      MP+1: 100 BB
      CO: 109.6 BB
      BTN: 117.6 BB
      SB: 179.8 BB
      BB: 99.4 BB
      UTG: 100 BB
      UTG+1: 123.2 BB
      UTG+2: 65 BB
      Hero (MP): 101.8 BB

      SB posts SB 0.4 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.4 BB) Hero has T:heart: T:diamond:

      fold, fold, UTG+2 calls 1 BB, Hero raises to 4 BB, fold, fold, fold, SB calls 3.6 BB, BB calls 3 BB, UTG+2 calls 3 BB

      Flop: (16 BB, 4 players) 4:heart: 8:diamond: 3:diamond:
      SB checks, BB checks, UTG+2 bets 5 BB, Hero raises to 14 BB, SB calls 14 BB, fold, UTG+2 calls 9 BB

      I have to raise passive fish vs this draw heavy broad.

      Turn: (58 BB, 3 players) 3:club:
      SB checks, UTG+2 bets 4 BB, Hero raises to 30 BB, fold, UTG+2 raises to 47 BB and is all-in, Hero calls 17 BB

      Turn card doesn't change much. I'm betting vs fish if Big Blind raises I'm folding.

      River: (152 BB, 2 players) 5:club:

      UTG+2 shows 4:club: 4:diamond: (Full House, Fours full of Threes) (Pre 19%, Flop 87%, Turn 95%)
      Hero shows T:heart: T:diamond: (Two Pair, Tens and Threes) (Pre 81%, Flop 13%, Turn 5%)
      UTG+2 wins 145.6 BB

      Is there any way I don't go broke considering he is a passive fish?

      I agree with your line in general, but I think your bet size is way too big. You should note that the stack:pot ratio is much lower than usual.

      A typical heads-up single-raised pot will be 6-7bb. Over here, it's a 4way pot and you iso-raised to 4bb, so the pot is 16bb which means that the size of the pot on the flop is ~>twice as large as before. The stack pot ratio is similar to that of a 3b pot, and as such you should be using half pot bets instead. Vs that 5bb lead, I think you can just minraise it to 10bb, and maybe you can bet 40% pot on the Turn instead so that you are not committed into calling a raise if SB ships over your turnbet.

      I"m not folding the fish when he can have all sorts of worse top pairs.
