I don`t have any reads on the villain.
Preflop I just call. I think my hand is good enough to play multiway pot.
OTF I choose to c/r GS and NFD. Is that a good line and is bet sizing good?
OTT I lead out for 1/2 the pot since i c/r the flop and took initiative. What do you think about that line?
River is a no-brainer

The problem i see here is that villain in mp has a strong range on the flop. He leads into 3 other people so I don't think the c/raise accomplishes a whole lot.

I would think there is little to no fold equity on such a draw heavy board. I would prefer to c/call, assuming there is some decent implied odds as villain should be pretty strong here when we hit.

If we c/raise I assume we're just stacking off on the spot. Villains stacking off range is probably AK/AA/KQ/all sets. Our equity isn't as good against the sets but we're in ok shape.

The real problem w/c raising is if villain calls like he did and then shoves over our bet on the turn we have a really tough spot where we kind of have to call off given the price I believe. Also if we just check then villain will obviously interpret us our flop raise as a draw and give us incorrect odds to draw to the river.
I think check/jamming the turn is ok too actually, villain just calling flop should suggest he is leaning towards showdown value hands, and I would assume there is some fold equity ott. Even when called we have a decent amount of outs.
