Hitting Trips in a Poker Hand

In this edition of Poker Bites we take a look at a hand played by Felix 'xflixx' Schneiders in a 200NL 6-Max cash game on PokerStars. On the Turn we hit trips but what is the best way to proceed in the hand to extract maximum value?

Hear comments from Felix, Randy 'nanonoko' Lew and Alex 'Kanu7' Millar

Highlight points
  • Don't bloat the pot if there's no reason too, check-calling is fine in some spots.
  • Give your opponent the opportunity to bet with weaker holdings.
  • In some bluff situations you are either way ahead or way behind.
