      Against this opponent, should I c/c turn instead of b/f(b/c?)
      OOP but I had decent equity.

      If raised, I was tough spot but had strong hand.

      Don't bet the Turn. you cannot bet for value here, as hands which are calling you on the Turn will be a favourite vs you (2pairs or QX or straights). And we also don't want to get raised off our hand.

      While we may have a lot of equity, I am still treating our hand as a made hand and not as a semi-bluff. If you want to bet the Turn you have to fire a ton of rivers and turn your hand into a bluff.
