      SB is 91/4 after 23 hands, everyone was chasing him

      I'm having bad implied odds against UTG, but there was high chance that very fishy SB will be involved in hand too. What do you think of PF play?
      Flop gives me monster draw. But some hard times with turn- I decided to put him all in for maximum FE and to avoid hard decisions on river in case if my draw didn't completes. I'm not checking behind because IMO against such player my hand is to strong and I want value.

      It's likely that SB will get involved in either scenarios so I prefer to raise to isolate him and get the initiative.

      The J doesn't change much. If you put SB on a FD then betting for protection is fine.
      I want to highlight that you shouldn't bet for fold equity. If you think you are behind you better off checking behind since this guy will rarely fold a made hand on this board.
      If he does happen to have a better hand you are going to stack him off anyway if you hit your draw.


      - check behind if you think you are behind.
      - bet if you think you have the best hand.

      I hope this helps, good luck.
