      BTN: $9.90 (99 bb)
      SB: $19.50 (195 bb)
      BB: $5.81 (58.1 bb)
      UTG+1: $2.98 (29.8 bb)
      Hero (UTG+2): $18.82 (188.2 bb)
      MP1: $5.58 (55.8 bb)
      MP2: $9.15 (91.5 bb)
      MP3: $7.87 (78.7 bb)
      CO: $2.35 (23.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is UTG+2 with K A
      UTG+1 calls $0.10, Hero raises to $0.30, 3 folds, CO calls $0.30, BTN calls $0.30, 2 folds, UTG+1 calls $0.20

      Flop: ($1.35) 7 4 A (4 players)
      UTG+1 bets $0.30, Hero raises to $0.90, CO folds, BTN raises to $1.50, UTG+1 calls $1.20, Hero folds

      Turn: ($5.25) K (2 players)
      UTG+1 bets $1.18 and is all-in, BTN calls $1.18

      River: ($7.61) 9 (2 players, 1 is all-in)

      $7.61 pot ($0.34 rake)
      Final Board: 7 4 A K 9
      BTN showed A J and won $7.27 ($4.29 net)
      UTG+1 showed 7 8 and lost (-$2.98 net)

      I think I was put in a weird spot here. I did not think through this hand properly and thus make a nitty fold.Villian on button could be trying to isolate the fish and with my hand, I should be beating most of villain range there.What do you think?

      Hey TheKing7,

      Would probably raise a little larger prefop, your hand is strong enough to get all-in vs UTG+1 limper.

      Flop raise is ok, you definitely don't want it larger on this dry texture.

      I don't blame you for folding here. I think BTN has played his hand very badly and is over-repping his hand. You get a great price though so calling wouldn't be that bad, although I don't see much point in ever re-raising on such a dry texture.
