      Would a bet on the turn be better. rainbow flop... I remember thinking if he didn't call my flopbet he wouldn't call my turnbet, But is it not worth trying when you think you have easily the best hand?

      On the other hand, he still has a remote chance of getting a good draw on the turn depending on his cards ofc.

      half sized bet on the flop to keep him having ok odds against your monster?
      BUT
      I think it's still fine to just win small pots.
      Obz they will build up over time and you dont really want villain to suck out on you when you flop trips.
      In the long run you will loss more if you let villain catch up because most of the time you will go broke.

      Ye a smaller bet would be better idea and see the turn and how do others act.

      Against such a number of oponents it's ok to just bet.

      It's alway ok to just bet :) . Trips aren't such a monster to slowplay them... You can win additional bet maybe and maybe not. Maybe if you bet the flop than you can put all your money in before showdown if somebody shows interest in this hand, while by betting on the turn you would not have such a chance?
