I probably hate myself for calling and not pushing.

You see JQ alot here.

Is there any specific reason you bet 90 on the turn?

I can't imagine him having you beat more then 20/100 times.(lol i am so bad at the math part of this game)
I think this is pretty much an auto-push.

Good question, just noticed the flush draw on the board. Should have bet 100-125ish. The river definitely scared me, I played the hand exactly like I hit BB special trips and after the cold-call turn and minraise river, I'm smelling monster.

There was no way I could get myself to fold that on the river. Called and he showed 66

[Censored], I just realized this is kindof a bad beat post...sorry guys. Might as well get some value out of it...does anybody bet out the flop here (everybody checks trips...might be good to be different).

I almost always bet this flop. Especially with all those players in. Someone's bound to call you. And I'm most likely going broke here if he pushes me.

The interesting thing is I think that if I bet the flop, I'm going broke here as its more likely someone will play back at me. But the fact that I checked it, I felt like I was playing the hand more obviously like trips and mostly better hands would play back at me.

Likewise if he had bet the flop, I would raised and built the pot up, then probably would've comitted myself.

I think his checking with a flopped full house was pretty bad because it gave me every opportunity NOT to give him chips with the second best hand.

I'm very surprised that everyone is saying they are going to the felt with this hand on the river given my line. I push this river about 0% of the time. IMO You have soooo much to lose and very very little to gain by pushing the river.

I don't think even two pair will call this enough to make a river push profitable.

river is tough...I would lean towards calling, but folding is okay too, I have a hard time folding in these spots on the river, but it might be the correct play. I just have so many memories of making such calls and having my opponents turn over garbage, especially at the lower buyins. Reraising is completely ridiculous.

FWIW, I push this river 0% of the time. The chips gained by pushing (and having him call with a worse hand) are not as important as busting out when you are beaten.

Call his raise, if you lose the hand, you still have 475 chips (16 BBs at this point) and are still in position to ITM.
