      We have 2nd pair so we can still get called by hands that we beat including worse pairs and draws. I'll usually decide between bet/folding and check/folding depending on how aggressive these guys will be on later streets.

      If they're just randomly betting every time they get a piece and semibluffing draws, it's a pain in the ass to get to showdown so I'll just check/fold.

      If I expect them to play straight forward, I'll bet the flop for value and possibly bet the turn for value as well if it's HU at that point, otherwise start checking it down expecting to see a showdown without too much trouble if my hand is good.

      Hope it helps.
