      He is playing 19/16/3.5/24 3bet-5 and fold to 3bet 86.
      I decided to mix it up a little given the fact he has such a high fold to 3bet value and i want to start loosening up my game. I flop trips and assume i'm ahead 99% of the time.Should i bet the turn too?I wanted to check-raise ..but he raises river and looks really strong.Can i fold here?

      Imho, the only hand that fits his betting is TT. This player would likely be knocked off 77. The check on the turn may indicate that he's scared of larger op and wants a cheap showdown.

      Otherwise, this looks to me like he's holding a big ace, and thinks you can be knocked off of AK, AQ JJ-AA here, which he likely assumes is the limit of your 3 betting range. He can't give you credit for a 9.

      The pot odds aren't horrible for a river call either. I think you are ahead more than half of the time on the river.

      I'm never folding the river here, but I'm a payoff wizard.

      I would bet again on the turn, since he´d often check back turn with his middle pp-s and you don´t get enough value with your trips
      I would also call river, your´hand is good enough times when he is bluffing or maybe slowplayed overpair.
