      BB: 69.8 BB (VPIP: 22.17, PFR: 11.81, 3Bet Preflop: 4.19, Hands: 1,514)
      UTG: 100 BB (VPIP: 21.60, PFR: 18.73, 3Bet Preflop: 7.79, Hands: 2,260)

      CO: 102.14 BB (VPIP: 29.41, PFR: 26.61, 3Bet Preflop: 14.48, Hands: 374)
      Hero (BTN): 161.66 BB
      SB: 47.68 BB (VPIP: 61.11, PFR: 0.00, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 18)

      SB posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has J:club: A:diamond:

      UTG raises to 3.5 BB, fold, CO calls 3.5 BB, Hero raises to 13 BB, fold, fold, fold, CO calls 9.5 BB

      Flop: (31 BB, 2 players) Q:heart: J:spade: J:diamond:
      CO checks, Hero bets 15.5 BB, CO calls 15.5 BB

      Turn: (62 BB, 2 players) J:heart:
      CO checks, Hero checks

      River: (62 BB, 2 players) 9:heart:
      CO checks, Hero bets 133.16 BB, CO calls 73.64 BB

      CO shows T:club: T:diamond: (Full House, Jacks full of Tens) (Pre 57%, Flop 11%, Turn 0%)
      Hero shows J:club: A:diamond: (Four of a Kind, Jacks) (Pre 43%, Flop 89%, Turn 100%)
      Hero wins 203.28 BB

      I am not sure if this hand is ok to sqeee vs utg and guy who doesnt like folding and giving up?

      UTG opens 15%, and folds to sqeeze 90%. The other guy folds 50%. He calls cbet on flop 71%.

      Is it ok on turn to check and underrepresent hand, then overbet to look as bluff?

      He might also try to steal the pot with air (since he floats a lot)

      Hey,

      I think preflop is fine to squeeze and isolate CO. You get a good price and your hand is for value vs CO.

      @Question: I think checking turn is fine. What I would suggest is just bet like 4bb more on the flop and you no longer have an overbet on the river and you gvie him great odds. I agree with the check, makes it possible for him to also turn hands into a bluff like you said. Another option for you would be to 3 barrel small sizings which some people view as weak.

      Do you think that vs a guy as him, overbet or close to pot size makes a huge difference? I wanted to bet smaller on flop to make him continue, and if he sees my line as bluff, I think he calls all bets from 1/2 to overbet

      We have no idea of what he views weak or strong when it comes to sizing. If you see people being call happy vs overbets more than vs <pot bets, then value bet the bigger sizing ofc. I was only suggesting how to take out the overbetting for the river when you check the turn. You asked if to overbet to look like a bluff but there's no universal answer to that, it will always depend but you have an option to not overbet when you consider that to be higher EV. :)
