If I was going to take a stab at it, I would do it on the flop (probably raise to 150 or so). That is the cheapest way to find out where you are in this hand.

I would fold the flop, it's so draw heavy, and there is NO way of protecting my hand, even if I am ahead (which I certainly can't be sure of).

I raise this flop for a couple of reasons:
1) You are on top pair of an unraised pot, you're likely the best hand so the raise probably has some value.
2) You may well win the pot with a raise -- this is the type of pot some like to take stabs at.
3) Your hand is extremely vulnerable to all manner of overcards that might call a small bet behind you.
4) You have position on the bettor -- so if after raising and getting called you hate what comes out on the turn (which ends up happening), you can always check behind and take a look at the river and might even induce a busted straight draw to throw a small bet in.

How's my reasoning?

I fold the flop and I check if the SB had checked. This is not a good pot to get involved in. Plays like this need to be eliminated from your game if you want to acheive maximum success.
