      Gut instinct tells me that with 3,4s you might just have the odds to complete with this many callers, but that with 3,4o you won't.

      yeah 43s might be alright. certainly not for 43o
      anyway you'll be first to act so that is also something u should be considering

      9:1 pot odds, implied ended up at 115:1. Should never forget implied odds... no one is ever likely to put you on 34o....

      With flops like that or A25 you are likely to get a top pair caller who is going to pay you well...

      And if you dont get them, its not hard to walk away. Even x 4 4 or x 3 3 you can let go of if put under a bit of strong pressure.

      I would just fold 34o, it's marginal call preflop and it will often lead you to marginal spots where you'll burn money in the long run imo...

      As played, I wouldn't mind check/calling on this very dry board since you don't want to scare away the opponents.
