      In general we should almost never slowplay unless we have good reason to do so.

      For example, if we have AA on A72r or KQ on a KKQ board. In these two situations, it's really hard for our opponents to have worse hands which can call a bet.

      However, in the hand you posted, there are a ton of worse hands which could come along. 8X/JT/QT/QJ/TT/JJ/67s are all possible hands which may call the Flop bet. As such, slowplaying here with 2 other players in the hand wouldn't make too much sense.

      This is a standard bet. Nice hand.
