Trips post flop?
I think i may be playing trips wrong post flop. I usually make a pot size bet post flop whenever i hit a set. This is because a) i want to get my money in the middle when i have a strong hand b) not to give any drawing hands the odds
More often then not everyone folds and i take the pot right there, but is that really what i want?
Today i got Js-Jc in early position and i raise 4BB, i get 2 callers. Flop comes 6d-7d-Jh and i now have the best posible hand at this point. I make my usual pot size bet and fold-fold the pot is mine. Had i made a 2BB bet i would have given any flush or strait drawing hands the odds to call and would that be a bad thing?
A flush draw would have 8 outs on the turn (Jd would give me quads) but i myself have 6 outs to make a full house + 1 out for quads. Lets say the turn is 8c, i would not have no less then 10 outs on the river to beat any flush or strait. Thats more outs then any drawing hand would have + i already have a made hand.
Not sure i have made my thinking clear, but i sure would like some feedback cause i am simply not getting enough out of trips. According to my small hand database, i would be better of never to play any small or medium pocket pair.
