How often should you fold trips?
Mentioned this in the kickers thread but was interested in feedback
Live tourney today. 4 callers of the BB, I was in SB and completed the blind, 2000 chip pot for the cost of 200, worth looking it up. I flopped top pair and a flush draw was out there. I bet 1.5BB to look weak and test the waters. 2 callers. Turn came King, giving me trips (with a jack kicker). Flush draw was still out there and I did not want to give the one guy i put on a flush draw a chance. I was already somewhat short stacked and after putting in my BB and my 1.5BB bet, had 4BB's left, and pushed in. One insta call, one fold, and Im staring at KQ across the table from my KJ, and nothing on the board to save me.
I call this "shit happens", you get priced into completing a blind, hit top pair, test the waters, turn trips, only way id get out of this hand was if I had enough chips that I could have folded if the guy re-raised my 4BB bet (which was all in, in this case)
If the King hadnt come on the turn I would have checked and seen what the others in the hand would do, and gone from there, but with the King hitting I wasnt going to slow down and let the flush draw out.
This seemed like the best hand Id have to almost triple up (started the hand with about 6.5 BBs, Pot was 5x1BB preflop total+3x1.5BB on the flop and 2x4BB on the turn.
Feel free to tell me I was an idiot for whatever part of this play, I am still a noob for live tournaments and looking for feedback.
