      Preflop I called villain because he is loose and I'm in possition.
      On the flop i tought for a while. It is dry, so I can give a card, but then I don't make the pot bigger, so I betted out.

      The preflop raiser called, I assume he has a pocker pair. I overbet the pot when he checks because i hope he would think "why would hero overbet with trips, I will catch this bluff". If i fire a normal bet, it's likely that he is scared and fold his pockets.

      Why do you bet so big on the turn? I check behind the turn and bet the river. He won't have a weaker ace. He either has an AK/AQ (split or loss) pr a pocket. By checking behind the turn and betting the river we represent a small pocket. Hoping to get called by another pocket.
