This is a discussion on Fold Royal Flush draw? within the online poker forums, in the Tournament Poker section; https://www.cardschat.com/newattachment.php?do=manageattach&p=
would anyone have discarded it on the flop?
Getting paid off 3 players with a royal flush nice with that amount of players all in most of the time you are priced in I reckon on the flop as any Jack or spade and sometimes an ace even will win it for you before you see opponents cards turned over nice hand.
I believe the odds of a straight and flush draw are about 54% most of the time when you're only playing one opponent. My thought process would be: I have ~12 outs, the implied odds are crazy, and I definitely have a good shot of winning this. Plus, you get the rush of hitting the best hand in poker.

This seem to be more of a "run good story" than a question. But on the flop OP had 12 outs, 11 of which were to the nuts. With that in mind I cant imagine any situation, where it would be correct to call preflop but then fold on the flop in a multiway pot.
Looking at the opponents' cracks and their potential strength after the flop, I would venture to suggest that the hand history developed in such a way that the pot odds simply obliged the hero to continue the fight to the end.
