      Flopplay:
      Villain is very aggressive (5.4 AF Flop) and tries to take a cheapstab at the pot. In the end he gives me 7:1 to catch 2 pair or trips and I believe I have the right Implied odds.

      Turn:
      I got trips, should I just reraised to $2.25 and see the rivercard or is pushing decent enough to generate max value out of your trips?

      I feel that I want to differentiate from the original SSS strategy during these plays because it will often scare people away when I push.

      Any thoughts?

      Not really sure if I even would have made the call on flop, ye it's cheap but still you have only the lowest pair with no kicker at all. On the turn I would have made just a 3x raise, there is not much what was beating you on and you need to get more money into pot :P lets see what judges advice.

      Hi Gerv,

      I think the flop call is to loose you cant be sure that when you hit 2 pair on the turn that you are ahead villain can easily hold KJ and you have to think about his AF maybe he is only very aggressive in HU pots but most players dont attack 5 way pots.

      Turn is ok you are committed want to protect against straight draws so nice hand.
