      Hero (BB): $10
      UTG: $52.25
      UTG+1: $66.10
      UTG+2: $8.05
      MP1: $55.50
      MP2: $38.35
      CO: $35.85
      BTN: $36.60
      SB: $50.55

      Pre-Flop: A:club: T:club: dealt to Hero (BB)
      4 folds, MP2 calls $0.50, 2 folds, SB calls $0.25, Hero checks

      Flop: ($1.50) 9:spade: 7:diamond: 8:club: (3 Players)
      SB checks, Hero checks, MP2 checks

      Turn: ($1.50) 6:spade: (3 Players)
      [color:red]SB bets $1[/color], Hero calls $1, MP2 calls $1

      River: ($4.50) 4:club: (3 Players)
      [color:red]SB bets $2[/color], Hero calls $2, [color:red]MP2 raises to $6[/color], [color:red]SB raises to $49.05 and is All-In[/color], Hero folds, MP2 calls $30.85 and is All-In

      Results: $80.20 Pot ($3 Rake)
      MP2 showed T:spade: J:diamond: (a straight, Jack high) and WON $38.60 (+$0.25 NET)
      SB showed T:heart: J:club: (a straight, Jack high) and WON $38.60 (+$0.25 NET)

      Should i have reraised at the turn to 3$, instead of call ? My problem is, if they just call, i still face a bet / call / fold situation on the river again, of course, if the MP2 reraise my 3$ reraise on the turn, i fold, as i did at the river.
      Any opinion is welcome

      Re-raise, possibly all-in. You have made your str8 and you don`t care about your opponents hands.

      This is the way of SSS - whenever you have made hand, try to go all-in.

      JT is the only possible hand that beat you here on the Turn. So re-raise here the Bet from SB and get your money In.
