My thoughts:

With a few people sitting out, I felt like AJo was a reasonable open with appx 25bb (I late reg'd). Everyone folds to the BB, who makes the call. The flop in my opinion is one that I can both c-bet and check behind, although I felt that at my stack depth I would fold to too many turn stabs that weren't on an A/J/heart if I checked behind. I c-bet and villain calls. Turn is pretty interesting in that I hit top pair and have a nut flush draw, however here is where I feel as though I absolutely butchered this hand. Im not quite sure what to do here. I am pretty heavily armored vs straight draws given my nut flush draw, which cuts down on his potential outs. Im now beating pocket pairs (save full house ones) up to TT, tho I feel I woulda gotten jammed on by pocket pair combos on flop. So this is kind of a situation where Im beating a lot but cant get much worse to call. Should i have check called, and decided on river? I feel like no matter what Im going broke in this exact scenario.
