      Hand converter is a bit funny, but hope it's ok.

      SB ($9.94) (Hero)
      BB ($11.32)
      UTG ($14.77)
      UTG+1 ($21.21)
      UTG+2 ($16.09)
      MP1 ($7.94)
      MP2 ($9.60)
      MP3 ($2.24)
      CO ($11.23)
      Button ($9.94)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with 9:spade: , 9:club:
      UTG calls $0.10, 3 folds, MP2 raises to $0.40, 1 folds, CO calls $0.40, 1 folds, Hero calls $0.35, BB calls $0.30, UTG calls $0.30,

      Flop: J:heart: , 9:diamond: , T:diamond: ( $2 )
      Hero bets $1.60, BB calls $1.60, 1 folds, MP2 calls $1.60, 1 folds,

      Turn: 4:diamond: ( $6.8 )
      Hero checks, BB checks, MP2 checks,

      River: K:heart: ( $6.8 )
      Hero checks, BB bets $1.55, MP2 raises All-In $7.60, Hero folds

      I thought it best to lead out on the flop in this spot, just wondered what would be the consensus opinion.

      WP IMO.

      I also believe the best line here is lead out on the flop. You have a very strong hand, in a draw heavy board against multiple opponents.
      You have to bet out for value and protection, and there's absolutely no need for pot control since your hand is very strong.

      I´d probably shove turn
      I think that BB probably has here pair or straight draw and MP2 overpair or tp type hand. You should be ahead most of their range here and you have good fold equity.
      I´m probably not pushing for protecting, but for value and since pot is already quite big I´m not sure that c/f turn is good here.
      I like your river fold.

      I was pushing the turn if it was a blank after 2 callers, but the flush draw completed, so I slowed down.

      You don't think anyone has pair+flushdraw type hand here? Or just not often enough to be a serious consideration?

      IMO MP2 could easily have straight if he was raising preflop with cards like AQ/KQ/QQ then K on river completed OESD

      I agree that on the river you´re beaten but you´re probably still ahead on the turn.
