not bad IMO. i'm assuming you were entertaining the idea of letting UTG-flop-raiser take another crack at it and hit him with a reraise.

with this big'o family pot, taking the initiative on the turn might be a good idea. not sure what he was trying to accomplish with the minraise on the flop. with eeeeeeeverybody calling, it's quite possible you might have missed the UTG-bet/reraise opportunity. and with TWO draws now on board, i'd hit it too. with this game plan though, i might bet it just a little harder. if either UTG or UTG+1 calls, the two behind will have the required odds if they picked up the flush draw.

sorry....failed to notice that UTG DID in fact pass on the turn. short of sleeping on JJ (which even then i'd guess he would bet with the 2nd draw on board) - you have the nuts. again, i'd hit it HARD and happily collect the nice pot. there's no way i check the turn (not that you would have).

some could argue for reraising on the flop behind the already two callers. likely you could have taken it here for an equal sized pot without the risk of the turn card. but i would be tempted to give UTG another try on the turn....just hoping a card doesn't fill the J9 staight-drawer.
