Mainly a no limit tournament player but the are no tournaments right now(live). Playing 2-100 and this hand comes up

6 handed
Hero $290 Hj
V 1 $290 SB
V2 $260 BB

Too early to have good reads. We are all around 55

Fold Fold Hero 22 calls button folds SB completes BB check.

Flop 245 Rainbow

Hero bets $12
V1 raises to $35
V2 maxes to $135
Hero calls
V1 raises max to $235
V2 raises all in
Hero raises all in
V1 calls

My thoughts were that one had 2 pairs and one had a straight as this would be common in the 2-100 games at our casino with mid 50s players. I knew I was behind one but turned out both had straights. One had A 3 and one had 6-3. Having eight outs on two streets and 3 additional outs on the river am I ok playing for stacks here or was I too aggressive?

    Personally, I probably would have quit after you put in the 12. The real killer for me is a higher set of trips, which I would have thought was the biggest possibility for at least one of them, and which has me badly dominated. But, as played, in reality behind two straights, I think you had the right odds to call. So good one. But if one of them did have two pair as you suspected you would have a lot fewer outs to beat the other one, the straight, and very wrong odds to call. So overall, probably not the best idea. However, I don't much know what I am doing so don't listen to me a lot :-).

    Oh, also, you would be a lot better off coming in for a raise rather than a limp, if that is what you mean by "Hero calls."

    I have no idea what this means. Loose, tight, aggressive, passive, lactose intolerant, wears Depends? Please expand.
    Also, yes, this is a raise. Should make it easier to play post flop. As played, I'd say at least one of them has you beat on the flop.

    If you assume you are up against 2-pair and a straight, you have far fewer than 7 outs. In fact you're in horrible shape. It's not that someone is holding your outs, it's that with the most likely 2-pair of 54, a 4 or 5 gives them a bigger boat.
