      Villain: 36/16/25 hands only =(
      He 'never' folds a steal if he is in the SB

      now I cbet the flop, maybe not the best choice but I did it anyways.
      Now on the turn I thought he was having a go for trips...
      Was it better if I gave up on the turn?

      Very nice hand!

      The cbet on the flop is fine if - and only if - you plan on 2ndbarreling.
      The reason is that his range contains a lot of PPs and maybe 8x that he's calling once but giving up on the turn.
      So only betting once would be bad.

      If you have a read that he generally doesn't like to fold even vs several barrels it's indeed best not to bet the flop in the first place.
