      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with K:spade: , K:club:
      2 folds, Hero raises to $1.00, MP3 calls $1.00, 2 folds, SB calls $0.90, BB folds.

      Flop: ($3.25) K:diamond: , J:club: , 9:spade: (3 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $2, MP3 folds, SB raises to $5.60, Hero calls $3.60.

      Turn: ($14.45) Q:spade: (2 players)
      SB bets $18.67 (All-In), Hero calls $18.67.

      River: ($51.79) 5:spade: (2 players)

      Final Pot: $51.79

      Please ignore that we should have gone all in on the flop, because that is just obvious and horribly misplayed :)

      I don't believe it is often a mistake to go broke with top set. The 4-board straight on this one though is concerning.

      I think after raising the flop villain probably more often has JJ, 99, less often QT, KJ. QT was the only hand I can figure that would have a ten in this spot much, as this villain is not ridiculous enough to attack cbet with JT, KT, 9T in this spot.

      Go broke on the turn?

      If you want to slowplay, then you're playing for stacks on any turn card, so it is fine for me.
      I'd likely would 3-bet flop to 9$ to make sure I get all the money in before Q or T would come.
