      I would play check/call in case I get good odds. I am kinda confused about the board, on one hand its rainbow, on other its paired... the last is definately not good. I guess I might play it agressivle on the board like J 8 4 different suits against 3 opponents, but im not sure.

      updated: I thought about it again and I guess i would check/fold it even against 3 opp. Obviously, with such a hand we are willing to get good pot odds, so what`s the point of forcing opponents to fold.
      So i think the only spot where I would play it agressively on the flop is against completed small blind who has checked to me.

      On the turn I think check/fold is a good option. Ill explain why...
      1) You are not that much pot commited, since you invested a bit less then 1/3 of your stack

      2) your pot odds are approx. 1:3 and if I didn`t miss anything you have 8 outs if you put him on trips and 10 outs if yo put him on top pair. So in best case scenario our odds are 1:3.6 that is lower than our pot odds thus should be trashed.

      3) The guy is shortstack. Even if he doesn`t knows about SSS it doesn`t seem logicall to call 2.50 flop bet with nothing. I guess it indicates the made hand.

      I suggest you next time not to post results of the hand

      against 5 people I don't bet on flop, if it was 1 or 2 I would bet out, but definetly not against 5. How would you have continued with the hand if someone raised you on flop? Check/call (if you get the odds to call) is better line for the flop. Turn is a check/call or check/fold aswell if you didn't hit your straight.

      OOP against 5 Opponents, I would play check/Raise All-In. But thats depending on the Action. If one bets and another raises, their is a good chance of trips here and you could consider to fold your Draw here.

      Like played you have to go All-In on the Flop, even when you´re nearly every time behind.
