      Well I think the best line is just to push all in preflop with so many limpers as you rarely get a flop as perfect as this by just checking and you don't want to play hands like this against so many opponents normally.

      As played, easy push on flop with top pair and nut flush draw.

      Hey phullhand,

      pushing preflop is ++EV. You'll rarely hit such nice flop and your hand is strong enough to push preflop and have equity advantage on the opponents. Besides, when you win the dead money in the pot preflop you get clear profit free of variance.

      As played, nice push on the flop.

      Regards,
