      Hello all.

      What I wanted to ask:
      Is this line is OK to play?

      My reasoning for this line is that Villain
      almost never should have trips here,
      but sometimes at this limit - it is WRONG,
      (some fish play super-straight-forward)!

      What do you generally think about this line on the flop?

      Should I just call w/ JJ in a second hand?
      Or sometimes also shove for balancing reasons?
      Or - never shove?


      Thank you!

      1) 3-way don´t think Sb is making too many moves there and if get called you have close to 0 equity, so I don´t really like your shove there
      2) don´t again like shove, since he is either bluffing or having Ax hand
      If you think he is bluffing you can always just b/c and then shove over his turn bet. Don´t see him c/r there him too often with KQ that has some equity against your hand
