      Unknown (generally weak passive, loose [PKR]) players

      I've lately found only playing ABSOLUTE premium (AQ+, JJ+) hands is the only way to profit from the EXTREMELY loose passive PKR player pool.

      Standard until I get raised. Then I'm scared of sets and AQ, however I believe there are a lot of Aces playing, some Queens and pocket pairs even down to 88 some times.

      Obvious raise/shove?

      how aggressive is button? how does he play his top pairs and flush draws multiway?

      usually raising into UTG 3way on the flop is an extremely strong move and indicates 2p set or better so i would fold this. However i have seen people raise their toppair weak kicker and flush draws and play it like the nuts but this is the rarity. If villain has a very high aggression on flop I think i would raise over and get it in, however if he is passive, I would fold TPTK here to the raise.
