      NL Holdem $0.04(BB) Replayer
      SB ($3.89)
      BB ($1.38)
      UTG ($7.42)
      UTG+1 ($3.48)
      CO ($1.67)
      Hero ($4.08)

      Dealt to Hero 8:diamond: 8:heart:

      UTG calls $0.04, fold, CO raises to $0.20, Hero raises to $0.68, fold, BB calls $0.64, UTG calls $0.64, CO calls $0.48

      FLOP ($2.74) 9:heart: 7:heart: 5:diamond:

      BB checks, UTG bets $6.74 (AI), CO folds, Hero folds, BB calls $0.66

      TURN ($4.06) 9:heart: 7:heart: 5:diamond: 2:spade:

      RIVER ($4.06) 9:heart: 7:heart: 5:diamond: 2:spade: T:heart:

      CO: 61/32/1.3
      UTG is 63/23/2.5

      3bet preflop because CO has wide raising range so this is for value.

      Flop is ugly - UTG is agressive, but I guess I am often ahead, so probably this is a call with pair + gutshot

      I think I'd call preflop and try and see a flop, mostly because UTG is so loose he'll for sure call the raise and he might even coldcall the 3-bet, getting us into a 3-way flop with 88, which will be gross. The BB is shortstacked as well, which is no indication that he'll stick around in itself, but it's more likely he creates problem then if he was a random reg.

      I don't hate 3-betting and I'd certainly do that if UTG looked a little less crazy, I think it's highly +ev in that case.

      As played when BB coldcalls and UTG overcalls really, that's not at all the situation we got involved for and we can't discount any of them having TT+ either, so it's a really crappy spot on the flop. I'd fold as well.

      Hope it helps.
