      I have no idea how to play on SH table, this was FR table, but people sat out. But probably it was wrong move to bet flop for value/protection against flush with such a weak hand.

      I don't think it's that bad if you opponent isn't the type to check/raise these boards all the time. The truth is your hand is likely best on the flop but it's still really weak, it'll have to dodge a ton of overcards and other draws villain could have so that you win at showdown, assuming he doesn't bet to take you off it. Depending on how comfortable you feel checking behind and calling a bet from him on the turn, i think there is nothing wrong with c-betting that hand while thinking of it as a likely 5 outer.

      That being said unless players behind you are tight you might not want to open that hand, tho since they likely are full ring players they probably are tight enough.

      Hope it helps.
