    Default Flopped trips with bad kicker in 3 way pot

    Villian is a solid player as is the the button none have got out of line so far. Im pretty sure my flop call is the right play but my problem comes on the turn. im not really worried about villian (SB) my concern is the button. HE did call the large flop bet so now im a little confused if i should check the turn here or put in a 3/4 bet. And im really wondering what the button has in this spot.

    Full Tilt No-Limit Hold'em, $0.02 BB (6 handed) - Full-Tilt Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.com

    UTG ($2.65)
    MP ($2.28)
    Hero (CO) ($2)
    Button ($1.11)
    SB ($4.83)
    BB ($1.02)

    Preflop: Hero is CO with 8, 10
    2 folds, Hero calls $0.02, Button calls $0.02, SB bets $0.04, 1 fold, Hero calls $0.02, Button calls $0.02

    Flop: ($0.14) 10, 10, 2 (3 players)
    SB bets $0.14, Hero calls $0.14, Button calls $0.14

    Turn: ($0.56) 4 (3 players)
    SB checks, Hero ?

    this is a raise for me preflop because I would like button to fold so I am in position, as well as a shot at picking up the blinds
    on the turn bet yo, button can have spades or a small pocket pair or a ten
    sb can have pretty much anything

    Am i usually going to worry about the button having a hand like JT or QT? should i push or make pot size bet on the turn?

    He checked the turn, that usually means weakness especially in these limits. I'd say you have to bet $0.50. The button is probably on a draw and SB probably has a pair like iopq said.

    When you limped with T8s, what were you hoping for on the flop? If you had hit your flush, then there would have been 4 possible higher flushes. You have to play this as if you have the best hand, unless there is substantial evidence to the contrary, otherwise why limp in the first place.

    If the big blind is solid, he could plausibly have 2 spades, 2x or a pocket pair. As has been said, the SB could have anything. People will call down in these situations with K high. I'd bet 0.50 on the turn. If that got raised and then called/re-raised, then I might get worried about what they could have to justify those bets on that board.
