      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows a pair of jacks (Jc 8c)

      CO shows two-pair, kings and queens (Kd Qh)

      UTG wins with a straight, king high (Qd Tc)

      I think I played this hand poorly from the turn and on the river I talked my self in to calling because UTG is so bad and i thought he would play like this with a worse hand.

      Hello BigAl123456,

      Flop: Depends, what's your plan with donking. If you planning to go broke here then sure why not. But I guess I'd just Check/Call to avoid the raise and ugly spot.

      As played
      Turn: I'd just fold it here, we don't get that good odds and we will never know if your flush will be even good here. Maybe against set and few outs are dead already.

      As played if turn was Called
      River: Don't really see what we can beat here. Easy fold.

      Best regards.
