      Are you calling flop and turn for implied odds to catch a two pair or set?
      On the turn it is better situation for calling - pot is bigger and we have 3 outs more - gutshot draw.
      Raise with this hand is bad idea against so much oponents, its too weak on flop and turn.

      Standard is indeed to just call both flop and turn, you get sufficient odds both time and you could be ahead sometimes, I like the way you played it overall.

      Value-raising the turn isn't out of the question if you put villains on draws mostly, it might get gross against tricky/spazzy villains if you get min3bet or something tho.

      Hope it helps.
