You played that hand pretty poorly to be honest. That was a great flop for you, why wouldn't you bet it? Checking was just giving UTG free chances to draw out on you.

You're correct. I think where my thinking went wrong was "Wow this pot is so big already, let's just check this down". Would I should have been thinking was "This flop is good, I should bet for value because I might win a sidepot heret"
I'm pretty sure that in this scenario I was so focused on that "big post flop pot" (which really isn't that relevant anymore) that I did not even think about taking a good betting line towards UTG.

5-bet preflop, UTG doesn't seem to be going anywhere, and we have his trashy range crushed. Even if he folds, there's plenty of dead money to compensate for the times we don't beat UTG+1.
As played, bet the flop.
As played, bet the turn.
As played, bet the river.
If you're not going to pummel the fish, you're not going to win big!!!
