Flop (Pot : $6.50)
I decided to 3bet pre to iso the reg because I don't think my hand plays good multiway. What hands are you flatting here to keep the limping fish in other than suited aces? How would it change if he was super terrible, like 80/5 vpip.
What range do you put player 2 on after he overcalls? How would it change if he was a reg? If he's a donk he's probably pretty wide and flatting anything decent looking.
I'd feel great about my hand if it was heads up. As it is, should I still be excited? During the hand I decided that it's a bet/stack off against either of them if the other one folds, and bet/fold if I get action from both of them. Then I would have expected my fd to be dominated a lot.

I think that pre you can flat anything that fairs well in multiway pots, looking to play pots with the weak player. Rainbow QQJJ type hands for example or double suited rundown hands. Also, depending on how aggressive the blinds are, you can be flatting a lot of your weaker big pair hands that you don't want to play in a 3Bet pot, but have some playability multiway on the button.
If player 2 is a weak player, I think he can show up with a lot of mediocre double suited hands, double pairs, alot of broadway combinations. Anything that looks pretty basically. A reg will show up with decent medium and high rundowns. Strong double pair hands. You could also see some decent kings that he doesn't know what to do with pre.
On the flop the SPR is still fairly high so I'm not estatic about the flop, but it's also not a terrible flop. I think if we bet and the reg jams, we may have to fold our hand as our flush draw will be dominated too frequently. Against the weaker player, I think his range will be too wide to fold to a shove. In the multiway situation I agree that we should fold.
In practice I like checking this flop and realizing our equity. I don't think we have a lot of fold equity on the flop against two players and I think our hand has too much equity to feel good about betting and folding. On the turn we can improve our hand and gain information on our players holdings.

I think this a perfect hand hand to have in your check back range here in a multiway pot, your equity vs hands that stack off isn't great but getting blown off your hand really hurts.

Its a bit surprising to me people like checking back here, so many turns are bad for us and I feel like we do have a decent amount of fold equity. Villains could easily both have 3 or 4 unpaired high cards, and even with naked TT-KK they might not feel like getting it in. I guess something could be said about protecting your check-back range, but I think that's over-thinking for this level.

I agree with checking back, if we bet we have to bet fold and its a bit gross, we can call turns on K,9,6,7,8,4,diamonds (at the very least), we also gain value when diamond hits on turn then player2 checks and player6 decides to stab.
I think it just plays better that way
