Im sure more times than any a draw will always call, I don't see many fish folding an A or K flush draw here or a Q or J. Even good players will call if not raise you on these boards with there draws, sets, 2 pair.
If you bet and and win the pot there and then whats the problem? why isn't betting here EV+. Why would you give anyone a free card to draw out on you?. Why would you check back the turn when the draw now has even less Equity against you? A free river card? i think not.
They are definitley tough boards but you need to be the aggressor with your hand unless your reads tell you something else.
I think its around 500.1 to flop a flush so your mostly ahead of the draws in which i would jam TPTK to any raise. Sure they might have a set or 2 pair put mostly they'll raise you with there draws.
