Value bet? Or is there any value to be had?

      A pack of feral cows chewed their cuds for .0043 seconds to convert this hand
      PokerStars No Limit 5 Card Draw ($1.00+$0.10) t60/t120 ante t30 - 6 players

      UTG+1: t3,705
      CO: t2,455
      Button: t6,440 (Hero)
      SB: t5,770
      BB: t6,068
      UTG: t3,015

      Dealing Hands: (t360) :Ac: :Qc: :Tc: :Qh: :Qs: (6 players)
      UTG calls t120, UTG+1 calls t120, CO folds, Hero raises to t500, SB calls t440, BB folds, UTG calls t380, UTG+1 calls t380

      First Draw: (t2,300) (4 players)
      SB discards 1, UTG discards 2, UTG+1 discards 1, Hero discards 1,
      :Qc: :Tc: :Qh: :Qs: || :2d:
      SB checks, UTG checks, UTG+1 checks, Hero checks

      UTG+1 mucked :Js: :As: :Ts: :4s: :3h:
      Hero showed :2d: :Qc: :Tc: :Qh: :Qs: , three of a kind, Queens <= ???
      SB showed :8d: :5s: :7h: :6h: :6c: , a pair of Sixes
      UTG mucked :4c: :Jh: :3c: :Th: :Ah:
      Hero won t2300

      I could get value from two pairs, or I could get smeared by made flushes, straights or boats (or higher trips).

      I decided to just check it back.

      What think you?

      Yeah I think you made the correct post draw decision! Facing 3 D1 opponents with a solid trips hand is daunting. I know you think you missed out but just think 'If I bet who is calling?', the few suspicious 2pr/trips hands you beat or a shit ton of speculative hands that crush you. I'm never folding but I don't think there is any value to be had here :f_drink:

      Why'd you discard the A and not the T? Don't play much 5cd but are the aces a lot less likely to be live?

      Not a lot may be, but definitely less. And even in this hand you see examples.
