      You can cbet the flop here because you have gutshot+ backdoor fludh draw, but checking back is also ok since you have position. You shouldnt base your decision to cbet or not to cbet on whether cold callers are in the blinds or not.

      Turn play is fine, but you could also raise here sometimes. River is very interesting, I would still raise here because he can be overbetting Jx and smaller flushes here and will probably call your raise with those hands.

      Hello BGawli,

      Flop: With the position and everyone Checking into you, plus of course having even GS+backdoors and obviously fold equity I'd still threw a CB. Also for that given part that you will avoid such a spot on turn that you face a and then might even not get correct implied odds.

      As played
      Turn: For the given odds seems to be fine.
      River: Kind of close, but while he has so wide range sometimes we might even consider for shippament here. For the reason:

      Board: A:spade: 2:heart: J:diamond:  6:heart:  J:heart:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      UTG    33.33%  33.33%   0.00% { 66, AJs, KJs, QJs, JTs, Th9h, 8h7h, Ah5h, Ah4h, AJo, KJo, QJo, JTo }
      UTG+1  66.67%  66.67%   0.00% { KhQh }

      As you see he may easily have even a lot of worse Jx hands here which most likely will Call you and maybe even wider range with just weaker flushes. But of course it ain't huge problem if you even skip the value in those spots. You don't have to always go for maximum. He still has been winning most of the showdowns and about that I'd be scared. :D

      Best Regards.
