I turned a flush, now what?

This is a 1/2 NL game that takes place in Iowa at Diamond Jo casino. I am from the Twin Cities but Minnesota really only runs 2-100 spread games so I usually have to travel out of state to play no limit cash. The max buyin is $300 and that is what I bought in for. I sat down about 10 minutes earlier and had only been dealt 3 hands, one of which I won a decent pot so I start the hand with $450. The villain starts the hand with $1100, which is VERY uncommon for this game, since it generally plays really tight and ABC.

Hero: $450
Villain: $1100

The villain in the hand straddles to $6 from UTG. I am 2 to his left so I am effectively UTG+1 in this hand.

Hero is dealt: 7 8

UTG limps for $6, hero limps for $6, there are 3 more limps behind. The villain, who is in the straddle makes it $25 more. UTG calls. I contemplate a call but then someone behind me calls out of position on accident. I eventually end up making the call, as does everyone else (lol). We are SIX ways to the flop:

J 9 3

Both blinds check to the villain, who leads out for $100. I think about it and call. We are now heads up to the turn.

K

Villain checks

Hero? I have about $320 left in my stack and the pot already has $386 or so in it. Do I jam? Do I just bet? If so, how much? Can you ever check back?

Also - Do you ever shove the flop? Or is that too volatile with so many people left to act behind?

    Bet like $125 here so that he feels like he needs to call with his one pair hands as well as a high club. This is good turn variable sizing where you have other hands besides just representing flushes and QT. Sets up a nice all-in size on the river. Bart
