fold preflop I'd say, flop is fine. fold turn, it's not worth calling with the SB yet to act, chances are huge at least UTG+1 has a king and the pot isn't big enough to check it out with only two outs.

I think pf is fine, easier to do with 99, but ok. you are getting almost 3-1 which is my cutoff for coldcalling PP's, and cold calling encourages cold-calling. Flop is good, have to bet. i think the turn is such an easy fold. UTG+1 posted dead in a crappy position, he obviously does not care, so he doesnt care that you bet on the flop. he just sees that he now has a pair of kings and bets. time to fold.

Pre-flop is borderline, I fold this generally unless I can expect more ColdCallers behind or very loose blinds. Flop is good, I'd fold the turn. You're very slightly ahead or way behind. You can't call down with 2 people to act behind you and I don't think you're ahead often enough to warrant raising.
