This is a discussion on 1/3 river decision w/ trips within the online poker forums, in the Cash Games section; $300 Eff.Two ep limpers. Hero raises to $15 in the LJ with with KQo
Blinds call. Both limpers call. I think I made a mistake not
So everyone else folded to villain's 50bb bet on the flop? It doesn't sound like you have much of a read on him... white guy who has overvalued tpwk? I would be worried about AQ here as well on top of the possible Qx two-pairs that graduated to boats.
The turn checks are very weird. I think your villain was feigning weakness here. You missed a chance to get some more value or information on this street from a bet.
As played, I would call and hope it's a weaker Qx that's not a boat or otherwise KK+. Raising wouldn't lead to worse hands calling you.

Blinds call. Both limpers call. I think I made a mistake not making it $20. I usually 5x plus 3 for each limper.
Flop(75) 4 9 Q r
V in the BB bets 50. Hero calls.
Villain is a mid 20's white guy. Bets draws. Seen him bet top pair weak kicker aggressively. I'm worried about a set of 4s or two pair though.
Turn(175) 4 9 Q 7r
V checks. Hero checks.
River(175) 4 9 Q 7 Q
V bets 95. Hero?
IMO you need to call.
At best he has 2 pair - Queens and Nines (or similar)
Trip Queens is good here !
Good luck !

He checked on the turn. With your top pair I feel you should’ve bet about half the pot. Like you said, he has played more aggressively with a weak kicker, but I know you’re worry about a set. Chances are that he can have QJ, Q10. I would’ve bet the turn and see his thought process from the outside in.

re: Poker & 1/3 river decision w/ trips
I would snap call with KQ!!! no way we can fold on this river unless he is super tight...

I think your initial raise pre-flop is fine. I usually do 3x plus 1bb per limper. ($16 here) The fact you have 5 people going to the flop means a lot of them are limping hoping for a flop that goes their way. keep this in mind for later hands.
Villain bets 50, not bad, just 3.2x your earlier bet. All the folders made nothing in the flop. I suspect the villain did. I would 3 bet here to get information. You could also do it on the turn when he checks, but it needs done before you call his bets. A 3 bet here will get him to fold a number of hands.
If you didn't 3 bet earlier, definitely bet decently here. if the villain calls, you can figure he has AA, KK, AQ, KQ or QX.
Villian bets 95 (by now if you call 1/2 your stack is in.) Calling is a good option if your read on him is pushing a Qbadkicker combo. However, if he called or raised your 3 bet, you should be folded by now. If you are still here he could have a Q9 suited giving him a full house.
