      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with 8, 7.
      UTG1 folds, UTG2 calls $0.02, 2 folds, Hero calls $0.02, CO calls $0.02, BU folds, SB calls $0.01, BB checks.

      Flop: ($0.1) 4, 6, 3 (5 players)
      SB bets $0.05, BB folds, UTG2 calls $0.05, Hero calls $0.05, CO folds.

      Turn: ($0.25) 5 (3 players)
      SB bets $0.12, UTG2 calls $0.12, Hero raises to $0.54, SB folds, UTG2 raises to $0.96, Hero raises to $1.38, UTG2 calls $0.70, Hero calls $0.28.

      River: ($3.69) A (2 players)


      Final Pot: $3.69.

      I feel, I've played it correctly till "Hero raises to $0.54". I should have protected my hand against draws. I think, after the re-reaise by UTG2 fold was better decision. Am I right? What was correct line here?

      Hello Dasisdas86,

      Flop: Well, most likely with such a hand I would even raise right on the flop vs the small Bet.

      As played
      Turn: Do you think a lot worse hands are capable of calling if you raise? And what do you think you beat after the opponent picks such a line on such a board? Most likely while it's a freeplay pot you are against a better flush here + multiway pot.

      Best Regards.

      When I played it, I thought he might hit his set. But now I see I've made a mistake. 4 opponents saw the flop, one of them might easily have better flush. But still, UTG2's hand was very surprising for me. He limped Ad, Kd from that position.
      So, As I guess, I had to give up when he reraised on the turn. Am I right?

      Yep, most likely that would be my play there. :( Hard and difficult but it's still just a freeplay pot. What I would have done is that I would just Call the turn cause not many worse hands will call vs your raise and with that you take pot control.
