      Do we cap here pre? I didn't put BU on AA/KK, from how tight people are I thought he has at least a strong 2 pair.

      Lately I've seen some people 3Betting v wide, so BTN could 3Bet wide especially if CO is v loose.

      Capping pre w/ trips is not a mistake.

      I'll think x/c post-draw is a bit cautious, and x/r is a bit daring.

      I would bet/call.

      However, the single biggest source of loss I have is bet/call after draw, so maybe x/c is better.

      Cheers,

      999xx is really good trips. I would always cap it pre against more than one player and bet post-draw unless someone is pat.

      In a multi-way pot uou have to be able to get away from the hand if raised after the draw.
