      UTG seems like a reg, unsure if a bad/good reg at the time.
      SB was labelled a Potential fish after a few odd plays, later I confirmed he is fish.

      Poker Stars, $0.02/$0.05 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players
      Poker Tools Powered By Holdem Manager - The Ultimate Poker Software Suite.

      SB: $5.41 (108.2 bb)
      BB: $5 (100 bb)
      UTG: $12.50 (250 bb)
      MP: $5 (100 bb)
      CO: $5.98 (119.6 bb)
      Hero (BTN): $7.76 (155.2 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with T Q
      UTG raises to $0.20, MP calls $0.20, CO folds, Hero calls $0.20, SB calls $0.18, BB folds

      Flop: ($0.85) 4 J K (4 players)
      SB bets $0.05, UTG calls $0.05, MP calls $0.05, Hero calls $0.05

      Turn: ($1.05) A (4 players)
      SB bets $0.05, UTG calls $0.05, MP calls $0.05, Hero raises to $1, SB raises to $2.05, UTG calls $2.00, MP folds, Hero raises to $7.51 and is all-in, 2 folds

      $7.25 pot ($0.30 rake)
      Final Board: 4 J K A
      SB mucked and lost (-$2.30 net)
      UTG mucked and lost (-$2.30 net)
      MP mucked and lost (-$0.30 net)
      Hero mucked T Q and won $6.95 ($4.65 net)

      UTG later confirmed in chat that he folded a Set, but what would the fish have?

      Hi Matt,

      Preflop: I don't like our call there for 4 BBs. Our hand plays poorly multiway and we don't flop anything that great. So we should simply fold or at most 3-bet bluff preflop.

      Postflop: There's no reason to really raise that flop 4 way with only 6 clean outs.

      On hte turn our play is good and our shove is perfect. I really doubt that UTG would fold a set there because his line doesn't make sense. Why would he call a min bet on the flop and then turn?

      And we shouldn't slowplay our hand given the lines that were taken and just try to get the money in.
