      Villian is 73/5/1.2 after 205 hands.

      I never know how to play that kind of hand...
      Is this overplay??? I mean should I play passive with trips?? I lost lots of money with that kind of hand. Would you ever consider here folding vs fish?

      Without any indication that these guys will bet at the flop I'd just lead out against draws and to start building a pot against Qx hands that he most likely won't be able to fold at any point.

      As played it's a bit gross with no kicker, I guess if you don't see villain as particularly trappy you can fold to the 4-bet, often he'll have exactly 55. Otherwise it's possible he has "slowplayed" stuff like KK+ or even good top pairs that he just thinks are the nuts, in which case we're hardpressed to fold trips.

      Hope it helps.

      Either 3bet less on turn and fold to a 4bet.

      Or call the raise and bet/fold river.
