      BB checks, Hero bets $4.15 (All-In), 4 folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $4.35

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows three of a kind, aces (Ah Qc)

      Hero wins with three of a kind, aces (Ah Qc)

      since there are two spades (and also so many opponents left) i decided to push. what if i get a rainbow flop instead? should I then play check/raise or slowplay to increase the pot? I dont think its likely that anything can beat trips on a dry flop

      "should I slowplay" -> no.
      "nothing beats trips" -> 55, which is not unlikely at all since people love calling with low pockets

      conclusion: play as played :)

      its not a set , its trips

      i think slowplay is fine

      a) opponts have no reason to get suspicious, you would cf a lot of hands here
      b) there is just one draw, most opponten will have 0-2 outs
      c) you will get all in until the river anyway with a pot that huge
