      MP1: $0.93 (46.5 bb)
      BB: $1.31 (65.5 bb)
      Hero (CO): $2 (100 bb)
      SB: $1.55 (77.5 bb)
      MP3: $1.14 (57 bb)
      BTN: $0.11 (5.5 bb)
      MP2: $2.39 (119.5 bb)
      UTG+2: $1.97 (98.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with K K
      2 folds, MP2 raises to $0.04, MP3 calls $0.04, Hero raises to $0.24, BTN calls $0.11 and is all-in, SB calls $0.23, BB folds, MP2 calls $0.20, MP3 folds

      Flop: ($0.89) Q T A (4 players, 1 is all-in)
      SB checks, MP2 checks, Hero checks
      This seems to me a way ahead/way behind -- is that correct?
      Is check here too passive?

      Turn: ($0.89) 7 (4 players, 1 is all-in)
      SB bets $0.63, MP2 folds, Hero calls $0.63
      Called here because I think a lot of Qx and Tx hands will take a stab since I checked the flop. I think a made str8 would have already tried to get value.
      If its Ax, I'm done for but I'm used to that :D

      River: ($2.15) 8 (3 players, 1 is all-in)
      SB checks, Hero ???

      Hello VorpalF2F,

      Like the Check behind there and overall the turn call of course should be fine if we assume his range/betting range is wide. If rather vs passive opponent we might even want to give up the hand. It's a 3bet pot so it's more likely being in such a multiway pot that we may happen to be behind, we gonna see his hand anyways while one guy is all-in.

      As played I wouldn't bet the river for value anymore, doubt that he is calling you down loose.

      Best Regards.

      I'd play the same way.
