      I call preflop, the raise even though it was minimal came from EP and even though 3bet was also min I think calling and keeping MPs weaker range in is better than isolating him here...also not sure how the EP will react

      I hit TPTK on the flop and I call MP pot bet...he shows strenght since pot is multiway but I just cant fold this hand yet here...given his stats and everything, he might be on a weaker A or a draw...

      We see the turn 3way...after MP checks and the card is blank...I decide to bet for value here...weaker Ax will call, draws will call...2pairs or better are probably going to raise...so I think with this bet size I can get the stacks in easy on the river and give him a chance to call with his weaker range

      We see river heads up, since card is safe nothing left to do other than get his stack in as I have planned

      Hi Lavek,

      Preflop: We should look at 4-betting to isolate UTG+2. Our hand plays poorly in a multiway pot and given we still have 4 guys (plus pfr) left to act we will get called often.

      Postflop: As played your line is fine.
