Either fold or reraise allin preflop.
I think calling preflop is a bad move here. I mean you put aroun 25% of your chips in the middle of the table to call, take in consideration you hit trips less than 5% of the times, you are also out of position.
What's your strategy if you didn't hit trips?
Check/fold to the likely oppo continuation bet (wasting 25% of your stack)? You bet first? And what if get called or raised?
By calling you get caught in a bads situation: fortunately you hit your 4 but consider what if you didn't.
anyway this is just my opinion
PS: when I read threads like "opinions on this hand" I reply without reading other mobster posts not to be conditioned by other people opinions ...but after I wrote I read just realized I wrote a duplicate of Shokaku's post

In line with the above posters I would say shove or fold also.
Personally, considering the stack sizes and the bet the opponent here made pre-flop, I would fold this hand. You really don't want to see a flop in this position and if you shove ull probably get called since the guy already shown he has a big hand with that bet.
If the opponent is tight fold definitely , if hes loose , do you really want to risk your tourney with a small pair?
Anyway, you called and hit trips, unfortunately there's also a flush and straight draw there. Again, personally, ( I'm sure there's a lot of different opinions here and some might come to show me how wrong I am ) I would check/fold this hand.
On these PS privilege free-rolls everything should be push or fold until you get ITM. There is no reward here to try to beat your opponents post-flop. Cuz it's a silly tourey with a truckload of participants, there isn't anything to overthink there. So you only have to decide on what range would you start 2 push.

If you using stats mate, do not use too much at the same time as this could make information overload and you could be just hindering yourself from playing properly, my advice is to get less stats and only add more stats when you are more familiar with them and get enough time to think about those stats and do not play a lot of hands. But you already on the right tack if you using stats. Anyway good luck mate at the tables hope you win some cash!
