First big mistake is your bet size pre-flop. Standard size against one limper is 4x, but there is 2 limpers more so you should add 2 x more and then again add 1x for being out of position, making it 4x+2 x+1x = 7x = 0.14.

But this is not the whole truth, because there are so many people in the pot you are destined to get calls to even higher bets, like 0.24$. Try to aim a number which will keep one villain in and folds others. ~10% of the eff stack migth be good size?!? <- Comments on this?

Second mistake is to bet second pair (in general) and now specifically against multiple opponents OTF.

Third mistake is bet OTT and the sizing tell is ridiculous.

Good fold.

You will get a note "OTT weak = weak, folds to raise" with this play.

Raise bigger pre, check the flop, planning to fold to anything over half pot.
