      tommygecko, depends on your image and dinamic. By default I would never expected utg to pay me stack with Jx. So I think vs unknown it is a check on the turn and call/bet river most of the time.
      And also by this check you balance your flop cbets with air.

      Are you ever betting 3way in a 3bet pot, for a size of 3/4 as a bluff? I don't expect non sets to ever call you here on the Flop unless villain is bad.

      If villain is a normal reg I agree that you need to bet smaller on the Flop and that you should check back on the Turn. I don't see UTG ever having JX here besides AJs KJs (which he probably folds if he's tight)

      If villain is a fish then turn is an easy push.
