Default Curtains Hand - Too Weak?

I feel like I have to bet this flop after its checked around and then if not at least take a stab at the turn and probably call the river bet. So i play each street different, anyone else?

Party Poker No-Limit Hold'em Tourney, Big Blind is t15 (10 handed) converter

BB (t1025)
UTG (t1180)
UTG+1 (t985)
UTG+2 (t890)
MP1 (t900)
MP2 (t1065)
MP3 (t1235)
Curtains (t975)
Button (t915)
SB (t830)

Preflop: Curtains is CO with Q[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img], J[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img].
<font color="#666666">2 folds</font>, UTG+2 calls t15, MP1 calls t15, <font color="#666666">2 folds</font>, Curtains calls t15, <font color="#666666">1 fold</font>, SB completes, BB checks.

Flop: (t72.50) T[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img], 8[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img], J[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(5 players)</font>
SB checks, BB checks, UTG+2 checks, MP1 checks, Curtains checks.

Turn: (t72.50) 7[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(5 players)</font>
SB checks, BB checks, UTG+2 checks, MP1 checks, Curtains checks.

River: (t72.50) 3[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(5 players)</font>

I feel your points, but to be honest, I don't think it matters. Play this hand however... it won't really affect your EV IMO.

TPGK with a gutshot draw in a 5-way pot worth 73chips... if Curtains isn't playing this hand (who's postflop play is stellar, at least compared to most of us in the lower limits) it probably isn't worth playing ever.

The fact that it's Level 1 means he probably has another 7 tables open. If I had $1,672 worth of SNGs open simultaneously, I wouldn't want to spend too much time fighting over 73 chips either.

I wonder if he would have contested this pot if he was only playing this table and it was a $1,000 SNG...

Can I just throw out the obvious and ask why not bet the flop?

How can you not bet this flop? You limp suited connected broadway early in a SNG. Not a bad play. Then you flop top pair good kicker w/ gutshot. And you don't bet it TWICE?

I bet the flop. And if I check it, I bet the turn. If I check both, I don't call the river.
