Default Need a line check in the BB

I'm new at the table (less than 10 hands) so no particular reads.

PokerStars 1/2 Hold'em (6 handed) converter

Preflop: Hero is BB with J[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img], 2[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img]. CO posts a blind of $1.
UTG calls, MP calls, <font color="#CC3333">CO (poster) raises</font>, Button calls, <font color="#666666">1 fold</font>, Hero calls, <font color="#CC3333">UTG 3-bets</font>, MP calls, CO calls, Button calls, Hero calls.

With 5 players in, I don't think I can let this go for either of these bets. No? Yes?

Flop: (15.50 SB) T[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img], K[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img], Q[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(5 players)</font>
Hero checks, <font color="#CC3333">UTG bets</font>, MP calls, CO calls, Button calls, <font color="#CC3333">Hero raises</font>, <font color="#CC3333">UTG 3-bets</font>, MP calls, CO calls, Button folds, Hero ?

A 2-card flush against 3 opponents playing 6-max...I'm pretty happy with the check-raise, and my inclination is to cap for value since I don't think anybody's going anywhere. What do YOU do?

You are frequently going to be up against a set here, so I don't think your flush alone has sufficient equity to cap. With your straight draw, though, cap away. Cry if the board pairs on the river after you hit on the turn.

I like the line so far, and would agree with a cap on the flop here.

Fold p/f first time around, call second, cap flop.

Eh, it's a little loose, but not too bad 5 ways.

Nope. vnh. I'm honestly pretty surprised you didn't get raised on that river. What were they packing?

Personally I never would've called the first raise; you only have one thing going for this hand and IMM is a marginal mway hand to begin with. Would be interesting to know how many times you could play J2s even @ 6:1 and make any money.

I don't get the flop check - what's its purpose? Are you trying to build a bigger pot or trying to win this already humungoid pot? (For all you know utg limped a mway hand and 3-bet pf to maximize implieds and pairing 2's could beat it.)

IMM you should not be trying to tie 4 others to the pot - you should be trying to win it because it was already huge...

I was, too, but I was prepared to call one back to me.

MHIG
UTG had J[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img]J[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img]
MP had A[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img]Q[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img]

Edit: Oh, and CO (poster and PFR) accused us of being "...a bunch of colluters [sic]..." on the turn.
