      Bad flop to conti-bet with K high?
      He limped preflop, so probably either a low PP or suited connectors. More likely the flop hit him than me.

      Dont do SSS with 6 players.
      On FT they love rr cbet. You probably has 7 outs here, and dont have A. Probably fold is a good option, but cbet is not.

      the thing with the players was already mentioned/explained by you:

      imo:
      raise 1bb more preflop because of your bad position... than it´s an easy all in on the flop

      the way you played:
      push flop... your stack is small and if you are behind you still have some outs. i think also the standard strategy says to push if you are heads up ans your stack is less than 1,5 of the pot

      I check/fold here on that board with K-high hands. A pair or Draw will call us and very often also only A-high hands. So we can not win that hand unimproved.

      Raise 1BB more pre-flop, as was mentioned by frzl and push flop.
      Berliner's thoughts about this hand seem very logical to me, but I think on this limit push will be still +EV
