      I think BB and even MP3 range is tight enough to have a lot of Ax in them, so I may fold turn. It looks really inviting to call such a small bet and odds are good, but I think you are most often really thin here. And even if you call turn and hope to see your K, I would still fold this river. Do you see many worse hands 10/9 may bet? I don't.

      It's standard to cbet A-high flop with KK but after getting 2 callers you should go in c/f mode regardless of the bet sizes without specific reads on opponents.

      Agreed, 3-way it's just too likely we're 2-outing and sticking around leaking money is one of the biggest leaks of microstakes players. It's fine to stick around with a nutted gutshot on a non-paired board if you get incredible odds, but when you don't even know if you have any outs most of the time it's best to cut your losses, especially 3-way sandwiched between what looks like two tight/bad players.

      Hope it helps.
