      Known players: (for a description of vp$ip, pfr, ats, folded bb, af, wts, wsd or hands click here)      

      0,10/0,25 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Texas Grabem 1.8 by www.pokerstrategy.cc.

      Preflop: Hero is BB with Q:diamond: , 6:heart: . MP3 posts a blind of $0,25.
      4 folds, MP3 checks, CO folds, BU calls $0,25, SB folds, Hero checks.

      Flop: ($0,85) Q:spade: , 5:diamond: , Q:club: (3 players)
      Hero checks, MP3 checks, BU bets $0,50, Hero calls $0,50, MP3 folds.

      Turn: ($1,85) T:spade: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0,75, BU folds.

      Final Pot: $2,60

      I don´t know how to play trips. I think that check/call might be the not the best here, maybe check/min re-raise; push turn. Or bet out 0,50 cents and then bet again on the turn (that means that I would be called only flush draw or another Qx).

      Hi Kaitz20!

      I would bet the flop and hope for a raise. If you get called (even a 5 or pocket pair might call you) you can bet on the turn again to build the pot and go all-in on the river. Like you played it: I would bet more (~$1.20) on the turn. Your bet looks very suspicious.

      Good luck at the tables!
