      If I'm being honest I'd probably have just shoved preflop or on the flop to get value out of Draws although those are both very risky plays due to the multiway nature of things.

      Edit; Having called preflop and noting the flop is 8way I don't mind playing for pot control either. Getting away if some huge bets indicating Sets/two-pairs etc come on turn before we get to act. (Thats Bigstacks pushing like 100BB btw)

      Turn; having just called minbet flop we now can't delay the push any longer, we get such good odds that there is literally no point in just calling now. Push as the most Equity we could possibly need is like 35% or something ridiculous.

      preflop i don't like to call here. Sure you get like 1:7 odds, but against 8 people you never know where you're at with this hand even if you hit the flop. except you hit 2Pair or better but this just happens in like 5% of all cases.
      if you had 22 you would hit your set in like 12%, so then the call is automatic.


      as played for the postflop part I agree with:

      Shove or Fold preflop, you only can overlimp PP like hands since they flop a strong hand against multiple opponents.

      If you removed the results you get a significant more objective verdict but as played I think either start your aggression by raising on the Flop

      Or do it on the Turn but I prefer as soon as possible despite a family pot
