      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows a flush, queen high (9s 5s)
      SB shows a flush, king high (Ts Ks)

      SB wins with a flush, king high (Ts Ks)

      How can I play this hand better?, I know my 2x raise was bad, but part of me wanted to keep him in the game in case he didn't have the flush draw or misses it. I guess against 3 opponents someone must have the draw. On the other hand, He may have called any raise...

      As you've already pointed out you have to bet flop bigger, 2.75$ is what I would go for. You make a flush on the turn, no reason to think you're behind so I would also bet. Check behind river is also fine.
