      first, wait for BB to join the game :D
      i'd raise to 0.90 or something to protect against flush or straight and get my money in on turn, so i'd def play for stack :)

      Posting on CO is also o.k. due to strategy! ;) Some say it's even better but don't ask me for the mathematical prove, difference is marginal.

      Definitely I would get broke here with my trip. I would reraise minimum pot size to protect against possible draws. This minbet could definitely mean a draw which villain tries to get with a cheap card.

      If I'm running against a monster let it be. How many monsterhands are out there to be ahead at this point? 33, 53.

      Direct push is also possible imo if we want max FE. For me it depends on reads of my opponent. If he's loose I would hope to hold him in the hand with a normal reraise, if he's a regular I maybe like to win the pot directly.

      Entering in the game from cutoff is o.k,but as close to BU as possible.
      Without any doubts you should play this hand very aggressively-you have made
      hand,still vulnerable ,you should protect it -standard 2/3 pot size raise if you first
      to act,if was bet,then pot size bet or even all in.You should do pot odds to your opp unfavorable ,then if he calls he is looser in long term,even you lost in short term.You have outs too,you can catch full hose or quads.Reread SSS articles -free
      play from BB and don`t miss this not often good chance.
      Good luck . :)

      One more vote for a pot size raise here ;) . And definitely go broke on these trips. Go broke even on a two-pair ;) .

      agree with bet pot size/push
