      Known players:
      CO:
      $2.79
      BU:
      $4.82
      SB:
      $1.05
      BB:

      MP2:
      $2.00
      MP3 (Hero):
      $4.53


      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with A, 2.
      2 folds, MP1 calls $0.02, MP2 folds, Hero calls $0.02, CO calls $0.02, BU folds, SB calls $0.01, BB checks.

      Flop: ($0.1) Q, T, 8 (5 players)
      SB checks, BB checks, MP1 bets $0.10, Hero raises to $0.30, CO folds, SB folds, BB folds, MP1 calls $0.20.

      Turn: ($0.7) 3 (2 players)
      MP1 checks, Hero bets $0.52, MP1 calls $0.52.

      River: ($1.74) K (2 players)
      MP1 raises to $0.94(All-In), Hero folds, MP1 gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $1.74.

      The villain's stats: 49/8/1.5/1.5/45/121 [VPIP/PFR/AF/WTS/Hands]

      I've tried to isolate the villain on Flop with FD nut. Did I take to much aggression like in this spot to a Calling Station like him? I meant to take as a semi-bluff and try to have him pay me off if I complete my FD. Was it right to play that way with a loose and passive player?

      Hello anhvusa,

      Why do you raise in multiway pot? Rather just Call and might even invite some weaker FDs too into the pot. Not really worth to raise here. Kinda overplayed your hand. :(

      Best Regards.
