      Table has been extremely loose and busy, mainly driven by UTG and BB (who was 5 buyins up at one point).

      I'll confess I was pretty lost, tbh.

      Rundown of challengers:

      UTG: 98/65/4.3 96 hands
      UTG +1: 26/5/1.8 176 hands
      CO: 20/0/1.5 98 hands
      BTN: 29/16/0.5 158 hands

      $0.05/$0.1 No Limit Holdem
      6 players
      Converted at weaktight.com

      Stacks:
      UTG ($90.10)
      UTG+1 ($10.40)
      CO ($15.45)
      BTN ($43.30)
      Hero (SB) ($34.40)
      BB ($10.00)

      Pre-flop: ($0.15, 6 players) Hero is SB J:diamond: J:spade:
      UTG raises to $0.40, UTG+1 calls $0.40, CO calls $0.40, BTN calls $0.40, Hero raises to $2.60, 1 fold, UTG calls $2.20, UTG+1 calls $2.20, CO folds, BTN calls $2.20

      Flop: 6:spade: Q:heart: T:heart: ($10.90, 4 players)
      Hero bets $7.80, 3 folds

      Final Pot: $18.70

      hi
      this is always a ugly spot where you cant do too much
      if you shove there arent worst hands to call you . i would probably try to get to showdown cheap and giveup to any action in such a multyway pot
      even if they are so lose its likely one of them has hit a better hand

      it was a very very ballsy move especially with the aggression of the players involved

      good thing it worked out or you would be in so much trouble

      Hi,

      Thanks for that. I was just wondering about preflop. With the stack sizes and utg always calling, should I 3bet more to try and dissuade the other two (who are mainly looking to hit something against utg) from coming along for the ride? Or could I even consider playing it passively so deep?

      I'd love to say it was ballsy, but it was more an attempt to stop utg from pot betting the flop and turn, which was her m.o. when checked to.

      I didn't really think it through properly, unfortunately. Having already used up my timebank didn't help, either.
