      I call an unknowns raise with JJ and get squeezed by a fairly loose aggressive player in the BTN. The unknown folds and I am not sure what I should do in this spot - I think folding is way too weak against this guy but I don't know if a re-raise or a call is better. I also think my turn bet is too small considering the possible draws. 

      What line would you take here? Any input would be appreciated.

      Yeah 4b is better in this spot pf. His sqz range basicaly consists broadway, mid pp and sometimes even suited aces. You could call for set value if you were both deep, and this way you are oop hoping that Q, K and A don`t fall on flop.

      As played I think it is ok(turn bet a bit bigger yeah), although his line looks really really strong. But we can`t really say he wouldn`t play AK or other twopair hands this way, so I am never folding my set there.

      I think fold is a little weak pf
      So you can call or 4-bet to 8$ and call shove
      Once you call pf you´re likely not getting away never that board so bet turn and river shove is fine. he can easily call you down with AK/AQ/AJ
