      Hi!

      Any hints how to not payoff your opponents with TPTK?

      Players on 2/4 are much much more aggressive compare to 1/2 and yesterday I started on $2/4SH with pretty 65BB down...

      So I gave it try and will try it again (soon) hopefully, coz I have to move down limit.

      Im no limit player, but given the pot odds in those hands how could you possibly ever get off TPTK? Im not sure I could fold TPTK on the river for $4 at a $64 pot even if the player showed me the trips first.

      Question is rather if fold it on river, to turn raise... coz I will have to pay 2 additional BigBets.... but if observant openet realize that I fold to much to river bet he will start abuse it...
