      Raise flop for value/protection, your T is well disguised, if he pushes you call.

      but I think call is playable too. But at least push turn then.

      Guys I can't see any worse hands calling here actually if I push, flush draw sometimes only, but I doubt he's donking it with 3 players in the pot.

      Nah imo that's not true. Any pocket pair may call you.

      I think raising it preflop is fine. SB is a super fish, and BB is aggressive. So when you hit trips on the flop, really you are playing for stacks.

      Just calling the flop is ok, but I am going on the turn, and if has KT, QT or AT, so be it.

      Turn raise is imo too strong, once you call flop, you should also call turn.
      I´d raise flop, representing draw, sometimes AK, sometimes overpair, he would shove there sometimes draw and trips.
      Calldown is also fine, since you don´t have the nuts and he likely has missed draw or Tx- he won´t call your river shove with missed draw and he could easily have better Tx.
