      Full Tilt No-Limit Hold'em, $0.10 BB (9 handed) Full Tilt Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.com (Format: 2+2 Forums)

      CO ($9.15)
      Button ($10)
      SB ($9.05)
      Hero ($2)
      UTG ($15.25)
      UTG+1 ($11.20)
      MP1 ($1.85)
      MP2 ($9.15)
      MP3 ($5.70)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with T:club: , J:heart: .
      UTG calls $0.10, 4 folds, CO calls $0.10, 1 fold, SB completes, Hero checks.

      Flop: ($0.40) K:diamond: , Q:club: , 5:club: (4 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks, UTG checks, CO checks.

      Turn: ($0.40) 9:club: (4 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.3, UTG folds, CO calls $0.30, SB raises to $1, Hero raises to $2.2 (All-In), CO folds, SB calls $0.90.

      River: ($4.50) 7:spade: (2 players, 1 all-in)

      Final Pot: $4.80

      Here I would like to know if I was correct to push after reraise on the turn, because the turn completed my straight draw, but also a flushdraw(which was villain unfortunately waiting in my case). Would be fold an option here? Or would maybe someone play this hand in another way? ...for me here fold wasn't an option because I think my straight should be good enough in most cases.

      With 3 guys besides you checking a flop with 2 suited cards I would say it is most likely that at least 1 will be chasing the flush, in my opinion you did well raising 0.30 on the turn (this would allow you to see if your straight was good), but after being raised by SB I would just fold, you could only win if he was bluffing, if he had two pairs or top pair he would have to bet on the flop to avoid people drawing out on him, with pocket nines is set was most likely facing a flush or straight already so he wouldn't raise here I think.
      Of course I'm assuming the oponent knows something :/
      But hey don't take my words for granted I'm just playing this for a week, still I decided to open up my first post here and take a shot of look silly :rolleyes:

      Actually your comment makes a lot of sense and I would totally agree with you, but I'm not quite sure if fold would be better choice at this limit, because I quite frequently see semibluffs that are trying to take away the pot in case that I was bluffing. And also my 10 in cross made me think that flush is a little less possible. :)

      ...but on higher limits I believe your thinking would be 100% right.

      Thank you for the post!

      Agree with xylere here. For sure there could be a flush draw chasing, but as shorty I would not lay down my straight here. too often a two pair, a set or something will call us. If he has the flush let it be, you didn't invest too much ;)
