      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with T:heart: , T:club:
      UTG2 raises to $0.30, MP1 folds, Hero calls $0.30, MP3 raises to $1.30, 4 folds, UTG2 calls $1.00, Hero calls $1.00.

      Flop: ($4.05) Q:club: , J:spade: , T:spade: (3 players)
      UTG2 checks, Hero checks, MP3 bets $2.5, UTG2 raises to $5.80, Hero folds

      Thoughts? Loose re-call, made it because I figured a set would be nearly certain to get paid in a 3 way, giving narrow odds in favor with the money already in play.

      I enjoyed this hand because it was amusing how easy it was to fold trips in a 3bet pot. I'm not sure I ever have before.

      Hello Jaissica,

      Even calling this preflop is pretty marginal. We are getting ~11:1 so practically ain't the greatest implied odds.

      And as played the flop ain't the bet for us, that's true. He may easily have a lot of better sets here and even a straight possible. But what do you think how would that guy play his KK/AA preflop? What about something like KQs?

      And while we haven't invested money into the pot that much it really comes up to the opponent we see him. As he even has W$SD 57 which is pretty good therefore I might even be inclined to fold here as well since it really seems like a stronger holding.

      Best regards.
