      you play out of position, only have an overpair. You don't want to blow up this pot, do you? so check/call turn is good to induce bets from Jx, and missed flushdraw.

      I also check here, maybe even check-raise, to get called by Jx and let draws fold.
      Rivercard makes an easy check call.

      Hi undercover82!

      Nice hand! I would bet a bit more on the flop to get maximum protection (~$40-45) on this draw heavy board. On the turn I would also check for pot control as already mentioned by Divsla. On the river it's an easy check/call to get the most value from busted draws and to lose the minimum against better hands.

      Good luck at the tables!
