      There's no point in betting the Turn

      1) No value from worse hands - When he raises the Flop he reps something which is either a bluff, a semi bluff or a stronger made hand
      2) you open yourself up to getting blown off the hand.

      You should check the Turn and decide what to do on the River. If you are going to put in an extra bet anyway, you might as well use it to call a River bet instead of bet yourself on the Turn.
