      SB: req, squeze 6%
      BB: 35/1

      Not sure if 3bet is the best. Maybe this is strong enough to call preflop and keep the fish, and maybe even BB fish enters the pot. SB will not squeze too often.
      I checked equity vs 27% PFR and it is 43% so bit lack of eq. But maybe he is isolating more when fish limps. And also he should be less likely to cbet bluff in multiway, so I have postition and can take down pots when they check.

      When he 4bets I am not putting on a bluff him after fish cold calls. But he is giving such great odds. So I assume fish will call almost 100% of the time if I call getting even better odds. So I did calculatioon - I need to call 2$ assuming fish calls as well - so the total pot will be 14$.

      2/14 - I need 14% eq to be breakeven. If not counting fish vs AA I do have 15%. VS QQ+, AK its even better.

      If counting fish, my eq drops but then I have some implied odds and position.

      JQ against 27% is not good enough to call but can be 3bet as a bluff since he folds to 3bet often.

      You do have the odds to call pre flop to hit trips or 2p or better.

      Flop ill check because flop hits 4bet range

      Turn if everybody checks again means they are weak and ill go for value. However someone potted and there is a call so you are often behind and can fold.

      I agree you played it fine.
      I also think that QJo is a bit to weak to call here but QJs could go both ways as its playability improves with the FD posibility. So if you 3betbluff the best hands you cant call QJo is a good hand to do so.
