Fold preflop. Twice.

You're giving up far too much equity by not raising preflop when it first comes to you.

really? i'm new to six max and have always played full ring. i would never play this type of hand in a full ring game in early to somewhat late position. i wouldn't have open limped with it but i thought i was in a good situation to limp it.

And check the turn, your folding equity is .0000001% for a semi-bluff here and there's not enough people in the pot to make it for value. Why does it say 3 players when it just shows you and UTG remaining?

Are you blind? He got a flush. If he raised preflop he would have had more money in than if he didn't. He's just lucky someone behind him raised so he could get in the C/R.

I don't mind going for the C/R PF if you know the people behind you are aggro, but you can only do this with a read. Usually just raise it up.

Wrong.
You are obviously not factoring in implied tilt.
