      I almost never raise multiway as bluff, only with sets (even not 2 pair) so I wanted to start balance it. I planned to raise this hand and give up turn.
      If they have Ax, it should be hard for them to continue. Also I block 77 set so it is mostly Ax or fd against which I am ahead on flop.

      Is it ok spot? Or a spot when I have a gutshot?

      When I hit tripps, is it ok to bet 1/2 turn or even smaller (1/3) since he has now only 7 outs with his fd, and paired board he is regg so I dont expect him to continue. Maybe I coudl induce shove with Ax? BU folds 44% on check raise, but probably more in 3way and this situation.

      I think raising hands that are too weak to call but make the nuts would be my first choice to raise, so in this case, some gutshot. Next on my list would be hands like yours.. you block at least some set combos, you have OK equity vs 1pair and you should have quite some folding equity in a multiway pot like this where only MP can have a set imo. On the turn, just bet to leverage stacks, he can't really call profitably with any draw imo.. I think 1/2 pot might be a bit too big..
