flopped straight, how to play it?

Everyone at the table was playing basic straight forward tight aggressive and no one was getting out of line.

I called a bet of 10 dollars and was in middle position with around 650 dollars in a 1/2 dollar live cash game and I had K6o.

6 others called and the the flop was TJQ rainbow. I had the nuts and there was roughly 60 bucks in the pot so I bet 30 bucks and 2 called after me

Turn was a 4 and I bet around 60 dollars and one guy called and he had around 375 dollars or about 2/3 of my stack.

River was the King. No flush, no pair and I had the second nuts and I bet 30 just in case he had a ace and he raised to 100 and I called.

What would be the best way to play this hand? I think I should of went all in on the turn? Any answers would be most appreciated and thanks.

Call pre with K6o in MP is atrocious.

Hero had K9o obviously.

K9o is not the nuts on the flop.

K9o is the second nuts on the river....but an easy second-best hand in 1/2 live.

Bet more in flop and turn and the hand changes.

I didn't think anyone had AK so I assumed I had the nuts and was looking to trap.

You were right I had k9o, how should have played it?

Fold pre.

Imagine you don't know the flop. Do you feel good when 6 people are in a pot with you with you holding K9o ? The answer to that is basically the answer to how you should be playing this hand.

PS. you classified the table as "tight aggressive". Do you feel good holding K9o against 6 other "tight" players?

Preflop fold. K9o is better for trapping yourself. As played bet flop a little bigger. Turn bet is fine. Give up on river. Check and fold to any substantial bet.

These 2 paragraphs don't add up. You are not playing tight aggressive or straight forward and you are getting out of line. Call me in MP with K9o is terrible.

You don't have the nuts.

Bet more I guess but no biggie.

Bet more, like $80 to $100.

Why did you bet 'in case he had an ace'? This line makes no sense.

Just x river, no point in betting since nothing worse calls and you can't call a raise.

As played fold.

Don't go all in on the turn.

Next time around it would help to include some reads on the other players and stack sizes and positions.

Above info is based on not having any reads beyond the fact that people are playing tight aggressive but your post makes clear that's not the case anyway.
