      Once again of my trips got action on the flop. I have a few questions to optimise my gains.

      When Villain follows minbet/ reraise, I start to fear. A considered few
      lines:
      - fold: definitely too weak
      - call: too drawy board for a call and I'm fearing the reversed implied odds.
      - minraise to 1$: I'm fearing to show the strength of my end and to be readable. I wouldn't fold even on a spade. Maybe on a Q or a J. But it'd hard and nit. Not sure to want to do fancy move in microlimit.
      - shove: last option, I chose it. We take money of all the hand like FD+pair, gutshot+pair, TT. Maybe even JJ and QQ if Villain is super aggro. And even if Villain has JQ, I still have many outs. The only hand that crushes me totally is AA slowplayed.

      Which line would you choose (I guess the push) but even more why?
