Trips

Fortune Jack Poker

Trips is a three-of-a-kind in which there is a pair on the board and you are holding a third card with the same rank.

Example

Your Hand
Nine of ClubsAce of Spades
The Flop
Three of ClubsNine of SpadesNine of Hearts

The above flop gives you trip Nines. If there is another pair on the board, you will make a full house.

Difference between trips and sets.

If two of the three cards are in your hands rather than being on the board, you have a set instead. When you hit trips, you must be mindful of the strength of your kicker as there is a chance that your opponent also have the same trips but with a better kicker, giving you the second best hand - the worse case scenario in poker.
