      iPoker - $0.50 NL - Holdem - 6 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

      BB: $52.68
      UTG: $25.75 VP:18 (EP VP:16)/PR:13 (EP PR:16)/AFq:45/Fold 3B:84%(EP:89%) over 3612 hands
      MP: $54.14
      CO: $48.50 VP:31/PR:10/AFq:52/Fold 3B:82%(LP:56%) over 1500 hands
      Hero (BTN): $78.76
      SB: $9.05

      SB posts SB $0.25, BB posts BB $0.50

      Pre Flop: ($0.75) Hero has J:heart: J:club:

      UTG raises to $1.75, fold, CO calls $1.75, Hero raises to $6.00, fold, fold, fold, CO calls $4.25

      Flop: ($14.50, 2 players) 7:heart: A:diamond: 5:heart:
      CO checks, Hero checks

      Turn: ($14.50, 2 players) J:spade:
      CO checks, Hero bets $12.00, fold

      I am not sure about the PreFlop squeeze.
      UTG is 18/13, should I just call and play for set value?
      Should I CBet on this A high board (can hit my AK very well I guess)

      In this situation a squeeze is very good if CO's fold to 3-bet is really low. Like 35%-. In that scenario, you will frequently get rid of the UTG reg with your squeeze and play your cute little JJ VS a trashy CO in position.

      Also, why are you not c-betting the perfect c-betting flop?

      Standard turn.

      I would usually CBet a Ace high board. But I thought that CO could have Ax and decided to play a small pot since he would probably not give it up.

      And you are right he could have Ax. He could also have 88-QQ, KQ/KJ/QJ/QT/JT of hearts, maaaybe 7x. These are the reasons for your c-bet =) . I would also second barrel a non heart turn, and re-evaluate the river.

      Updated the stats.
      With UTG having a high Fold to 3B and CO a relatively low one squeeze is good then so that I get rid of UTG and I play CO IP as you said.

      What would you do if UTG 4bets? Fold? Then you turn your hand in to a bluff.

      I don't think that if I 3B and Fold to a 4 B I turn my hand into a bluff.
      He can very well call with lower pp,AJ,AQ against which I'm ahead.

      I´d also 3-bet pf JJ and would shove over his 4-bet, since he can do that sometimes as bluff and also I think his range is definitely AK, sometimes aslo AQ, TT
      Flop check behind is fine. You can´t really make him anything better to fold, if he called pf QQ/KK I thin he would also c/c once with these hands and he can sometimes c/r bluff on that board and also c/r big with draws.
      Turn bet is fine. Mostly it is going to be c/f, but you have to bet to build bigger pot
