      SB: $2.64 (26.4 bb)
      BB: $23.53 (235.3 bb)
      MP1: $22.29 (222.9 bb)
      MP2: $6.13 (61.3 bb)
      MP3: $10.82 (108.2 bb)
      CO: $6.65 (66.5 bb)
      Hero (BTN): $3.46 (34.6 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with 8 A
      MP1 calls $0.10, MP2 folds, MP3 raises to $0.45, CO folds, Hero raises to $1.50, 2 folds, MP1 calls $1.40, MP3 calls $1.05

      Flop: ($4.65) 7 2 2 (3 players)
      MP1 bets $3.48, MP3 calls $3.48, Hero calls $1.96 and is all-in

      Turn: ($13.57) 8 (3 players, 1 is all-in)
      MP1 checks, MP3 checks

      River: ($13.57) 3 (3 players, 1 is all-in)
      MP1 checks, MP3 checks

      Results: $13.57 pot ($0.67 rake)
      Final Board: 7 2 2 8 3
      MP1 showed J J and won $12.90 ($7.92 net)
      MP3 showed 9 7 and lost (-$4.98 net)
      Hero showed 8 A and lost (-$3.46 net)

      UTG's stats is 20/0 so MP3 would raise a bit loose so I chose bet/fold on pre.

      And both called not reraise so I chose call shove because both wouldn't have 7 or 2 or over pair often and FD.

      What do you think?

      Hey Gonchan,

      ''Bet/fold'' is the wrong lingo here, one should use ''raise'' here. With stacksizes effective being 34.6bb, you cannot ever raise/fold here with A8s if you make such a sizing

      I think you should just shove preflop as you do not want the limper to suddenly call giving MP3 tremendous odds for his money. Also HU wise, A8s performs the best
