      A dream flop in 3-way pot against two regs...I asumed that at least one of them is definitely holding an A....I think that going broke right on the flop is the best line here, because our equity is really good and if the turn comes A, K, Q, J, T i could be in trouble without really being capable to lay the hand down...

      You don't lose much value from worse hands by raising anyway, since it's pretty clear once 3 people continue after the flop that it's no spot to bet less than Ax on the turn. Still, raising shows so much strength that even regs with bad trips will usually be able to get away from that by the river.

      I wouldn't mind just overcalling and seeing what happens on the turn, when the original raiser checks back usually there wasn't a lot of money to be made anyway as IIIIIIIIID probably has some kind of pocket pair he was calling once on the flop with. If IIIIIIIIIIID has trips and the turn is checked back he will lead with them and with position we can raise him, which he'll probably call just because paying off means seeing the showdown.

      It's fine either way, just don't based your play solely on the fact that you might get 3-outed.

      Hope it helps.
