Hey Mike,

Don't know why you're eager to check the flop. Bet bigger on all streets imo and yes you'll have him all in on the river. When you bloat the pot out of position vs. an UTG raiser with no reads, and flop top set, don't be shy about getting money in.

You could check the flop to balance your ranges at higher stakes, but at 5NL there's little need to balance, as you can get called by worse.
As it happens, there are very few flush draws that a villain can have here, so it's kind of hard to get called by worse even if villain is quite loose. You have the Qc, so the only FDs in villain's range will usually be AKs, AJs and maybe KJs (3 whole combos!). I'm pretty surprised to see ATs show up here, and I'd always be stacking off, expecting to be shown JJ-99 more often than the nuts.
