      Preflop is fine because you're deep if you're confident in your postflop game out of position.

      I'd bet a tad more on the flop and on the turn, since i think most of the time we're still ahead and MP3 will rarely fold any piece of that board, he either has a flushdraw, a decent top pair or some kind of pair+gutshot hand. $2.8 on the flop and as played $6.2 on the turn looks better, we need to get the value before all his draws miss.

      River is tough, it's possible he has a boat at that point and we're also splitting with another Jx a bunch. On a 4-straight board it's hard for him to call it off with a bare Qx or even something like QT. Since he doesn't look aggressive it's probably still better to shove yourself, but i wouldn't have minded a check/call against somebody capable of bluffing busted clubs.

      Hope it helps.
