      Preflop: In CO vs a late position squeeze I think JJ should be a 4bet vs an aggro player by default.

      Postflop: The stacks are kind of awkward. I am not liking my position on the Turn, firstly that seems to be a committing bet (on the river his bet is <half pot), secondly the pairing of the 9 makes this a really terrible spot to bluff the Turn so I think you can consider folding the Turn right away.

      Folding seems kind of bad though on a board where we have the best hand a decent amount and besides if we were willing to stack off JJ preflop here we probably shouldn't fold on a low board

      So I have mixed feelings about the Turn, and since it's kind of a committing bet if we call Turn we cannot fold River. I think we might as well just jam the Turn with so little left behind, instead of giving stuff like AK the opportunity to catch up.

      In short, here are my preferences
      4bet Preflop > Jam Turn > Fold Turn ~ Call Turn Call River > Call Turn Fold River
