      Final Pot: $4.12.
      Results follow:

      BU shows two pairs, jacks and fours(J J).
      Hero shows three of a kind, fours(Q 4).

      Hero wins with three of a kind, fours(Q 4).

      HU, hit a pair on draw heavy board against SB opening.

      Not too many hands w/ SB, I stole a couple of pots from him before. He seemed to play too tight shorthanded.

      Decided to just call on flop and wait for the turn since I have position. SB continued to fire so I assumed he had something. Got lucky w/ trips, I made a min raise to induce a call. Is the raise amount too low?

      Hi Superbrain,

      Preflop: Even HU this is a fold preflop OOP

      Postflop: As played I would raise bigger on the turn. You gain nothing by raising so small and you give him a cheap way to see a river with a draw.
