      I bet the turn to protect vs. draws and take the free showdown

      But what about if op has an A? You would build a big pot just for a pair of jacks with an over card on the flop. If he called flop with second pair now he beats you again with trips. There is not so much what you can beat here. Of course apart total bluff that was in this situation.
