      Hello,

      I have two hands today, though both are similar in that they involve high trips
      and in that I ended up going all in.


      0.01/0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.60 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is UTG+1 with Q:diamond: , Q:spade:
      Hero raises to $0.08, UTG+2 calls $0.08, 5 folds, SB calls $0.07, BB calls $0.06.

      Flop: ($0.32) T:club: , J:club: , Q:heart: (4 players)
      SB checks, BB checks, Hero bets $0.20, UTG+2 raises to $0.58, 2 folds, Hero raises to $1.85 (All-In), UTG+2 raises to $1.73 (All-In), Hero gets uncalled bet back..

      Turn: ($3.78) 5:spade:
      River: ($3.78) 7:diamond:


      Final Pot: $3.78


      Then there's this one.

      hi
      you didnt floped trips you floped a set in both hands
      pls post just 1 hand / thread so you can get better feedback for your game

      hand 1 :

      bet pot (or close to pot ) on the flop and call a shove

      hand 2 :

      you can shove or you can check behind to give a free card with just a bet smaller then potsize left or you can take your line . is very likely that the money will go in with any line you take in a 4 beted pot :)

      Right, sets, of course. What a bonehead.

      So in both cases I played well enough? That's good to know because I was thinking of altering my play after those tragic results.

      Many thanks!

      I believe trips are when you have one card in your hand and 2 on the board, for example, you have A 6 and flop has 3 6 6. And a set is when you have a pair in your hand and hit the 3rd card on the board...

      I can be totally wrong though this is just conclusions Ive drawn after hearing people use the words :p

      for the record so all of you dont mistake it again :)
      trips is one card in the hand and two same cards on the board
      set is a pocket pair in the hand and the same card on the board
