The initial raiser in this hand was in a mild tilt from a hand with me earlier when she limped early with unsuited Aces and hit trip threes. I had Queens full. She had been bumping up pots ever since, and by the time the betting above got to me, I was priced in and wishing for a 9-10 flop.
It's 56%/44% preflop between the two of us; 42%/58% on the flop, and I knew he either had an 8 or pocket sixes. Of course, the turn clinched it, and his response was "Nice one-outer," to which I advised him to "Look again."
We now had two steamers at the table, but I had chores to do and left shortly.
I don't get too excited about trips in NLHE, and just a little more frisky in Omaha. So, one might ask, why did I call his pot bet on the flop knowing that he either had a made hand or possibly a better eight? Only because I had nine cards to make a boat, or a better boat. To my mind, I still had a great drawing hand, and as long as an A or K didn't come along with my card, I would see it to the end.
Now, when the eight fell, wouldn't you think the other player would have taken notice? He now had eights full. If I have sevens in the hole, he's dead. To my mind, one protects the flopped underfull and prepare to muck thereafter.
