      I don't like to bet the Turn on this card cos it doesn't change the board in any way.


      you think he floats flop with a lot of overcards like A5 A3 KQ JT, which will all fold to a Turn bet.

      As played, river could go either way. Against a weak player you can just bet all high cards and he will also put you on a flush here very often.

      Against a paranoid calling station betting here is bad cos he just thinks you are trying to rep the high card and are full of it.

      When you bet half pot, you need him to fold 33% of the time. I think you could potentially get him to fold enough of the time so I think it's fine.
