      Hi,


      If BB is a tag and he's playing his hands aggressively making a small 3bet and calling it off hoping to see KQ or worse flushdraws is a fine line. If you don't know that then you'll likely isolate yourself against Jx when you 3bet, but even then you probably have around 10 outs so it's never a big deal, but flatting in position is certainly less risky and allows you to control the size of the pot to fit your needs.

      I'd probably bet around $2 on the turn, and since you don't beat much on river now that even KQ got there except busted flushdraws, i think checking behind is reasonable.


      Hope it helps.
