Tough lineups usually don't have a small ante though, so it's almost moot.
I don't think folding is awful but I don't think playing this hand is a fish move either. We have only 2 players to get through, I feel like this is a really standard steal.
What are the flat-calls likely to mean? To me the flat calls mean that we don't have that much to worry about from big low or high hands - on 5th I think there is a very good reason to believe we have the best hand at least one way and are drawing at the other side.
Don't forget that when you can describe an opponent as "very unlikely to fold" as a justification for not bluffing, it also means you can value bet what would normally be ridiculously light.
