      Final Pot: $24.75.

      Results follow:

      Hero shows three of a kind, aces(Ks Ac).
      MP2 shows three of a kind, aces(As 3s).

      Hero wins with three of a kind, aces(Ks Ac).

      Is it ridiculous to check the turn when the flush comes in here? I'm continuously in spots like this where I'm sure they're drawing to a flush and when it comes in a freeze and don't feel comfortable. He's not horribly loose but loose enough where there are a lot of suited cards in his cold calling range. 65 hands could be misleading though.

      I think calldown is ok, but I would bet myself for value on the flop or at least c/ flop for value
      Just if you start c/c, you never can be sure where you´re at with your hand

      Sorry Kaitz, I didn't understand exactly what you suggested here. You mean you like a cb on the flop and ch/C the T?

      Once we ch/C his pot-size bet on the T we still have to ch/f the River on a 7 or a :heart: I think, right? Even though we have less than pot left.

      Kaitz,

      I did actually bet the flop for value. Basically what I'm wondering is this: What is the standard line on the turn when the flush comes in and I have a strong hand like trips, top kicker?

      Bet/folding seems pretty weak, and bet/shoving could possibly be a bit of an overplay.
      Do I check/call turn and jam any non heart, non 7/T river?

      my bad, I misread the hand
      Thought hero was somehow c/c flop
      I think c/c turn is fine. you can get sometimes free showdown. Sucks to b/f there with that kind of equity and if you think he is bluffing you can c/c river

      yeah, realized now you bet on the flop :)
      I like c/c turn and checking river
      If you shove river only flush/boats would call you, maybe sometimes Ax
      but Ax might shove himself there, so I think you can´t fold your hand but at the same time you likely doesn´t have too much value by shoving yourself
