      On flop no draws, except T8s which is not in there calling range, maybe some gutshots are possible.
      I didnt cbet, because I am first to act, and it would look very strong, so I wanted to slowplay, and hope they hit set.
      On turn, I thought he has straight (he doesnt have QQ in his range), so I just called, and planned to just call river (maybe he has set as well).
      River check raise ok?

      The biggest problem is you wanting them to have certain hands, in this case a set. Apart from that, think of what happens when they have a set? Money goes in whatever you do so just cbet. You are 3rd to act as well... Makes no sense to check KK there.

      Starting from the flop, you have J, Q, T, 8, 6, 5 as bad cards and flushing cards as semi-bad since it gives your opponents more equity. Plus, you can get so much value from middle cards they call with because everything has a piece there.

      On the turn, the same bad cards apart from no more flush cards so bet bigger. What you did is just fancy play forgetting the basics: value betting is your main weapon.
