When should you fold three-of-a-kind? (my hand analysis))
Hi, I was playing 1NL in 888 poker and I wanted to asked how should i have played this hand. How could I determine that my opponent had a better hand? Should I have bet on the flop or check was ok? I also have a note from pokertracker " Played turn draw aggressively " if it helps to analyse.
well that sucks, be careful on cash tables, to many tight players.

That would be an extremely difficult hand to get away from. The only thing which might have saved you is to consider the possibilities of someone having trips with a better kicker, a straight, or a pocket pair that hit trips.
Ultimately, you have to ask yourself, is this person trying to steal the pot, or are they trying to double-up? From my cash game experience, few people will go all-in on a bluff since it is cash value instead of tournament chips leading me to believe they would have had a strong hand, but ultimately I think I would have called as well. Like they say, I don't think I would be "good enough" to get away from that hand.
In the end, they led you into a beautifully laid trap. One most players would have fallen into as well.
