Call on the turn might have got you a bigger pot with three handed to see the river. Nice hand, got a re-raise on river which sweeten it up a bit more.
I thought about just calling on the turn.
How could I make up for that .50c? On the river somehow?

I think you played it right..it seems like calling on the turn would be the right call but with the raise it almost seemed like two pair or a set trying to defend against the draw if you just called youd look that you were trying to see the river and that Jack would be the card youd want..since you raised the jack doesnt seem like it helped you and he thought his set was best..just my take on it.

Might had the player that folded there to the end. Limit, not going to chase someone on a flush draw away in that position (last to bet). Was the only hand that could of hurt you.
Had they been there to the end it would of been a bigger pot.

yeah you played that right. despite what everybody else is saying i dont think the raise on the turn is that wrong. you could have slow played the turn but then what are you going to do on the river? if you check raise you cant expect somebody to bet out unless they hit the river or have an overpair. if you bet the river then the only hands that are going to call you are hands that would have called you on the turn like the idiot straight or an overpair with the exception that two overs hit. the only hands that will fold on the turn are two overs.

re: Poker & Limit Holdem question
If you just call that turn, I'm going to come beat you guys with the limit stick.

After you hit your Straight I would raised at ever possible point! More money in that pot the better for you!
