      Hello,

      I'd bet more on flop ~$5 and Bet/Call the turn vs such opponent.

      Best regards,

      Such? His AF is 1,1. Not seen moving anything, etc.

      It's still too small :P , people got much higher AF in 6max.

      Because of oppoennt stack size I´d likely bet/call turn, because he might do taht with any draw or Jx, he has there some times 8x, but don´t think he´d play most of times his trips that way.

      If not this way, then what way would he play his trips? :baby:

      He would bet hoping you have J and wanting to protect vs draws.

      C/r is well... a lot more things then trips. Trips and 55 beat you, the rest (AJ, JK, JQ, draws) doesn't. Hence its a call because he will have a worse hand more of the times then he has a better hand.

      Also do you think his hand range includes 8x from the blind? Not very likely. Which leaves us with 55.
      55 would c/r flop or lead out flop because of board texture.
      And if he would have 55 I think he'd just call turn and lead out river since he doesn't have to protect against anything.

      So... overall you should be ahead.

      I asked you what way would he play trips, and you didn't answer. Btw, the answer is : THIS WAY.

      Likely he would lead out turn or c/r less, smt to 20$.
      But I don´t say that he can´t also shove.
      Just when they shove it seems more draw than made hand.
      And getting there 2,75:1 I´d likely call, rather than fold.

      In too late, but personally i think an 8 is definately in his range, loose passive types can definately call an 8 pre and they are definately not folding any kind of draw or pair on the flop. But to try and get into the head of a player like this and narrow down their range is a bit of a waste of time when they don't knwo either so i bet/call here also.
