      5 Players

      UTG ($20) 100bb
      CO ($11) 55bb
      BTN ($42.07) 210bb
      SB ($20.33) 102bb
      hero (BB) ($20.47) 102bb

      Pre-Flop: ($0.30, 5 players) hero is BB J J
      UTG raises to $0.40, 3 folds, hero raises to $1.60, UTG calls $1.20

      Flop: Q 2 6 ($3.30, 2 players)
      hero bets $2, UTG calls $2

      After my cbet there are still flushdraws, Qx+ and middle pairs in his range.

      Turn: Q ($7.30, 2 players)
      hero checks, UTG bets $3.65, hero calls $3.65

      The turn makes it less likely that i'm beatn so should i just bet again to get value from his flushdraws?
      Played c/c to induce him to bet weaker hands like 77-TT / potcontrol.

      River: K ($14.60, 2 players)
      hero checks, UTG bets $12.75, hero folds

      Can't call any bet on this river.

      Final Pot: $14.60

      I like your preflop play vs such a wide UTG but I don't really like postflop. You 3bet pre with JJ because he calls worse stuff like QTs, JTs, QJ, KQ, etc. I think your and downgrades a lot in value with Qxx there and not to mention all flushdraws can put reasonable pressure on you.

      I prefer taking the passive line and check/call.. You have Jc for some small extra equity and if you cbet you aren't getting called by much more than you can get called on the turn plus your hand is quite difficult to vbet vs his range.

      To help you out here in this spot, I would usually include KQ or maybe AQ with Ac in my check/call range to ensure I get to the river often and depending on what I see at showdown I can readjust that range of checking or cbetting.
