      Blinds: $0.10/$0.25
      6 players

      Stack sizes:
      Hero: $27.85
      UTG+1: $13.87
      CO: $37.84
      Button: $18.18
      SB: $42.13
      BB: $39.65

      Pre-flop: (6 players) Hero is UTG with A:heart: J:spade:
      [color:#cc0000]Hero raises to $1[/color], UTG+1 folds, CO calls, Button calls, 2 folds.

      Flop: 2:spade: J:club: 4:club: ($3.35, 3 players)
      [color:#cc0000]Hero bets $2.75[/color], CO calls, Button calls.

      Turn: 5:heart: ($11.6, 3 players)
      [color:#cc0000]Hero bets $9[/color], CO calls, [color:#cc0000]Button raises all-in $14.43[/color], Hero calls, CO calls.

      River: 5:spade: ($54.89, 2 players + 1 all-in - Main pot: $54.89)
      [color:#cc0000]Hero is all-in $9.67[/color].
      Uncalled bets: $9.67 returned to Hero.

      My main question was weather I should bet the turn strong like I did considering they both called the flop, I put them on flush draws, Jx, or sets, so only the set is beating me. Once I raised, I couldn’t fold to the reraise because the odds were so good. Also, was there any point pushing the river…though that this guy had Jx or flush draw and might pay off just with Jx because he's invested so much already

      On the river it's ok to go allin, because as you said he'll probably pay with Jx as he came so far.

      I think on the turn 4betting was probably better so you don't give odds for CO to call with a flushdraw, and on the river you have to call anything anyway.

      Your bets were fine, you really couldn't fold when BTN re-raised because of the odds, but he's a donkey anyway since he's not bigstack.

      nh. I dont know if you were allowed to raise again on the turn cause of his minraise, but if so get it in there. youre potcomittet and you dont want to see CO folding the river when missing his flush.
