      This is almost hand-of-the-day it is so strange

      PokerStars - $0.02 PL Hi (6 max) - Omaha Hi - 6 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      BB: $1.08 (66.67/16.67/0.00/6 (V/P/3/H)
      UTG: $4.64 (75.00/25.00/0.00/12 (V/P/3/H)
      MP: $0.21 (75.00/8.33/0.00/12 (V/P/3/H)

      BTN: $3.85 (83.33/16.67/0.00/12 (V/P/3/H)
      Hero (SB): $2.16

      Hero posts SB $0.01, BB posts BB $0.02

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.03) Hero has :As: :Kh: :7s: :6d:

      UTG calls $0.02, MP raises to $0.09, fold, BTN calls $0.09, Hero calls $0.08, BB calls $0.07, UTG calls $0.07

      Flop: ($0.45, 5 players) :Qc: :2d: :Ah:
      Hero checks, BB checks, UTG checks, MP checks, BTN checks

      Turn: ($0.45, 5 players) :2h:
      Hero bets $0.28, fold, fold, fold, fold

      Hero wins $0.44

      When the flop is checked through and you hold the ultimate key card - :Kh: its reasonable to get 3 folds. One may have 2 pocket pair, the other middle rundown and the last one lower rundown, or JJ98 or w/e.

      I'd fold pre, crap hand, doesnt close action, worst position, multiway.

      I would play as You this hand. If the A is not suited then definitely fold pre.

      Would you open that hand from UTG? We can use our UTG range as starting point for preflop calling. Now there is one caller in between, which shifts the requirements for a hand a bit more towards nut potential. But also gives better odds for calling. Hero is out of position, and there are two players behind yet to act.

      Due the position and the fact that hero is not closing the action, this becomes a fold. If you were on the BTN, then call would be more ok.

      Hand is a fold pre. We want our hands to have multiple factors in them. Best hands are suited connected and have high card strength. This hand just has 1 parameter thats is its nut suit and add to the fact that we are OOP we cant extract value even if we have a flush. So its a fold pre

      I Would not try to thin the field mutiway with TPTK in omaha. Multiway bluffs just dont work often enough esp mutiway
