      When your table is passive, you don't limp, you isolate and attack their limps. I guarantee you this will make you money.

      As played i will fold river. UTG has combos of 55, 44, A5, A4, A9, better flushes in his range and his bet sizing is pretty convincing that he has a strong hand.

      Hi Zach,

      Preflop: I would only limp here if BTN/SB/BB are all fish and would call us if we raised (or 2 of 3 are). We can gain initiative and isolate one of them.

      Postflop: Since he pot into 4 people he is on a very strong hand so once that turn comes and he underbets he is generally trying to keep you in so simply fold the turn (or as played the riveR).
