      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy.com Elephant 0.105 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with A:heart: , J:spade:
      UTG2 calls $0,02, 2 folds, Hero raises to $0,10, CO folds, BU calls $0,10, SB calls $0,09, BB calls $0,08, UTG2 calls $0,08.

      Flop: ($0,50) Q:diamond: , J:diamond: , 8:club: (5 players)
      SB checks, BB checks, UTG2 checks, Hero checks, BU checks.

      Turn: ($0,50) J:club: (5 players)
      SB checks, BB bets $0,56, UTG2 raises to $1,12, 3 folds, BB calls $0,56.

      River: ($2,74) 4:spade: (2 players)
      BB checks, UTG2 checks.

      Final Pot: $2,74

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      UTG2 shows two-pair, jacks and tens (Th Ts)
      BB shows (9h 8d)

      UTG2 wins with two-pair, jacks and tens (Th Ts)

      When two players show an interest in the pot on the turn should I go all-in with trips and hope for the best? Or should I get out of the way and wait for a better spot?

      Thanks in advance,
      -Ray

      Hello DesertStingray,

      Well, actually we could even consider betting the flop for protection and free card. Although your play is also fine but that's true that very often we have to consider folding on turn, not much you can do there. :( Just don't be result oriented.

      Best Regards.
