      As u can imagine I was pretty sure somebody had a set here, because 3 of em are going all-in. I think usually i am beat in this spot....not this time lol.
      I am wondering if I should have called here because it's a turbo.

      Lemme know if u would have done anything different. THANX

      BTW: This situation shows how sometimes having good knowledge about the game can work against you. When I just started playing I would have insta-called here. I find myself making alot more big laydowns these days. Usually because I don't like putting in all of my chips (or a big portion) with merely top pair, bad kicker or second pair. Even though sometimes I feel like I'm folding the best hand.

      Is this a SNG or cash game?

      Ok, read more carefully. I would make this call in a SNG every time and fold it in a cash game. Just me.

      What can the other players have tho. IMO its pretty unlikely to be up against 2 flush draws and an overpair. And even if I am I have to dodge alot of cards on the turn and river.
