      It's tempting I know, but think like this... if you check the flop, how are you going to manage to shove 10 dollars into the pot on just the turn and the river? Even if one of the villains hit something on the turn, they're probably not ready to go broke with it. You need to bet here to build a pot - and against 3 it's even more likely that someone will call.
