      I don`t know the "best" way to play it but usually in multiway pots tp no kicker is a one street hand for me. Either I bet it out on the flop/give up to further action or just give it up if there is action in front of me.

      In this spot I would just fold flop. I`m oop and even with just a minbet I can`t expect to improve that much , you`re not even sure you have outs here so you almost never improve. I guess if you really like your hand you could raise / fold flop but I prefer just to let it go. There are a lot of fishes who try to lure you into the pot by minbet/minbet/pot line with nuts.

      Just fold it on the flop. You got a weak hand in a multiway pot on a drawheavy board. Its no use to continue play.

      I´d bet/fold flop for value
      - players would call with worse hands
      - you´re often aehad
      - you don´t have to be guessing and c/c someone down

      When I b/f flop and someone calls depends on my reads I´m going to b/f again or c/c or c/f, depends if I think that someone can float on that board and then bet/call with worse hands

      when still someone calls, then I´m going to c/f river, since I don´t expect worse ahdns to bet very often
      when I c/c turn, then I decide on my reads if I want to c/c river or c/f river

      as played: c/f river is better lien than calling him down
