      Hi,


      Against a passive unknown i'd just bet/fold the turn for like half pot, he might have a top pair or some sort of two pairs that he's willing to call another bet with but he won't raise those on a 4-straight board.

      Against somebody more aggressive, whether he's a fish or not, it's probably a good idea to just check it back because they could raise a turn bet with hands that you beat, forcing you to fold the best hand and your boat draw.


      Hope it helps.
