      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has 5:spade: 4:spade:

      UTG calls 1 BB, Hero raises to 2 BB, fold, fold, fold, BB raises to 7 BB, UTG calls 6 BB, Hero calls 5 BB

      Flop: (21.5 BB, 3 players) T:spade: 6:spade: Q:club:
      BB bets 16.1 BB, UTG calls 16.1 BB, Hero calls 16.1 BB

      Turn: (69.8 BB, 3 players) Q:heart:
      BB checks, UTG bets 1 BB, Hero calls 1 BB, BB calls 1 BB

      River: (72.8 BB, 3 players) J:spade:
      BB checks, UTG bets 1 BB, Hero raises to 56.8 BB, BB calls 56.8 BB, UTG calls 55.8 BB

      BB shows A:diamond: K:club: (Straight, Ace High) (Pre 42%, Flop 18%, Turn 21%)
      UTG shows 6:diamond: J:diamond: (Two Pair, Queens and Jacks) (Pre 27%, Flop 40%, Turn 60%)
      Hero shows 5:spade: 4:spade: (Flush, Jack High) (Pre 31%, Flop 42%, Turn 19%)
      Hero wins 227 BB

      UTG hands 53, VP 40, PFR 6

      BB hands 340, VP 20, PFR 16 3b 8, sqeeze 1/20 (5%)

      Preflop I missclicked, wanted 5BB raise to iso fish. Is call ok against sqeeze because fish called?

      Is river large bet ok? I planned to fold on normal bet on turn because of paired board.
      I was thinking to go all in, because fish calls surely with Qx, and BB calls with AK (straight) or AA, KK maybe. But I just bet normal to get bet from both players more often and not only from full hause, because BB could have JJ as played.

      Pre i would just fold, not sure how fishes are where you play but i doubt most are fit or fold, and 54 is very weak. The worst sc i would personally isolate him here is t9s.

      Flop and turn standard.

      River is more difficult than it looks if they have nothing as they seem to have, they couldn't pay so much, so i would size it around half pot and unless their aggression is high i would fold to a push. Better flushes and fulls are rampart, qx seems to be scared so i wouldn't expect check push from that. Straights are rather negligible.

      PF is close, I think a defend is fine. We are getting really great pot odds and we can expect BB to play very honestly with the fish still in the hand. We are also IP so we can valuebet or bluff effectively so I kind of like the call.

      I would fold turn vs a 1/3 pot size bet esp when the board paired. But when he bets only 1BB calling here is fine.

      I think your river raise size is also fine. I don't necessarily think UTG has a Queen all the time, esp when there are 2 queens already out. His bet size also indicates something that is weaker than QX. So raising to a super large size may scare him away. I like your play.

      Nice hand.
