IMO without a second thought..... Over pr. And second nut draw. for me... easy peezy. even against sets and made flushes u have descent equity.. I would have raised more pre with the limpers in there though.. Pockets dont like multiway pots too much and play much much better hu. I would prolly make it 5 or 6x to go.just my .02

preflop, with 3 limpers, you need to be raising more. I'd have made it 120 instead of 60 (3BB + 1 BB for each limper).

On the flop, the only hands you're behind are AA (shouldn't limp preflop), Ax clubs or a set. There are so many hands that the opps have that do not fall into that range, especially early, that I'm calling that shove basically every time. You're ahead of any single pair of the board and ahead of 2 over cards.

If you'd have raised more preflop, then the pot would have been larger and made this a lot easier decision for you, to call.
