      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.03) Hero has J:heart: A:heart:

      UTG raises to $0.04, fold, fold, fold, fold, CO calls $0.04, BTN calls $0.04, fold, Hero calls $0.02

      Flop: ($0.17, 4 players) 9:spade: K:club: 8:club:
      Hero checks, UTG bets $0.08, fold, fold, fold

      UTG wins $0.17

      I think with 2 callers already to the min raise calling or folding was the right option and not 3 betting. Then check folding the flop.

      Hard to say readless, if they're bad enough it might be very profitable to squeeze-isolate in that spot and get into a bloated pot against bad players with a hand that you're able to profitably bet bet shove top pairs with. I certainly don't mind just calling and seeing a 4-way flop with a hand that can make nutted straights/flushes either, it can never be bad.

      Easy check/fold on the flop, you don't have much to hope for.

      Hope it helps.
