      Here I think the beginning of the hand is standart. On the river I was balanced between getting value from kings or weaker nines, and controling the pot against the flush. I finally chose that he didn't called the contibet for a backdoor flush, and so it's just bad luck if he has one. Good thinking?

      Hi,
      Good thinking?

      about flush is ok. But for me main problem is your cbet.I don't like it because flop is very dry and you have 3 oops and tight bu behind.What worse hands can call you in this multiway pot? 9x,88. So I would think about check behind.Your river is Ok.
      Hope it helps.

      Since I don´t really see how we can c/c flop I prefer betting hand that has showdown value and even against 3 players we should have the best hand quite often
      Turn check and river raise is fine
      Consider his bet size I think he has there Kx or even weaker hands like TT/88
