I'd say a good fold.

If the action was folded or limped round to me I'd go in with a raise but not with that much action in front of me. KQo does not play that well with 3 or more opponents.

This is an easy fold.

You have 23BB+, and a hand which could be in trouble.
Not only was there an all in, but there was a call of the all in.

If you try a squeeze on the 9k caller, you are not likely to get away with it, since you have barely 1k more than the shover. That means any squeeze try is going to be laying around 4 to 1 to that big stack to call.

You are behind any rag ace, so unless you were very short here (under 10BB at least, and maybe even as low as 5BB), there is no need to put your tourney life at risk.

Good fold.

With a shove and a call, you're basically guaranteed that you have the worst hand of the 3 in almost every instance. You want to be putting your chips in when you're ahead, not behind, so good fold.
