      CO: $11.58 (VPIP: 10.89, PFR: 9.27, 3Bet Preflop: 4.81, Hands: 251)
      BTN: $11.08 (VPIP: 15.10, PFR: 10.40, 3Bet Preflop: 5.59, Hands: 407)
      SB: $12.69 (VPIP: 11.48, PFR: 8.20, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 185)
      BB: $31.72 (VPIP: 19.58, PFR: 10.49, 3Bet Preflop: 5.93, Hands: 292)
      UTG: $33.03 (VPIP: 39.61, PFR: 25.43, 3Bet Preflop: 1.43, Hands: 420)
      UTG+1: $23.55 (VPIP: 12.23, PFR: 6.90, 3Bet Preflop: 2.09, Hands: 646)
      MP: $32.24 (VPIP: 15.71, PFR: 10.47, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 195)
      Hero (MP+1): $62.41

      SB posts SB $0.10, BB posts BB $0.25

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.35) Hero has 3:spade: 3:diamond:

      UTG raises to $0.50, fold, fold, Hero calls $0.50, fold, BTN calls $0.50, fold, BB calls $0.25

      Villain is a bit of a maniac. He open-min-raised UTG, so I simply bet with a good chance to hit a set. The rest of the table is very tight, so if they raise they likely have a strong hand and unless there are good odds with the original UTG in the hand, I'd fold out. But with the villain, there are good implied odds.

      Flop: ($2.10, 4 players) A:heart: 4:spade: 5:diamond: BB checks, UTG checks, Hero bets $1.05, BTN calls $1.05, fold, UTG calls $1.05

      Being checked into, with only one to act behind me I put out a stab at the pot. I expect non-A hands to fold, and with only one to act behind I have a chance to take the pot down.

      Turn%s: ($5.25, 3 players) 3:club: UTG checks, Hero bets $3.00, fold, UTG calls $3.00

      The turn gives me a set, and I don't see many hands that could have a 2 in it. The button could very well have a 67s, but this is a small amount of his range compared to AX hands and higher pocket pairs. I also think there is a good chance the villain is going to call and I want to try to get more money in the pot as I am very far ahead of his range.

      River%s: ($11.25, 2 players) 9:diamond: UTG bets $11.25, Hero calls $11.25

      UTG bets pot on the river and I decide to call. He could have a set himself or even the straight. I think this was a bit weak as against his range he could easily have AK or A9 and be betting for what he thinks is 'value' so I don't just check behind. With these hands he will probably still call down my raise.

      Flop: If it were 3way I would bet. But in a 4way pot the chances of someone having an Ace is really high IMO.

      Turn: I don't think you have 3 streets of value here. You mostly lose to A2s/67s now, as well as 44/55. UTG seems a little bad though which means 2 things

      1. He has more 2X than the average player
      2. He will be likelier to call down lighter.

      So I suppose betting Turn with intention of half potting river is reasonable.

      River: River sucks especially vs his half pot bet but I think calling here is fine.
