      On another forum Berliner already said:

      Paired board, so we play this draw passive and play more likely check/fold and only call a very small bet.
      Is there any info I could look thrue on how to play on paired boards in diffrent situations? Or could someone elaborate on this pls?
      Furthermore, how to play this hand if it were a 3 for example?

      Thanks in advance,

      There are two different ways of looking at a paired board:

      1)Not much connects with it and your FE increases as a result.

      2)If you are drawing then your your hand is slightly less likely to win after you are called AND your hand hits. How relevant this is when your stack is only twice the size of the pot I'm not sure.

      In your posted hand in I'd check the flop because of 6 opponents rather than the paired board.

      If it would be a 3 of diamond that would change the situation slighty, cause you have 8 instead of 6 Outs for improving your hand, mostley for the Nuts.
      Since you are not drawing for a Nutflush, only the Outs that would give you a straight flush and the straight, would help you here.

      Against 6 Opponents here, I would play after Odds & Outs and play either c/c or c/f.
