      I lead here 3way, I think Im probably ahead with my top pair even though its no kicker...their range is very wide...

      I hit trips on the turn and I bet 1/2 pot here just in case I dont bloat the pot to much and get surprised by his Qx with stronger kicker...I think only 9x hand will call me on the flop, or some kind of Ax hand...they have their own ideas of drawing stuff

      River is kinda bad...I bet on the smaller side to get called by maybe some air or weaker hands and get raised...the raise is on the smaller side...I was willing to pay off a stronger queen if he had it here because the price to see it didnt seem that high to me...

      not sure if I should have bet bigger on the turn for protection or should have folded on the river and take it he went for a backdoor flush from the flop

      Hi Lavek,

      Preflop: looks fine, we can't really raise.

      Postflop: Our Qx might as well be a second pair type hand but I think we can get some thin value on the flop.

      On the turn it doesn't change a ton because if we were behind we still are and if we were ahead we still are. Betting small again for value vs 9x or TJ or TT is fine.

      On the river I think we should just look to either bet/fold small or just ck/fold. It's hard to get value from much and even TJ got there. So I would ck/fold.
