      I bet turn with the intention to fold to a raise. However my opponent calls on a very draw-heavy board and then fires a big one on the river when all draws have missed. I figure he would have raised turn with trips so I call. Am I making a right decision here?

      you´re not ahead too ofen but without any reads I can´t see how you can c/f, since he can always have there some kind of missed draw or decides to turn smt like 66 into bluff. Never really can´t be sure what fishes are going to do if you check to them

      I would raise bigger pre as you're not going to get any folds with that size and I don't know how comfortable you are playing 3 way QQ OOP.

      1.5-1.7 imo
