      Players mostly have VPIP/PFR/3B like 67/3/0

      Cake Poker, $0.05/$0.10 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 9 Players

      BTN: $4.50 (45 bb)

      MP3: $10.44 (104.4 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with 3 A
      BTN posts BB OOP, 3 folds, MP2 calls $0.10, MP3 calls $0.10, CO folds, BTN checks, SB completes, Hero checks

      Flop: ($0.50) 5 J 4 (5 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks, MP2 bets $0.10, MP3 calls $0.10, BTN raises to $0.90, SB raises to $1.70, 3 folds, BTN raises to $4.40 and is all-in, SB calls $0.12 and is all-in

      Turn: ($4.34) A (2 players, 2 are all-in)
      River: ($4.34) 2 (2 players, 2 are all-in)

      Results:
      $4.34 pot ($0.28 rake)
      Final Board: 5 J 4 A 2
      BTN showed 8 J and won $4.06 ($2.14 net)
      SB showed 9 4 and lost (-$1.92 net)
      Hero mucked 3 A and lost (-$0.10 net)
      MP2 mucked and lost (-$0.20 net)
      MP3 mucked and lost (-$0.20 net)


      It's like they shove every pair they hit.

      Hello,

      What exactly concerns you here?
      You are given a free play with a decent hand, so taking it is fine. Raising would be bad since we are most likely to get called a lot.

      On the flop with just a gutshot check/folding is by far the best thing we can do here after so much action.

      Best,
      Plamen

      Actually hand is not for evaluation, its just an example how stupid they play, and my Q is how to exploit his game eventually to take their money. Because against such players you cant play somewhat regular poker (like cbeting, bluffing).

      Maybe I should post it under different forum section, not evaluation.
