      PartyGaming - $0.50 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 6 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      SB: $59.35
      BB: $50.00
      UTG: $47.48
      MP: $50.75
      Hero (CO): $53.53
      BTN: $20.66

      SB posts SB $0.25, BB posts BB $0.50

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.75) Hero has 9:club: 9:diamond:

      UTG raises to $1.50, fold, Hero calls $1.50, fold, fold, BB raises to $6.00, UTG calls $4.50, Hero calls $4.50

      Flop: ($18.25, 3 players) J:club: J:heart: 5:spade:
      BB bets $7.00, fold, fold

      BB wins $17.34

      UTG 61/30 RFI UTG 18%, doesnt fold to 3bets.
      BB 20/17 Squeeze 8%, cbet 3b pot 65%

      I guess I could 3bet pre for thin value. Since Im IP I can more likely get to showdown if board is not good.

      When squeezed I dont think BB is ever bluffing, maybe using slighly wider value range. When fish calls as expected I think I can overcall sometimes flop a set, sometimes take the pot down when BB gives up.

      This flop is very dry, should I call and see how BB proceeds on turn. Since he knows UTG is a fish, I think hes not semi-bluffing KQ,AQ,AK as its not likely fish is gonna fold and against his value range im behind so I just fold.

      I like the idea of 3betting UTG sometimes in this case but you need to get called often by worse or get 4bet wide enough that you can 5bet shove this hand. I think BB can be reasonably wide here, doesn't have to be just bluffs/value, he will just have good hands that have equity postflop. I think flop is a fold when he cbets 3way. He definitely has some Jx in his range, your hand lacks playability. If you had a read and knew when you can turn your hand into a bluff I would ofc consider floating and winning the pot very often either at showdown or by bluffing since a lot of his range is QQ+.
