      Didn´t know what to do there. wanted free showdown, but he bet quite big. I think fold was right, but would also call have been OK (against unknown opponent) ?

      very rarely you will get a free showdown with 3 players and such a rag flop.
      imo bet 2/3rds the pot and then re-evaluate the flop.
      If its still dry by the turn and river, bet again.

      I don't like betting on flop and turn, but on the river I'd throw out a little blockish bet about 0.5, just to have an easy fold if we're raised and to get some value from lower pockets, a 7, whatever decides to call.
