      I did these plays a lot myself and I still get carried away. You can not bet into 6 players after free play unless you have monster. On this board c/f is just fine imo.

      this one is ugly.

      betting seems the weakest scenario to me. You don`t have any information and are blind-commited on turn (whatever comes)

      1) check/fold (against 5 opponents)
      2) check/push - at least you will see what`s going on and be able to finish it right on the flop) but in this case you will have to give up your hand if everybody checked behind.

      However, on this board, against 5 opponents I like 1st option way more somehow. I mean, situation is definately marginal, why not to wait for the better one? especially, given that we didn`t invest anything, but a Big blind.
