      Hi,


      Not sure i don't play on party anymore, i think at the beginning you needed to get quads+ cracked to take it down.

      As for the hand just bomb the flop and hope he has AA or AK, no reason to check that back since you don't have top pair blockers which means he could very well have a K, so you want money in the pot and you want it fast.

      As played raise the turn.


      Hope it helps.

      Hi,


      Usually these players like to be in control so much that if you don't bet they will, and if you do bet they will often raise anyway, so betting is the nuts when you have trips on a not so dry board.


      Hope it helps.
