View Full Version : ($16) Turned trips 5-handed

No reads, players have done nothing out of line. Can anybody name one hand that somebody might check the flop and this fast on the turn that doesn't have me beat? It felt like calling here was rooting to at best split on the river or have SB flip over 33 for a flopped set.

I see very few hands you're beating here, fold.

bet the flop

You really advocate folding getting almost 4:1... even with the 3rd player left to act you pretty much have to push here. The way you played the hand, it doesn't look at all like trip Jacks... plus you practically have odds against 33/AJ anyway.

On this one I'll just take the challenge to name hands you are ahead of.

8s9s, 9sQs, QsKs maybe a few worse draws.

You also have 7 outs if he's got 33 or TT.

Still, I don't know what I'd do and gotta run, and have kids running around me and stuff and can't decide.

Yah, I was wondering about that as well. I'm assuming you fold to a re-raise?

I would add A,10 to the mix. Once the flop gets checked around and the turn brings another J, many players could convince themselves that A,10 is good.

Considering the pot odds and your stack, I would push.
