      I thought on rainbow board it is not necessary to protect so I choose slowplay.
      and I reraise on turn but he rereraise. His stats is 94/47/1.4.
      His aggression is not high so I should think he is over me?

      Hello Gonchan,

      Flop: Don't really see why you shouldn't bet the flop? :> Never-ever gonna Check behind there.

      As played
      Turn: What do you think, with what he is overbetting here? Do you really consider him having much weaker hand? Also it hasn't much to do with AF here as you went for slowplay and as you went for a raise then there is nothing much to do. Myself I might even prefer just Calling and reevaluating it on river.

      Best regards.

      Flop
      I thought trips is so strong on rainbow flop and I didnt care straight.
      If he caught A or K, he would pay me more.
      However, with bet on flop, he got a good odds and pay with weak hand.
      Which is better factor?

      Turn
      I dont even care straight and he would call Qx hand because of his
      too high VPIP.
      Can I call his reraise on turn and if he shove on river, its fold spot with tear?

      Obvious bet it. :) He ain't gonna bet you anyways if he doesn't have a hand. This Check behind usually looks rather a trap play than a Check as weakness since you would Bet there with any bluff hands, wouldn't you?

      Wasn't this your flop plan? :) To trap him?
