      I think that villain raised to protect his made hand, because a) it was a donk bet; b) it is multiway. I had two options: a) call and re-evaluate on turn; b) 3bet here and play for stacks. The latter would have scared away hands like AK, but at the same time it is super drawy, so I pick 3bet.
      Villain ships. I lose only to KK, vs the rest (even if it's JhTh) I am much ahead.

      P.S. Did villain play this hand right by 4bet allin with his hand?

      Hello faronel,

      Whatever it is I don't really see any reason why we should give SB good odds to Call, therefore just 3bet it and get it in.

      About UTG play to go all-in with just nutFD, especially vs known reg as long I would assuming that he also had on you the same amount of hands is very bad. You as hero are usually representing mainly PPs which call vs UTG range like that and your range will be mainly sets which 3bet.

      Even if you had AK in your range:

      Board: 9:diamond: K:heart: 8:heart:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      UTG    67.48%  67.48%   0.00% { 99-88, AKs, AKo }
      UTG+1  32.52%  32.52%   0.00% { AhQh }

      he still doesn't get the equity while needed is ~38% if we exclude the rake.

      Best Regards.
