      IMO,you should have folded pf but as played bet PSB on the flop. You have TPTK and a draw for nuts and need to protect .
      I´d bet PSB on the the turn

      Fold pf. You'll be OOP with a hand that can easily be dominated, also you can quite easily set off a value chain with multiple callers at this level.

      As played, I shut down on the turn. You could already be up against so many hands smacking the crap out of you it's unreal, especially with that many players seeing the flop. If i can get a free or really, really cheap draw to the river, then I might want to see the final card, but it's almost certain you don't have the standard 9 outs here.

      There are just better spots to make money. You don't need to chase it.

      Preflop I'd fold or reraise - calling is usually bad. Flop: I'd bet PS - not to protect too much but because I'd play the same with hands like QQ.
