Hi Guys,

Second tournament in a row I hit trips from the BB and bust. Should I call the flop? Do I just have to go with the hand after hitting trips?

Hi DasherF78,

Just very unlucky this hand.

Again I don't think I like raising preflop. With 3 limpers we would be bloating the pot and playing out of position too often.

I think you've played it perfect. Check calling the flop, allow worse hands to bet or bluff and catch and stay behind on the turn and get one street of value on the turn or river.

When Ace on the turn falls you are committed, but if you bet, you are only getting called by bigger Aces.

Better luck next game
