Was it right to shove on the turn or should I just call ? I mainly shoved because I felt villain would almost always c-bet in a multiway pot with his straights, especially on such a wet board. I know that villain is usually pretty straight forward and aggressive and tries to play his strong hands fast. That's why I just assumed he would never check-call with a straight or a set of JJ on a board with a flush draw.
I also showed a really big bluff in another hand against villain that's why I assumed Villain would call with hands like ATs or AJs.
Any thoughts ?

I would say shoving on the turn was a good move. If your opponent had the straight already on the flop, why raise on the turn?

That is a horrible flop for a set esp vs two people.. i might be a nit on this situation and just call on turn and see what happens on river. Maybe i hit a full, maybe he bluffed for some stupid reason, maybe he has AA since that was a really bad flop for AA too but still risky to bet AA on that turn.. but there are so little good cards for you on turn and river. Any 7 8 K Q put a 4-card straight on board. So I would play this spot carefully. The value of a set is relative.. just the nuts can be absolute.
