      Everest, $0.03/$0.05 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 10 Players

      SB: $2.42 (48.4 bb)
      BB: $2.58 (51.6 bb)
      UTG: $6 (120 bb)
      UTG+1: $7.60 (152 bb) 10/0/0.1/0.0/73/71
      UTG+2: $2.21 (44.2 bb)
      MP1: $1.65 (33 bb) 23/16/1.3/9.8/46/118
      MP2: $1.50 (30 bb)
      Hero (MP3): $5.38 (107.6 bb)
      CO: $1.75 (35 bb) 32/5/6.0/0.0/29
      BTN: $11.40 (228 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with J J
      CO posts BB OOP, UTG folds, UTG+1 calls $0.05, UTG+2 folds, MP1 raises to $0.28, MP2 folds, Hero calls $0.28, CO calls $0.23, 3 folds, UTG+1 calls $0.23

      Flop: ($1.20) J Q 3 (4 players)
      UTG+1 checks, MP1 bets $0.38, Hero calls $0.38, CO raises to $1.47 and is all-in, UTG+1 calls $1.47, MP1 calls $0.99 and is all-in, Hero raises to $5.10 and is all-in, UTG+1 calls $3.63

      KT would have an OESD and everything else would have a Gutshot or pairs. No flush draws possible and there are a total of 16 combinations of KT and I have 3 opponents. So, should I slowplay or protect/value bet? Now when I think about this hand I think I shouldn't have slowplayed and raised the first time itself. CO and MP1's ranges could have KT and too many opponents so more players could hit weird stuff on the turn.

      Turn: ($14.24) 6 (4 players, 3 are all-in)
      River: ($14.24) 5 (4 players, 3 are all-in)

      Results: $14.24 pot ($0.94 rake)
      Final Board: J Q 3 6 5
      UTG+1 showed K Q and lost (-$5.38 net)
      MP1 showed T A and lost (-$1.65 net)
      Hero showed J J and won $13.30 ($7.92 net)
      CO showed A Q and lost (-$1.75 net)

      Don´t see way how you can fold there middle set, I would prefer raising flop myself, although call is also fine, against midstack shove it is easy shove for value.

      So, should I slowplay or protect/value bet?
      - since it is rainbow board you can consider just flatting, since they can´t really have there too many draws, I would definitively raise on QJ9 and QcJc3s boards.

      Best regards,
