      UTG+1 - UTG+1 ($5.53) vpip 34 prf 21 agg% 75 # 29
      MP - MP ($7.15)

      SB - SB ($8.59)
      BB - Hero ($14.50)

      Preflop: ($0.15, 7 players) Hero is BB with A:spade: J:club:
      1 fold, UTG+1 raises to $0.20, 2 folds, BTN calls $0.20, 1 fold, Hero raises to $0.80, UTG+1 calls $0.60, BTN calls $0.60

      I tried to isolate UTG1, since he was a loose raiser. The pre-flop strategy was raise-fold, and this way I would be able to place a cbet on flop.

      Flop: 8:club: A:diamond: J:diamond: ($2.45, 3 players)
      Hero bets $1.70, UTG+1 raises to $3.40, BTN raises to $11.58 (all-in), 1 fold, UTG+1 calls $1.33 (all-in), Uncalled bet of $6.85 returned to BTN

      If the BTN hadn't go all-in, I would have shoved against UTG1. But I could only put BTN on 88 or JJ.

      Turn: 9:club: ($13.61, 2 players, 1 all-in)

      River: T:club: ($13.61, 2 players, 1 all-in)

      Hi MrBeast,

      Preflop: looks fine for thin value

      Postflop: BTN looks really aggro in 237 hands and also somewhat fishy (22/11).

      That tells me he can have A8 or even other Ax like AQ type hands, and maybe some draws. Given that sets are only 4 combinations I can't see how we can fold (unless he's a huge nit).
