4/8 FL Big 08 ring game- building a big pot with a one way world draw?

8 handed table, 4/8 FLO 8
game has been generally weak passive, lots of 6-8 way pots for 1 bet pre-flop.
Lots of old recs.
Another game broke and a new player has significantly changed the action at our table, making it 3 and 4 bets pre with all sorts of trashy hands.
I've seen him play 2 hands, one where he spiked a gutshot on the river for a massive pot and another where he made it 4 bets pre with something like 24579 and made nut low for half another big pot.

In this hand, i'm one off the button and holding AKJT2

Early position is new player and he standard open raises. 3 players call and I make it 3 bets. A blind cold calls, EP caps it and calls around.

6 ways to a flop of AQ3

We've flopped the world draw for the high half of the pot.

EP new player checks and a MP player puts in the first bet. Calls around to me and this is my biggest decision point in this hand. Once the EP checks I'm fairly certain he'll call rather than put in the 3rd bet and i'm fairly certain the blind player will just call as well.

So I have to decide if I want a cheap card or play for more on the flop.

I put in the raise, it gets 3 bet by MP and I cap it. We go 6 ways to turn card with the pot being at/around $200.

My high hand bricked. I'm wondering if you like building a pot on that flop or would rather take a cheaper turn card.

Winning big O is all about pushing thin edges in multiway pot, raise/cap is far from thin

Also you can still runner runner the wheel

Heads up or family, I'm putting in as many bets as I can on the flop, planning to reassess based on what turn card falls.
