      I flopped trips with a low kicker (could hardly be lower :) )easy ok to call on all streets as a way ahead /ay behind kind of things or should I give it up on the turn barell.

      Hey thazar,

      I think calling down is well played. I don't think there's much value in raising anywhere nor should one fold trips here.

      I'll leave this one for Gerv because I don't play much MSS.

      I think calling down is OK and sometimes you can contemplate raising River based on the cards and his betsizing.

      Folding the Turn is marginal in my opinion because there is only 1 ace out there and 77s are 3 combo's
