I've been focusing on cash lately and posting a few winning hands, trying to see if I should be more aggro with the nuts.

No reads here, all players in pot have above starting stacks.

Decided to just flat in c/o, should I raise here? how much?
Wet flop J5K gives me up/down str8, utg bets 2X (Kx or Jx)?
I flat for pot control with SB still to act.
Should I raise here to inflate the pot as early as possible?
SB checks, WHY????. Either drawing or massive. Hmmmmm?
Turn gives me str8, SB and utg both check, I bet full pot.
Again SB just calls, I'm ahead, SB must have lots of outs.
Blank on the river, so again I bet full pot.
If villain is massive AcJc, J5, KJ or set, can I bet more?

Hi F1sh,

You could raise the limpers, or call preflop imo. I don't mind raising to take the initiative.

Flop and turn are fine. I think we should be betting big for sure, and while your sizing is fine, it could be a spot we can go for an overbet. If he missed a draw he's not calling anyway, but if he's got a strong hand he will. If he has a medium strength hand like KQ, he may feel like we missed our hand and call if when we polarize ourselves with a big bet. So maybe like $2 here?

Thanks for the hand analysis,
For some reason the villians hand is mucked above.
On the original replayed hand villian mucked set 555.
