      1) I´d 3-bet larger to 1,2$. You maybe can b/f postflop if player is passive and you don´t expect him to raise there with AT or JJ, although getting all-in is also ok
      2) you can fold pf, since QTo you likely have to hit two pair to get paid and it is hard to play oop. Postflop is fine
      3) with trips I´d try to get all-in his stack postflop
      So I´d raise turn to 1,2$ and bet 3/4 pot on the river
