      Why do you play this hand preflop out of position? Do you have any statistics of MP1? You can't really expect him to limp/fold >50% of the time to make this an auto profit move so you are expected to play postflop a lot with such a crappy hand out of position

      With your stacksize when he 3bets, you are far behind and folding is often the best play because you dont flop toppairs often & any flushdraws are mostly dominated entirely

      The flop is a check/shove, that's the best flop in centuries for you (pair+flushdraw), just ignore the King as you have 14 outs
