Flopping a straight on a monotone board

1-1 cash game with optional UTG straddle.
Hero is on the Button with 89 and 250
V1 is on the SB with 220 is more on the Loose passive side
V2 is on the BB with 300 was tight at the start but has raised a few hands in the last hour.

OTTH

UTG straddles to 2.
Folds to Hero raises to 10
V1 calls 10
V2 raises to 40?
UTG folds.
I think I am deep enough to call in Position?
Hero calls 40
V1 calls 40

122 in the pot
Flop is Q J 10
V1 checks
V2 bets 30
Hero???

What would you guys do in this spot. I'll post results after some responses.

Re: Flopping a straight on a monotone board

not sure how I feel about the raise on the button, I'd rather just limp IP; You're not getting the right odds to call the raise pf, even IP it should be a fold

AP, raising and raising fairly big to deny equity to FD's and get value, please don't flat call this flop

Re: Flopping a straight on a monotone board

I like the raise, but we should go smaller here I think. Not sure what the normal raise was PF but to me there's no need to go 5x the straddle with no one else in the pot when you're on the BTN...a thinking V will know you have a very wide range, and it makes for more difficult in spots just like this when we get 3!. Raise to like 6 or 8 here and we can get behind calling a 3! for $20ish dollars. 40 is too much of our stack to be playing suited connectors hoping to hit a flop. Villain has a pretty nutted range I think.. from what I've seen tighter villains in low limit games don't raise their BB unless they've got a monster.

AP it's a now or never kind of flop for me, if he has spades or AK say nice hand and move on, but we want to set ourselves up to GII here when we flop a straight, so raising is a must. With the board this wet and so many bad cards that can come on a turn for us, I'd consider shoving here, but if not, don't raise an amount where your opponent is committed to calling off whatever stack you have left. I'd just make it like $80. If he insta-shoves when a spade comes on the turn, you at least saved $100. If it's a brick you're getting it all in one way or another.

As played.
Hero Raises 210 All in.
V1 tanks for 2 minutes and folds.
V2 snap calls and turns over K 9.
Drawing dead.
Turn Q
River 7

I went all in to put pressure on AA through 10 - 10. and combos of AQ with Ace.

Re: Flopping a straight on a monotone board

2x pot overshove is massively overplaying our hand. We're only getting actions from hands which beat us or have *very* good equity against our hand.

Raise to $90 or so.
