      bet/fold is better, because if you are ahead you get max. value. If you are beat you can fold to a raise and so you don´t have to call another bet on the river.
      After betting the turn you might know where u stand with your hand. ;)

      I understand what you mean, but wouldn't that have less expected outcome against villains like these ?
      A bet would have to be higher than the 3.5 $ I invested and a call would be very unlikely. In the case of a call, they probably will bet the river if I check oop, which I have to fold.
      In case of me actually having the best hand and they playing normally, they'd fold on the turn, but then I wouldn't take anything out of it either as I did now ?

      It just seems more expensive than giving initiative away to villain who suckerbet (worse than donkbet ^^)
