      Yes. KQo is not the kind of hand you want to see multiway flops with. It's likely a marginal raise from your position, but BU already declared he's bad and he put extra dead money in the pot, so raising it up there is fine.

      As played i'd probably stab at that pot, it's really the kind of flop that hits nobody and we have 2 overs plus backdoor flush/straight draws, it's plenty good enough.

      As played on the turn you have nothing and you're sandwiched between two players, even if you get good odds your hand is going nowhere. If you feel like you could be good on that turn, then like i said just go ahead and stab at flop in the first place.

      As played same on the river, don't get in the habit of getting sucked in by pot odds when your hand just has no value.

      Hope it helps.
