      I think you played it fine, maybe bigger turn bet, but otherwise OK.
      Ofcourse this river raise looks nasty, but you cant fold here. I have just seen so much random stuff in these situations, that a call is profitable.

      Hey!

      You can bet bigger flop and turn as kosmonaut suggested. I'd just shove river instead of making a small bet.

      I'm not afraid that MP3 has a bigger hand because he'd have raised it already. And MP2 seems like a loose player who will call any A here. So Just ship it as you're probably still good ;-)

      However, once you made a small bet, I'd fold to his shove, because I believe he has us beat 100% =) Few players will turn a busted FD into a bluff here. I mean you 3barreled into 3 players. Do they really expect to bluff you out of a hand that you 3barreled into 2 players?
      And this guy seems like the passive guy who likes to go to the showdown, instead of the bluff guy.

      So I like mucking river. I expect him to have aces up here a lot
