Well ... this hand sounds a little bit strange to me. I suppose that in low stakes is normal to find 5 players implied in a hand because it's really cheap.
IMHO, first of all, I would never have played the hand you had. Ok, it's cheap so let's play bingo. With 5 players in the flop and turn, I would have shown more aggressivity having the nuts. Too many players, so the probability to catch something increases rapidily for the opponents. The raise in the turn is ridiculous. Why slow playing there?

Not what I'd say was the best time to be sitting with just a pair or two. Sounds like you weren't even considered if you didn't have a FH in this case. I guess DaMess is right though with the fact so many playing in lower stake games allows such opportunities to exist. I play in the lower stakes myself, but in SnG's $1 to $5 level never have played in these type of games.

Does anyone read the format, before they make comments? It's Fixed limit. I admittedly have limited experience playing limit hold'em, can't say I care for it much. That aside, I know ranges are a lot wider, and you'll commonly see more players in community pots since it's relatively shallow stacked play compared to Pot Limit or no limit.
Sick cooler for everyone who didn't win though, even in the micros, a 3-way full house is pretty damn rare to see.
