      Villain stats in 218 hands :
      11(vpip)/7(pfr)/100(f 3bet)/14(steal)
      33(fcbet)/100(f 2nd barrel)/18(wtsd)/2.2(af)

      First, I don't remember why I bet. I think it was because the other limper had a very low AF so I couldn't count on him for betting and I didn't like the texture of the board. On the turn I see that ace and being such a fish I thought maybe he's minraising me with Ax but there's no way this tight villain will ever do that, he'd probably raise preflop the big aces. So I go allin because I don't like calling and ... losing value by slowplaying :f_biggrin: , but there's no way he would have a worse hand.

      I'm losing quite a lot with 'lucky' freeplay trips vs sets (I'm losing a lot vs sets in general) so how should I approach them? Still got SSS prejudices saying twopair+ and trips are bet,bet,bet but these are another strategy and another kind of opponent.

      I think since you are IP , I would valuebet the TUrn against turned Ax, flushdraws and if he check/raises like this, I am more inclined to just call because otherwise you are way behind when you get it in versus this player

      Best regards,
