Say the flop is AK7 rainbow? What will you do now? Even if you make a flush if the A isn't on the board you may not be in the lead.

Part of the problem is your 5 those times its a K high board you are losing to someone with a K and a better kicker.

If you had pot odds to call why did you not call? (you only have odds to call if your or opponent is all in.)

What was your reason to raise K 5 suited preflop?
Was it to steal or do you think you have a quality hand?
I hope it was to steal.
Very speculative hand with a lot of bad draws to it.
Like the one that happened to you.
What did you think your opponents called you with?

Fold pre. There aren't enough people in the hand to give the really good pot odds you need to go chasing a monster hand. You're more likely to hit a one pair or non-nut draw. You'll typically win a small pot with a pair of kings... or lose a big one to a better king or the nut flush.
Playing the PSO league games, it's better to play super-tight. You earn points by playing like a rock, not by gambling it up with marginal hands.
