      As you'll see, the table is loosey goosey.

      SB ($9.43)
      BB ($6.25)
      UTG+1 ($25.61)
      UTG+2 ($17.11)
      MP1 ($3.80)
      MP2 ($19.81) (Hero)
      MP3 ($3.68)
      CO ($11.30)
      Button ($13.74)

      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with K:heart: , A:spade:
      UTG+1 calls $0.10, 1 folds, MP1 calls $0.10, Hero raises to $0.60, MP3 calls $0.60, 2 folds, SB calls $0.55, 1 folds, UTG+1 calls $0.50, MP1 calls $0.50,

      Flop: K:spade: , 9:heart: , 4:diamond: ($3.1) 5 Players
      SB checks, UTG+1 bets $0.75, MP1 calls $0.75, Hero???

      I hope you don't mind if I stop it here, it's just that this is the point where brain freeze kicked in.

      How would you proceed?

      I'd raise to $5.

      You can't fold your hand, and you can't really call with so many players in the hand.

      I raise to $4, my goal is to get Value and not having fold equity. If deep-stacked UTg comes over the top I fold.

      Just wanted to say thanks for the comments. For those interested here's the hand in full.

      SB ($9.43)
      BB ($6.25)
      UTG+1 ($25.61)
      UTG+2 ($17.11)
      MP1 ($3.80)
      MP2 ($19.81) (Hero)
      MP3 ($3.68)
      CO ($11.30)
      Button ($13.74)

      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with K:heart: , A:spade:
      UTG+1 calls $0.10, 1 folds, MP1 calls $0.10, Hero raises to $0.60, MP3 calls $0.60, 2 folds, SB calls $0.55, 1 folds, UTG+1 calls $0.50, MP1 calls $0.50,

      Flop: K:spade: , 9:heart: , 4:diamond: ($3.1) 5 Players
      SB checks, UTG+1 bets $0.75, MP1 calls $0.75, Hero raises to $2.25, MP3 calls $2.25, 2 folds, MP1 calls $1.50,

      Turn: T:spade: ($10.6) 3 Players
      MP1 checks, Hero bets $10.60, MP3 calls All-In $0.83, MP1 calls All-In $0.95,

      River: 5:heart: ($13.33) 3 Players


      Results:
      MP1 has Q:diamond: , 9:club:
      Hero has K:heart: , A:spade:
      MP3 has A:club: , A:heart:
      Outcome: MP3 wins $12.44
      Outcome: Hero wins $0.23

      At the time I was caught by UTG+1s donkbet. So with that in mind and a dry board, I raised less thinking it would allow me to get away from the hand if things got too hinky. On review though, I think it's too weak and doesn't actually serve that purpose on this loose a table.

      So yeah, I bottled it ;)

      Again, many thanks for the help, it's much appreciated.

      I think a bet of 5$ is too high... potsize will do, even a bit less to not scare the idiots away.

      Sorry that you got ripped here ^^
