It doesn't really matter how everyone got to the flop as you are not in a good position regardless. For instance, if a bunch of people limped in, the odds of someone pairing up that rainbow, holding an ace with a rag, or holding a small pocket pair are fairly high. So at least one player has you beat and probably feels pretty good about his hand.
If, on the other hand, someone got to the flop showing strength, i.e. AK, AQ, AJ, medium pocket pairs, etc., they also have you beat and feel pretty confident as well.
So, getting in there with such a strange hand leaves you vulnerable and the chances of getting someone out with a raise seem low.
That's at least my opinion of it. I could be wrong since I typically play tight. But I think K9 trouble is exactly why I play tight!
