(I thought about the flop and reviewed what potential hands SB could have after shoving and I put the player on a combination of hands such as 10-8 or 8-5 for straight possibilities. I also thought of combinations of 9-7, 7-6. I thought of other possibilities such as 99 or 77. I thought of the possibilities and set was possible, but I thought if he had me then he had me and with the players behind having such small stacks except Hijack, I felt it was also less likely the 3 had a set or two pair because they would have raised after PFR. Therefore, I thought the call was fine here so as to initiate a side pot possibility with Hijack. Also, I felt I had pot odds to call with $114 to win $267 at this point.)

Turn: :3H:
Pot: $470

I check
Hijack Checks

(I thought Hijack may have a draw, which looking back I should have bet to extract additional value to see the final card.)
River: :3D:
Pot $470

I bet $200
Hijack folds.

I show Full House and SB folds saying he had a straight.

    Missed some value on the turn on a wet board after HJ flats the flop twice playing his hand face up as a draw..time to build a side pot and get some value and possibly win the main as well

    I would definitely have went all in on the flop instead of calling.

    By calling you are incentivizing villains behind to realize their equity for a fair price. If they want to realize that equity it should be incorrect because of the price I set.

    You don't initiate a side pot by calling here but by raising. As played you should initiate the side pot by betting
