      Flop: Standard bet

      Turn: Your kicker is weak so I don't mind checking. But against a weak player I prefer to bet 1/3 pot instead. KX and straight draws will often call another time, you buy a cheaper showdown vs better AX hands, and if you do hit your flush, you can bet again after building up the pot a little on the Turn. Not a play I would advocate often on the Turn but this usually applies for Top pair No Kicker + Flush Draw type of situations.

      River: As played you must call the River. You beat some busted draws and I don't think it's out of the question for villain to bluff the River with JT/QT.
