I don't know why you think villain would check back a J? He wants to try extract value from pocket pairs or random A-high hands that people can't fold.

I think villain might check back a 4, but I would CBet with this as opponents generally don't like to fold to CBets on paired boards.

Having said that, I don't mind the call in position and seeing what happens on the turn (although this does go against one of ArtySmokes' principles - if you are playing to set mine and miss, then always fold.)

When he bets the turn, I think calling isn't a great option. I also don't really like raising, although I would prefer raising as a bluff to calling. I think just folding is best and move onto the next hand only losing a small pot.

I would fold the flop multiway. Even though we may be ahead some of the time it's not by much as we never know which turn/river overcards may or may not hit villain. Also we do not close the action OTF.

Turn I would fold as for him betting into two once and then again into you after you called the flop he will usually have a stronger range. That being said he may be valuebetting a lot of better OTR too.
