I dont have any real reads on either player although they are both loose. I flop the nut straight and since the flop is rainbow, Im probably way ahead of both villan's hands and dominate any draws. I want to extract the maximum possible so I decide to simply call the flop bet to keep the other player in the pot.
The turn pairs the board but there are many hands that could call and very few that improve to a full house but many that could improve to trips that would be good on the flop. I decide to reraise the turn bet to get more money into the pot and villain reraises. Im not going anywhere despite what card comes on the river so I decide to shovel the money in. Also, the other villain folded so I want this villain to get all his money in too.
I think I played this hand pretty well and got really unlucky. I usually don't slowplay but I think there were reasons to (help villain catch up and to keep the other villain in the pot to increase the size of the pot). There are also very few cards that could improve villain's hand to become stronger than mine.
