      - Is check-raising the best way to protect here?
      - Against two opponents should I protect or should I assume someone has a flush and call for full house odds instead.

      I prefer to bet/shove this flashing board. even if one of them as a flash you have 10 outs.

      If villains are aggressive enough you can C/Raise but you can Bet/Shove too. You may get calls out of some villains who wouldn't bet their hands.

      I would never just C/C in this spot. I want 1 card FD's, Top Pairs, two-pairs and overpairs to call me all-in on flop when i'm ahead.

      No because both can check behind so you are not protecting anything, Protection = Active betting

      Flopping a Flush is <1% so assume you are facing a FD, therefore Bet-Bet-Bet!
