      MP ($8.02)
      CO ($5.25)
      Button ($23.30)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with K, A
      UTG calls $0.05, 1 fold, CO calls $0.05, Button calls $0.05, 1 fold, Hero raises to $0.35, UTG calls $0.30, CO calls $0.30, Button calls $0.30

      Hero checks, UTG bets $0.15, CO calls $0.15, Button calls $0.15, Hero calls $0.15

      River: ($2.02) 3 (4 players)
      Hero checks, UTG bets $0.10, CO calls $0.10, Button calls $0.10, Hero folds

      Total pot: $2.32 | Rake: $0.10

      Didn't want to do a conti-bet on that board and I didnt expect all to call.
      Called turn because of good odds for A K or straight.
      River fold since I should be beaten with so many opponents.

      comparing to NL10, NL5 seems way too loose... raise 7x blinds and getting 4 callers is crazy :) ... it doesnt happen so often at NL10...

      I would bet 0.75 on the flop... I think any A, K or T would make your hand best one...

      I probably wouldn't contbet on flop, it's too likely someone hit something, but I would bet 1$ on turn when I'm sure my overcards are outs. You played it too passively in my opinion, maybe you should try to get the pot without the showdown?

      You could try to c-bet, but against calling stations c/f is fine when someone bets big.
