      Please have a look at this one.
      Pre - standard
      Flop - bet for value. Doubt he has an overpair given preflop play so he's probably got Qx, 33, lower JJ- that float.
      Turn - bet for value again vs. the above. Villain raises. I know that turn raise = nuts usually but is trips c top kicker too strong to fold? I'd def. fold QJ- and maybe QK also.

      Given that there's so little left after his raise I shove over the top to get max value from Qx. Is this spew - should I just call (or fold)?

      Hi Red,

      If we knew UTG is a super nit that only limps small pockets then we could find a fold but otherwise there's no way I can fold the trips with top kicker when he can have KK/AA slowplayed, along with many worse Qx.

      If you had like a Q9/QT/QJ then it would be a clear fold.
