      I have always squeezed with much better hands than this.
      AJ+, JJ+

      IPoker, $0.02/$0.05 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players

      stats are v/p/3/af H

      BB: $8.42 (168.4 bb)
      UTG: $5.39 (107.8 bb) 24/20/11.3/2.5 162
      MP: $5.12 (102.4 bb)
      CO: $5.27 (105.4 bb) -- only 25 H
      BTN: $4.03 (80.6 bb)
      Hero (SB): $11.56 (231.2 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with T K
      UTG raises to $0.15, MP folds, CO calls $0.15, BTN folds, Hero raises to $0.70, 3 folds

      I think that my stack size helped here.
      I know from experience that UTG can fold, too, so that helped.

      KT is acceptable. By default I'm usually squeezing AJ+/KQ/JJ+. Vs more aggro players I would also squeeze/shove TT, and vs wider ranges I'll often add KJ and AT. Weaker broadways like KT are kind of situational and depends on the villains' tendencies.
