      Don't play such hands from utg. You may play from button but you should open raise if everybody folded to you.

      As played I wouldn't bet middle pair with 4 players in the pot but I'd bet turn and river.

      SB and BB were so bad I wanted to get in with any 2 promising cards lol

      On flop only 1 person to act behind me so I bet my middle pair =)

      On turn I apply brakes since hes so loose+passive he could have anything

      T8s is not that bad of a hand, but if you decide to play that hand, then raise pf.
      I think you can also bet the turn, since your hand is strong and you have fold equity.
      I´d also call river.

      I didnt want to raise oop a marginal hand into 2 or 3 calling stations, they will call if I hit anyway. The idea is to see a cheap flop and hit a straight, flush or 2 pair. I usually just call drawing hands pf oop, why is this not recommended?
      Against these guys theres no fold equity lol they call with A high sometimes

      ty in advance

      If you limp, then you give blinds opportunity to see cheap/free flop and you can´t put them on a hand. So if you hit your medium pair or top pair, they might have better hand and you might loose a lot of money postflop.
      Also you have to hit two pair or better that get paid by other players, but that doesn´t happen too often.
