      I think your fold was absolutly right, since every overpair would have beaten you.
      Following strict to the SSS rules you only should play two pair or better, seeing a freeflop, so guess it was right played.

      TPTK, indeed... not the strongest hand you can have in 7way pot, though. I definitely wouldn`t bet it ! The board is quite drawy, especially given the unraised pot. I would assume that some of my opponents are very much likely holding a draw hand. This means that my FE is quite low.

      I guess I would c/r. Again, the board is drawy and even with the tiny bet he made, the pot is ~ half of your stack. I think it is worth fighting for it, in this spot.

      i think a pair of 7's with an ace kicker even tho TPTK is not a hand to play on that flop, you play vs 7 opponents on a connected board. almost every turn card can ruin your hand and you can't really lead out at that flop. people can also have 2 pair there, sets, or limped with overpairs.. in case people call the raise before you, you'd be scared of 3 4 5 6 8 9 and any other overcard that is not an ace. so you can't really know what to expect and i think waiting for a better situation is the best option. c/r is a also an ok move but since you play at a 7way pot with SSS check raising there will get you committed with a very marginal hand, again, i think waiting for a better situation where you have a substacial edge is the best choice imo.
