      Preflop looks weird, Id fold it. On flop, against so many opponents with top pair weak kicker I wouldn't bet it. On turn I'd raise more 3.5 or smthing and calling opponent raise is ok I guess because he will hold J too often here and river is fine.

      I like to fold pf.
      QJ plays fine postflop, but open limp seems weak and you don´t want to call raise with that hand preflop.
      I like your bet on the flop, since you have some fold equity and you could have the best hand.
      I would c/c turn. You don´t have to protect your tpmk on drawy board, so nothing wrong taking free card. Against CO raise I like to fold. CO is representing here two pair or straight and since it is limped pot I´ve no reason to think that I´m ahead here. You may think that you have 8 outs, but CO could easily hold here KJ, which means you can´t win..
      Imo you could fold river. You´re not enough ahead here to make call profitable.
