Hero (covers) - The game is loose passive with most hands going 4-7-way to the flop. Hero's image is winning and one of the more aggressive players at the table.
UTG2 ($500) - Got it in earlier for several hundred preflop against Hero's aces and lost. Older recreational player who loves to talk and be in the action. Once he likes his hand, he is going strong with it. Mostly passive preflop unless dealt a premium
SB ($130) - Stuck, losing, and getting in bad mostly by calling rather than driving action.
Preflop: Hero dealt KK88hh in BB. Limps around for $5. 6way action to flop.
Flop ($30) 8c 4h 3h. UTG2 pots $30, button, SB, and Hero call.
I have the current nuts on top with a FD, but see not reason to push the action further with low hands potentially freerolling.
Turn ($150) 8c 4h 3h 9s. Checked to UTG2 who pots again $150, button folds, SB call ai for last $125. Hero calls.
Any merit to folding here knowing that UTG2 almost certainly has a made low with at least free-roll outs to a wheel and will ship his last $340 on most rivers? SB could have anything. I decided to call here getting almost 3:1, planning to check/fold wheel rivers and evaluate others. But I hated putting in 150 + another likely 340 to chase half of 275. If the SB did add his money, I think this becomes a fold heads up, right?
River ($575) 8c 4h 3h 9s Tc. Hero checks. UTG2 ships $340. Hero?
