      Final Pot: $22.25.

      Villain smells fishy 50/21 after ~30 hands

      I should have raised more preflop to ~5.50 methinks but would like some feedback on flop and turn play.

      I think your pre-flop raise size is fine, you've 3-bet the original raiser and 3 more for the cold callers.

      On the flop i would probably 3-bet and if he shoves then i'd probably have to give it up. His small bet is very fishy but once you call and a K doesn't come on the turn then you are still none the wizer. You were the aggressor pre-flop so i think that should continue post flop.

      his line is so strange
      I like flop and turn calls, since they are so cheap
      Don´t think he always shove river with his trips, so he should bluff enough times to call there
