      Sometimes I'm not sure of the best way to play trips. On one hand, you need to protect, but when I raise the turn I might as well do a global marketing campaign announcing I have trips!

      Is there more value just to call, or is it just a case of they either have something or they don't? There don't seem to be any draws, except for 78.

      There really is little need for protection on this board at all. There is one OESD out there, of which one of the outs gives you a full house, and there are a few gutshots. We can easily flat on the turn here then raise the river. Although it's always going to be hard to get value out of top trips :)
