      Was hoping to check raise the flop to protect my hand as much as possible as if raiser has a hand he will likely C-bet, maybe a donk would have been better?

      Turn, continue to protect my hand as much as possible putting the pre-flop raiser on a draw.

      River, wrongly assumed that he could expect value from trips, in hindsight he would have raised these on the flop, think I should have played check / fold here. If he bet's he's probably got me beat, he seems pretty tight so would check hands I beat and missed draws behind.
