      I have to say that this was a complet ERROR , I play tight sss but I had a fish at the table 89 vpip :f_eek: and said I have a hand that is much over his hand range and on the flop I hit trips but the fish folded and a 28 vpip called my raise....
      Just want to know if I should folded or just to go all in on the flop...
      And another thing I think I`m always going to cash out when I double my 2$ on a table..cus` it's too risky to play when I`m doubled , sometime I lose 4$ with AA :s_cry:

      First of all please don't post the hand results as it negatively affects the way in which your hand will be judged.

      Secondly calling in sss is a SIN!! (well 99.99% of the time). If you have really good reads on both opponents then you could try taking the pot preflop with a raise. However I believe this will still be a marginal play at best, especially considering you're double-stacked.

      So frankly fold preflop.

      As played: bet at least $1.2 on the flop. I like to shove turn here as at NL10 most fish will will prob call with draws. So you get both protection and value.

      p.s. when considering re-raises, you should also take the sample size of your opponents into consideration. To make a decent decision you need more than a hundred hands for the VPIP stat. Obv. the more marginal your decision the more hands you need for greater accuracy. It is also better to use an opponents positional PFR/VPIP stat.

      Hey En3rGie21,

      fold preflop. It's a marginal spot and specially an inexperienced player can loose money when making such moves. You have to consider you will not only play the fish if you call as you saw in this hand.

      As played, raise flop to 1.5$ and shove turn.

      Regards,
