      Wondered a lot about this hand.

      Only 16 hands on villain is no stats really.

      Firstly - too loose an open raise?

      As played? I thought about raising the river, get him off his Jx and A high hands that he might be the river with a paired board.

      If villain has a 6 I don't understand why he would barrel on that turn, so raising on river quite often might get a better hand to fold?

      Preflop: I think it's fine to raise this. I'm probably opening about 15% of hands from UTG as a default strategy and 78s falls in the top 15%.

      Flop: The flop is dry and you have backdoor draws to the flush and straight. Even though it's 3-way I think you should c-bet here and barrel all the good turns.

      River: Hmm I don't think you'll get that much credit for a 6 so I'll just fold.
