Both villains are unknowns, SB was playing 2 tables, BB 1 table

My question about this hand is really simple: What do you think our turn play should be when he checks again? His 3bet sizing is pretty bad given that we play 190BB deep and his check call, check line on that board also looks kind of fishy. Can we continue betting for value against worse 1 pair hands and for protection against AQ or AJ? Or is it generally better to check behind and see what he does on the river?

Hi Tommy,

I would bet again... the line looks a lot like a big ace peeling or a showdown value hand which could be ahead of us (AT, JJ) or behind us (QT/JT/99/88/77). And a small chance of a flopped set slow playing. I see no great reason to give another free card to worse hands, lose value from showdown value holdings, and if we get check-raised now it's an easy fold imo, so I'd bet again.
