTG+1 folds, UTG+2 raises to $0.16, 4 folds, BTN calls $0.16, SB folds, Hero raises to $0.52, UTG+2 folds, BTN calls $0.36
      Is it ok to squezze here against UTG? I would like to isolate fish, but not sure if it's +EV because of PFA's tight range. I don't like calling as I end up multiway in bad position.

      Flop: ($1.22) J A 9 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.84, BTN calls $0.84
      I'm bet/folding big for value from weaker Ax, KQ, Jx.

      Turn: ($2.90) 9 (2 players)
      Hero bets $2.64 and is all-in, BTN calls $2.64
      Imo 9 is a blank, so easy shove.

      River: ($8.18) 3 (2 players, 1 is all-in)

      $8.18 pot ($0.40 rake)
      Final Board: J A 9 9 3
      Hero showed A Q and lost (-$4 net)
      BTN showed 8 9 and won $7.78 ($3.78 net)

      PF: Squeeze is good. I'm guessing UTG+2's open range is between 10-13% here, so I think it's wide enough to squeeze, not exactly for value against him, but more for the Preflop fold equity. Also, we can get value from the fish.

      Flop: I think I'm fine with bet/folding. I think he is passive so he rarely raises with worse.

      Turn: I think shoving is fine. Of course he has some 9X, but vs his entire range, I think he has way more worse AX hands in his range, like all suited aces, maybe ATo/A8o etc.
