      You should shutdown on the turn after getting two calls on the flop, imo.

      It looks like trips are less likely than Qx, but since you also have a Q they're actually the same on the flop. The only thing tipping the balance toward Qx more than Kx is that nobody raised you so far.

      I don't think betting the turn is a bad play tho it's close, villains can and will call you with stuff like AJ/QJ on the flop and on the turn as well, and if you get raised it's pretty clear you're toast. Wouldn't argue with anyone wanting to check it back either 3-way.

      On the river it's a fold really, they're not capable of betting Qx and they can't both be bluffing, so one of them has a K.

      Hope it helps.
