      Yea, you have to raise (which will be shoving the rest of your money in) you got the nuts...

      I only called, because I wanted the other player to call, aswell, with a hand like btm set or 2 pairs.

      I only have implied odds if CO overcalls the turn and I win about 3,5$ more on the river...

      SB is never folding after he c/r which means that you are 100% getting 2.65$ from him + CO might overcall as well which is 6.65$ more.

      On the other hand if you flat call you have no idea if CO will call too. even if he calls 65% of the times it less then 2.65$ which you will get always.

      Edit: Correction, you are getting the implied odds to call his turn bet

      You pots odds are 46:8 = 5.75:1.
      Even if CO folds, you will need to extract from him further 3.31$
      (3.31 = 5.75*1.15-3.3) to make a call profitable. I think you can extract 3.3$ from him IP most of the times when you do hit the nuts on the river.
      so all in all it's an EV+ call on the turn.

      So, the main idea is definitely a reraise after hitting the nutz on the river in that spot.

      Thank you.
