      MP: $9.05
      CO: $12.80
      BTN: $2.70
      Hero (SB): $9.90
      BB: $2.05
      UTG: $4.85
      UTG+1: $2

      UTG+1 posts $0.05
      UTG+1 posts $0.10
      Pre-Flop: Q:diamond: T:diamond: dealt to Hero (SB)
      UTG calls $0.10, UTG+1 checks, MP folds, CO calls $0.10, BTN folds, Hero calls $0.05, BB checks

      Flop: ($0.50) J:heart: 2:diamond: 7:diamond: (5 Players)
      Hero checks, BB checks, UTG checks, UTG+1 bets $0.50, CO calls $0.50, 3 folds

      Turn: ($1.50) 3:diamond: (2 Players)
      UTG+1 bets $0.30, CO calls $0.30

      River: ($2.10) 5:heart: (2 Players)
      UTG+1 bets $0.20, CO calls $0.20

      I think playing flush draws is my biggest weakness. Should I make a big raise here, knowing the shortstack is probably calling?

      I think you can afford to smooth-call the flop. With CO calling, you're getting 3-1 pot odds with a flush draw and an overcard.

      You can probably put villain on a medium pp, CO on a pair or a backdoor draw, so IMO calling there is fine.

      Just my opinion ;)

      You can easily call here and get the money on the turn :>

      Since you don´t have the nut flush draw and there are 2 players to act behind you, I like fold.
      It´s not so good to hit your flush and then get stacked by higher flush.
      And most likely you don´t hit your flush on the turn, pot gets bigger and then it is more difficult to throw away your hand.
