      Raise it up preflop, he's playing a ton of trash hands, A5o is way ahead of his range for limp/calling, he'll limp/fold a lot too and we're fine with that, plus when he calls we have position with a decent hand so we'll destroy him in the long run.

      Postflop is fine, there is no way we're folding ours trips with the best possible kicker against the limping range of a 51/26/3 barring a very accurate read that he's never c/c c/raising worse there, and that's highly unlikely. These players can show up with some 6x, a few draws, worse 5x and probably most overpairs in that spot figuring they're being tricky and all.

      If you think there is a good chance he's bluffing also (not so likely given the line he took) or that you 3betting might scare him off a worse made hand (unlikely), calling the turn in position to let him continue with whatever hand he has might be better sometimes, but by default i'd play it like you did, maybe 3betting a little less on the turn.

      Hope it helps.
