When you are holding pocket pair you are trying to make your 'SET' not trips ok??? Trips is when you have something like Q,9 preflop...then the flop is Q, Q, 6 then you made trips. LOL...how pedantic am I???? HAHAHHAHAHA

Yeh, you made a set when you get that 3rd Q on the flop... But you have trips.

Don't feel so bad because I tend to think of the terms "set" and "trips" the same way as you.

There you go! I always assumed Sets where quads but your basically saying they are 3 of a kind of a different kind. I really dislike poker jargon its worse than another laugage. Still... thanks for the heads up.

This is true enough in regards to the current lingo. I prefer "3 of a kind" as it is inclusive to both situations. Then again, I prefer "tight"---- over "fullhouse" or "boat" and that is just because I like the connotation of the word in relation to the hand! Poker lingo is neat. It is good to learn all variations of the names of hands so you know wtf people are talking about at the table, when they bother to speak:) Play well.

I prefer sets to trips because they are harder to spot when playing ... anyone can see the obvious trips, but I have been caught out a lot when someone turns over a set and beats my kk or aa

Call it what you will. I prefer the tem set as well for pp that hits the board. But doesnt really bother me one way or another.
