      I think bet on turn is fine but u may as well check behind and get urself free card if u are behind against some higher pairs and u may as well induce soem small bluffs or they will call u down lighter

      Rebuy to 100bb.

      I'm not betting the turn because i don't feel good calling a check/shove, i don't think people are getting excited with less than a set in that spot, except maybe if they have AsTx or something. And getting blown off OESD+overpair+J-high FD would really sucks. I'd much rather check back and call a reasonable bet on a blank river.

      If he's a calling station and will often call with a ton of crap on the turn but only raise with the mortal nuts than bet/folding the turn is fine.

      Hope it helps.
