      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      BB (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is BB with T, T.
      MP2 posts deadblind, MP2 checks, MP3 folds, CO raises to $0.10, 2 folds, Hero calls $0.08, MP2 folds.

      Flop: ($0.23) 7, T, J (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $0.16, Hero calls $0.16.

      Turn: ($0.55) K (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.26, CO raises to $1.04

      I tried to slow play trips, which may or may not be an error. I have to call this turn raise, right?

      yeah, if you donk the turn, your hoping for a raise, but id probably rather just c/r the turn and shove the river

      Hello hackbinder,

      Don't like that much to slowplay here. There will be couple of cards which we don't want to see, like even Q/K or even Ace since it may complete a lot of his range. Like QQ-AA, AQ-AK. Therefore I'd just go for Check/Raise right on flop while even being OOP. We don't want him to give free cards.

      As played guess I would want to continue there then I'd just get it in since we will be pretty much committed on river anyways. Also not a huge fan of donking either there for the given reason above.

      Best regards.
