      The time to get all-in with trips is either the flop or the turn, when both A. the villain could still have "outs" to chase, and B. the villain could put you on overplaying a draw of some kind.

      Attacking once the river completes a straight says "hi I have a straight". You dont want to say that to top pair / overpair as they will run away.

      As the flop is somewhat drawy you should probably play raise-shove there, although since MP2 has charged themselves drawing odds it doesnt hurt to see a turn. Once the turn was not a diamond that was the time to play for stacks.

      With your shoves, measure them to the villain's remaining stack better. No need to intimidate with an all in when you can "bet" $3.50 without the appearance of a shove, even though it puts the villain all in.

      Raise on the flop to go broke, if he just calls then bet the turn again big. You have to protect on the flop so just calling is a no-no.
