      I am raising here preflop in position.

      As played you are in all sorts of problems in a 5 way limped board, given you hold top 2 with connectors means OESD at worst, possible flopped straights, flush draws, sets...

      As played I am following your line on the flop, but checking turn to either call a small bet or fold to a large one.

      River again check - call small fold to large.

      I have made it a habit from experience (not so big experience mind you but still I made up my mind about it pretty fast :P ) that if I have a suited connector against 2 *loose* limpers, then I just limp behind. I hate 3 or 4-way raised pots... :p

      So basically it is kind of table and opponent dependant wheither I raise in that spot (usually I'm more inclined to raise all the time). Here it was a limp-behind spot :)

      Bet turn to protect and get value from draws and also for a free sd if the river is completing some draws.

      I would prefer raising preflop for isolation against 1 or both limpers IP. But limping behind is also ok. You just have to be more cautious postflop.
