      I think squeezing here w/ jacks is wrong. I will go for a call and move on from there.

      As played imo you should try and check it down, see a free showdown, make a note about his cards and be happy to take it down. You just make lower PP to flop, i think queens would 3bet preflop, so basically your turning your hand into a bluff. You just get called by better hands ( which we don't wanna see ) and make weaker hands fold ( which we don't wanna see ), so imo it's a lose-lose situation.

      Hope it helps and it's ok :)

      Sounds fine.

      Preflop MP and BU will very rarely continue against your squeeze and if they do it'll be because MP flatted QQ+ to begin with for some reason. If UTG 4-bets you you're usually up against AK at the very least, most likely QQ+ that crushes you. I don't hate the squeeze if you've some read that MP or BU or both are fishy enough to call/call there with garbage and stack off with anything postflop, but if they're regular it just won't happen.

      Postflop it turns out BU did call/call for some reason, and the flop is obviously horrible. When he checks back the flop I don't think you can take out every Ax hand from his range yet, certainly he can have stuff like KQ that won't fold to a single turn bet if he was stubborn enough to not even fold to the squeeze. QQ is pretty unlikely for him to not squeeze himself preflop and just call a squeeze. I just think you're not bluffing him off anything we don't beat and he has given any indication that he's interested in betting himself, chances are we see a showdown and win against 88-TT by checking it down.


      Hope it helps.
