Hello all. This is my first post in this forum.

UTG (~$130) - limps almost every hand and in the short time I have been there, he's dropped ~$400. Has been aggressive post flop and have seen him shove with a FD and overs and lose. He also pushes TP with weak kickers like it's the nuts. He does fold some hands he limped in with if raised unless there is multiway action. He also claimed that he folded a Q high flush on the river when he was check raised by the Indian guy (also in this hand). Hero has been isolating him a lot since he got to the table.

UTG+1 ($550)- Hero is Asian, mid 30s. I have been playing solid but have been opening wide in position since I had UTG to my immediate right. My image is probably neutral and it's probably my fourth orbit on the table coming from a broken 2/5 game. I haven't shown down any hands.

MP+2 (covers the whole table) - Indian, around 30s-40s. He has been folding a lot. He has called my raises twice since I got there and folded to my cbets.

HJ ($150) - black, around 40s-50s. A very tight player who also came from the broken 2/5 game. I've played with him a ton and know his game. He never slow plays, especially on wet boards. If he raises, you know he has it.

Hero has AsQc

UTG limps, Hero raises to $12, MP+2, HJ, and UTG calls.

flop ($51)
Qh7h5s
UTG checks, Hero bets $40, MP+2 and HJ calls, UTG raises all in for about $80 more. Hero?

I'm not worried about HJ because I'm sure he would raise if he had a big hand. UTG has been aggressive but is on the short stack and has been losing so I feel it's possible that he might tilt shove with a draw or a worse TP. The Indian guy is who I am most concerned about but would he slow play a monster on this wet board.

    Welcome! I think this is a raise/fold. Super flush/straight draw-heavy board, so lots of hands the players behind could be calling with. Based on your UTG read, you have his range beat. If you raise to $200, you can fold to the big stack if he shoves a slowplayed set, but in most cases he folds.

    Raise back to 160ish.

    There is so much money in the pot and the stack sizes are such that there's no need to worry about UTG and HJ, as you said.

    MP+2's range contains so much more weak hands than hands which beat you that you absolutely must get more money in the pot. He might fold most of his range to a backraise, but that's not a problem since the pot is pretty large already. You want to deny him the odds to flatcall with a draw, so raise.
    If he really comes over the top, you can probably fold (your line looks insanely strong, so he won't reraise light here like ever), but this scenario is just so few and far between that there's no need to be afraid of it.

    Where are you playing 100 500? Home game or casino? If casino would love to know which one assuming its east coast. I would love that structure.

    And how are u finding revel vs. Borgata? Borgata is running so many more games than revel I wouldn't have even thought to go to revel on an ac run.

    Welcome Reign-
    I think Shmed has the most optimal line here in this situation....if you raise for anything shy of $200, then you really price in opponents who have strong draws in their ranges. This is also foldable here, since less than half the stack would be in play. As tight as the other villains are, for them to continue I believe their hand strength would be fairly strong in this spot.
    BTW, that structure is sweet and is nearly unheard of anywhere else!

    Borgata is definitely king in AC. However, Revel gives free weekend rooms to anyone who plays 10hrs on a weekend and 8 on a weekday. They are aggressively promoting the room.
