      i get the straight on the turn but on river flush becomes possible and my 2 opponents become active. I wouldnt be so afraid of it if there wasnt 2 same color cards on the flop. Also my position is bad because im between the initial raiser and the reraiser.

      possible they both got a pair of A because at 0.02/0.04 ppl usually do crazy stuff so i think in my opinion you should go all in :D

      Personally i would say you have got good position. You have seen the raise and the re-raise which should make it a fold at least for me....bad position would be if you were UTG+1 then you would call the first raise only to be met by the re-raise behind.

      Oh i would also raise more on the turn at this level you can usually overbet the pot and still get calls so you might as well charge them for the draw.

      I'd raise the turn pot size...so to 0.4$ and fold that river
