      I thought I could squeeze( it was border line)

      On flop, there is enough Qx so checked.
      On turn, BB's range had some 99,TT so I called.

      Preflop: I agree it's close, if CO backraises on us we are screwed IMO, he seems tight and I think he is capable of trapping monsters preflop. I wonder if we are ahead of MP's 4bet range - What's your image like?

      Probably still fine to squeeze though but if you are afraid of squeezing and jamming vs a 4bet then a flat may be the better option.

      Flop: Ok I agree with checking back here. I think BB could have stuff like AQ or QQ+ sometimes.

      Turn: I'm calling once as we beat some AK and lower pairs and maybe some AJs type of hand, BB is loose.

      River: The flush got there so I suppose that's bad if villain has something like A:hK. Unless you have some sort of read that villain is likely to be wide here, I would usually fold. JJ is probably at the bottom of our bluff catching range - We would not have squeezed TT preflop, we would have given up with AK on the Turn, and I think we still can have some QX hands to bluff catch on the River with like KQ and QJ which we could have checked back on the Flop.
