      This is a common spot I'm not sure about. I'm never sure if we can bet the turn for thin value or check/call is best.
      The A is a card I would bluff so I want to bet as he may call me light, and there are draws as well. But is it reasonable to expect any value here?, if we check/call we're inviting him to fire the river as our range looks super weak but I hate bluff catching at these stakes.

      What's a standard line when we have initiative but less than top pair, oop?

      I won't even bet the flop at all. When you are 3way, betting Flop basically isolates you vs a range which beats you. Just check and hope BU checks back. If he bluffs we can c/c. If he bets and other guy calls we can c/f.
