      Check/fold or check/call when you get the odds to call with your straight draw (but that's rather unlikely).
      You only have a OESD and you can't play that agressively. So it's check/fold all-the-way unless you hit your straight.

      I know that having 8 outs looks nearly as having won the hand, but it's not. In fact you're rather behind. Only having more than 12 outs (or maybe was it more than 13, but for sure 14 and more) grants you more than 50% equity. That way you should bet because it's a value bet. Here a bet is suitable only if you raised preflop - because that kind of continuation bet gives you large fold equity as well, so it's profitable.

      But the way you played it wasn't that bad of course :) . Semi-bluff on the flop is ok, but it's a lot better with large implied odds you gt only if you're playing as a big stack. That's why I like such play more when bigstacking. SSS is rather high-card oriented...
