      donkbetter had made some questionable plays.

      direct 3bet or even fold?

      as played I had odds of 33:81 or so to call the push.

      Known players:

      0,25/0,5 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.58 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is CO with 3:club: , 3:spade:
      MP2 folds, MP3 raises to $1,75, Hero calls $1,75, BU folds, SB calls $1,50, BB calls $1,25.

      Flop: ($7,00) 5:diamond: , 3:heart: , 4:spade: (4 players)
      SB bets $7,00, BB folds, MP3 raises to $15,00, Hero calls $15,00, SB raises to $46,70 (All-In), 2 folds, SB gets uncalled bet back..

      Final Pot: $52,00

      I think you played it well, but you had to call SB shove because of the pot odds, you can be ahead (he could have two pair) and against a straight I think you got pot odds to call for a FH and quads.

      No value in re-raising MP3 IMO, but you cant fold because MP3 probably has an overpair and SB doesnt necessarily has you beat.

      Maybe a miniraise to MP3 would be the best here though, MP3 could call with his overpair if SB has a draw or something and wont shove.

      I think you can´t really call MP3 raise and then fold to sb shove.
      I´d shove on the flop, since MP3 could hold overpair and SB two pair and since pot is big then putting 100bb in with bottom set can´t be wrong.
