      Completing this pre-flop was very tempting. How often am I ahead with straight after reraise on such board? As I watch this hand now I probably should just call small reraise, not shove (villain is bad player, i thought he was slowplaying Tx). Almost same situation happened few hands later. I had straight on paired board, I raise the river, villain shoves. I folded then. What's the best play in situations like this?

      I don't hate a jam on the river since he might show naked trips sometimes, but calling the minraise is lower variance in those situations where you have the option of taking a showdown when unsure. Plus his line really looks like a slowplay and it's easier for people to slowplay when they have the deck crushed with T8 than it is with naked trips on a board where both flushes and straight are possible.

      Hope it helps.
