      I'm not sure it's worth it calling K9s pre flop even with 4 limpers. But as played, nice hand.

      It's too risky to lead out betting flop in a 6-way pot with such a low kicker, and on river you are most likely ahead with your 2 pair, so push.

      Hey RockEye,

      preflop is ok to limp K9s after 4 limpers.

      On the flop it's a bit marginal, because your hand doesn't have a lot of drawing potential and you also cannot expect your TP9K to be good in 6-way pot. But given so great odds I would call as well and evaluate turn. ...for example if :club: comes on the turn then your drawing potential to river increases a lot.

      Checking turn is good.

      On the river you hit 2-pair and want to get paid, so betting is correct, but I would bet somewhat smaller, ~2$ because on the river you don't need to protect and people will be less likely to call big bets.

      Regards,
