Guessing I shouldn't have playerd this out of position.
Opened UTG with KJo and villian_8 called and villian_9 3bet with a less than raise. I call and villian 8 called.

villian_8 stats vp50/pf0/af1.0
villian_9 stats VP62/PF33/AF0.5

Flop came 8h Kc Jc giving me top 2 pair but adding a flush draw to the board, I bet 871 villian_8 folds and villian_9 calls.

turn is 10s now adding straight draw to board. I bet 1531 and villia_9 calls all in for 1,319.

Villian turns pocket jacks for the set.

Some advice on whether I should have folded this earlier, I suppose the key points are whether I should have played KJ UTG and whether I should have called the 3bet, although the 3bet was so low I felt I had good odds.

KJ is way too weak of a hand to be opening from UTG... muck preflop. I'll open KK or AK.. that's it for kings from UTG as the others are too weak.
