      Looking for an overcall on the flop, but then the turn gives me the nuts. If I bet into this, it telegraphs the trips at least, so I went for the check raise. No luck. Bet the river, and got a crying call. What do you think?

      Hi aciddrop!

      Hand 1) As you already mentioned: Nothing much to say here. Nice hand!

      Hand 2) I would definitely bet the turn here to build a pot because if one of them has an overpair he cannot fold it on this board. That means you are also getting more value on the river.

      Good luck at the tables!
