      Here's one more hand from the archives where I tried to be clever with flopped trips...

      I deserved the bad luck that followed on the turn where villain gets his 2 outer to crush me... but it was an important lesson for me on the danger of trips and trying to slowplay... haven't lost a big pot with trips after this one.

      Would you fold his turn raise even? Or maybe call and re-evaluate river?

      Since you want to stack his AJ/AT you should start out betting on the flop, also he would likely call with his flushdraws or Qx hands
      b/c turn is fine, since flushcard came and since he shoves river I think you can fold. He is not really doing that with worse trips and I doubt nl 2 players would overbet shove river with bluffs
