      My personal line is to often just check/fold the flop because of the low equity/playability. I think just a gutshot is a bit too weak 3way here with a flushdraw and OOP.

      Now, as played you are trying to represent 76s, 89s, flushdraw imo.. those would be the really high equity hands I think, maybe some sets too ofc. Knowing this, all of those hands would bet 3 streets regardless of the development of the board (almost, just a couple of bad runouts).

      Final consideration is going to be though if we can make our opponent fold often enough on most runouts. Well, he is not folding a random pair to one bet, he is not folding a T9, T8 type hand to 2 bets almost ever and he doesn't call down Tx when J+ comes on turn/river imo so you have plenty of runouts to bet IF you think he is wide to play those hands with 1-2 calls and think you are capable of doing this with the value hands. If he thinks you c/r all nut hands he might call you too often.
