Bet 2/3 the pot and try to take it down. You're still a long way off the money. You have to accumulate more chips or bust out with a bang. Fold to a re-raise, if called, revaluate the turn.

Wait, I didn't read it properly, there's still ppl to act here. Check!!!

Definitely check/fold, I can't see them calling the $500 bet with air, plus there's two callers. someone is bound to have either a J or 9... plus there's a draw out there.

I didn't think anyone had anything so I value bet $300 and got 1 caller who had ace high.

I love the $1,000 freeroll. I have placed in the top 60 before.

Just to add to this a little. I really don't like the flop bet of 500. You were giving the first villain 4:1 to call and then it was 5:1 to call after him.

I think we would have rather either taken it down right there or checked. By betting so little on the flop we gave two villains odds to chase and they did.

Also your river bet was too small. You could have easily been called with middle pair and this beats our hand. Your style seems a little passive to me. This is just an observation, but, a little more aggression would have tightened up villains ranges and made this hand easier to play. As played villain could have chased the river with any two cards and it appears like they did.

Long term this is going to cost you alot of money.

Appreciate the excellent observations tosborn... you're right. I need to be more aggressive if I'm going to bet at all here.
