Preflop my plan was to limp/call OOP, limp/pot IP. I didn't want to play weakish aces OOP in a 3-bet pot. I now see no one had ever three bet :(. But when it was 5 way I
didn't want to pot into raiser because I thought my Ace outs may be in
the other hands that I expect to be a bit ace heavy. I didn't know what to do.


Was my plan too passive, should I have opened UTG?

Given the original limp, was the best play to fold to a raise an 3 callers? Pot? Or given almost 6:1, call and bet a flop I connect with?

Any thoughts on playing weakish aces OOP?
