      flop - i think i should bet more, like 1/1.1
      turn - 2 guys with very low AF called me so on the flop so i thought i am already behind, also i the pot is 4.1 and i have 5.5 left. if i bet here i will be commited. playing for stacks with TPTK vs 2 guys is... not me
      river - flush completed. and BB made a pot size bet. he played this hand exacly like fishy FD. check/call flop, check turn, big bet river. so i just folded even though i made a trips

      - pf I raise to 0.50-0.60 since we have very loose players at table.
      - I bet pot size on very drawy flop vs 2 loose opp. Loose players specialize in calling smallish bets with draws and sucking out.
      - Turn: Bet near pot size for protection. They are hoping you give them free cards, make them pay.
      - BB will not be induced to bluff on river after you bet strong 2 streets so if he pot bets you can think of a fold, unless you are committed already.

      Bet turn for value/protection.
      I think I´d call river bet, since he would also bet pot sometimes with Tx, sometimes with pure bluff.
