3X BB + 1 BB for every limper = .90......not .60 (you calculated the 1 BB for every limper, but not the extra 3X the BB.

Our goal here is to make as many fold as possible, hopefully still getting a caller or two. If no one calls, we still don't mind because there's a lot of money in the pot. A call would be about the worst thing possible you could do because even if you flop TPTK, with 6 limpers there's no way you can assume you're ahead. I'd make it 90 cents here.
Thank you for actually explaining to me what I should do, and why. Nothing I hate more than people telling me to raise/fold/call without giving me any reasoning or explanation whatsoever.
Here is how the rest of the hand played out if you wanted to know.

*** RIVER *** [2c 7s As Kh] 5♥

Weeeeee. I am happy with my post-flop play, however, do you have any suggestions/problems?
