      This seems like a really easy/standard spot my guess is that your friend is playing too high.

      This is a very easy 4bet preflop for value since these days people are going all -in with AQ and other worse hands. As played you definitely can't fold trips in a 3bet pot. No reads are given on small blind but he could easily have stuff like KJ or random suited kings like K2s. I don't think there's a significant difference between raising Turn or calling Turn and River, especially since you didn't provide any information about SB's tendencies
