$30 home game tournament, $20 rebuys, $20 add on. About 5 minutes after the break when all rebuys end and we just did our add ons.
My stack is 23,100 and blinds are 200/400
UTG calls 400, UTG +2 calls (ME with 34 spaded), UTG + 4 calls, Small Blind calls, BB Checks
K 6 5
(CHECK ALL AROUND)
(UTG +4 bets 1500, BB Calls, I call)
BB checks, I check, UTG +4 bets 3k, BB Calls, Then I min raise to 6K since I put both of them on three sixes and felt none of them had a boat. UTG +4 Folds to the min raise but the BB re raises 13k more. I was thinking WTF!?!!??!?!!?! I thought he was trying to either make a play on me or re raising with hit three sixes. I thought BB would have re raised the initial 3k bet on the river if he had the full house but he just called. I called the 13k more and he rolled over K6
Weirdest hand I have ever been apart in. I was so pissed off. I'm still pissed I let myself into that situation. I was left with 2200 and ended up going all in 2 hands later with KQ and losing. Any advice?

Yeah but if you always play the nuts ur opponents will put u on that and you will never get paid off. But in this situation since it was after the break and add ons I should have just folded pre flop then this situation wouldn't have presented itself. Or I could have just called the 3k initial bet to play it safe. I'm just pissed cuz I didnt cash. I cashed there 3 times in a row with $60, $280, $190 and now I was first to get KOED.

34s in that spot isn't a terrible limp if UTG limps ahead of you. Just gotta be able to play post flop. Your river play was where you went wrong. You should almost always be leading those hands from your position. You're going to get called by soooooo many worse hands that will pay you off. I hate min raising in any situation post flop, and here is no exception. Especially in a multi way, if neither player has you beat you get another 6k, that's it. A raise to say 10k+ will give you more than enough value to show a profit against someone shoving with a hand that beats you, considering that won't happen often enough for raising more to be a losing play.
•you should lead the river •you should raise more •not that hard to see full house combinations considering the limped pot
•if you are to raise the river, it's putting you in such an awkward position to call another raise

First mistake: Playing 34s from that position. Second mistake: Calling the bet on the turn, about 16% chance of hitting, call costs 45% of pot, to low pot odds to call. Third mistake: Calling the re-raise on the river, I thought K6 or 65 after the turn, possibly A6, after river, full house was the only option really.

If you're gonna play the hand (which you should not in this position, but you CAN decide to mix it up once in a while), then raise it, and don't check the flop when you hit an open hander Stay in control, stay in position. Basically, don't be a donk.
Btw, why are the rebuys 20$ and the BI 30$? Doesn't make sense.

Hello, Fold pre-flop without even a second tought. That's not a hand to play. Yeah you might win sometimes, but i don't know... the chances to win are pretty low... so fold. From that position, you can't play it, much more if you just call / check.
