      I would fold here, on a 5-way paired board, u are too often beat IMO
      if you are not beat probably u will tie the pot

      i agree with troublemaker in that you might be beat, but I think that would depend more on what kind of stats I have with those players. I mean, there are only a few hands that will beat a straight (besides heart flush).

      in the end, you might just split pot, but since there is 1 caller already, i think there might be ground for you to call (2 of you might split the 3rd guy's money).

      this is just how I personally feel about this hand, but with regards to proper strategy, it's probably a fold.

      at best you get a split pot but not often enough fold river, btw i would simply c/c the river i dont think many worth hands will call you here.
