      Without reads it's fine both as you played it and when you raise the turn as well. First line let's him continue to valuebet worse hands without you announcing you have the near-nuts by raising, at the expense of sometimes allowing a 4th heart to come in, which could kill your action against stuff like QJ. Second line makes sure you stack bad players with two pairs/straights/low flushes immediately, but will tell people with a clue that you're very likely to have the nutflush or close to it.

      On the river we're kinda worried SB has the nut flush, he led out small on the flop 3-way, then continued to bet when the flush came in and now he's overbet-jamming the river. There is a chance he plays the J-high flush like that since you don't really look like you have a strong flush yourself, but the tighter he is the more his range will be exactly the nut flush. Depends how you perceive him, against an unknown I'd call, if he's a tight reg frankly you might want to get away from it.

      Hope it helps.
