      Preflop: Hero is BU with K, K.
      2 folds, MP1 raises to $0.30, MP2 calls $0.30, MP3 calls $0.30, CO folds, Hero raises to $1.60, SB folds, BB calls $1.50, MP1 calls $1.30, MP2 calls $1.30, MP3 calls $1.30.

      Flop: ($8.05) 2, T, 5 (5 players)
      BB raises to $1.94(All-In), MP1 calls $0.62, MP2 calls $1.94, MP3 folds, Hero raises to $2.40(All-In), MP2 calls $0.46.

      Turn: ($15.41) 6 (4 players)


      River: ($15.41) 7 (4 players)


      Final Pot: $15.41.

      Results follow:

      Hero shows a pair of kings(Kh Kc).
      MP1 shows high card ace(As Qc).
      MP2 shows a straight, ten high(8h 9s).
      BB shows three of a kind, sevens(7c 7h).

      MP2 wins with a straight, ten high(8h 9s).

      When I saw those 2 callers I was thinking this might result in a multi-way pot but I thought the raise size should be enough to thin them out. After seeing BB calling (he was 82/0) it was clear that the herd mentally will prevail and it's going to be multi-multi-multiway. I counted 0,3x(3+1+1)=1,5 for the 2 callers. Should I make the raise bigger? If so, how much?

      Hey BadeaCelRau,

      I would just shove all-in preflop. If you make the standard $1.50 raise you will be left with less than 2/3 potsize on the flop which means you would be commited to pretty much any flop.

      As played, nice hand! Easy all-in with an overpair.

      Best regards,
