To be honest, this comes up a lot, and this is my usual play if the pot is multiway and the board is cooridinated.

Anyone lead out?

I think your line is ok. Trying to shut out people when OOP on the flop you need to bet more than I would be comfortable with.

If a less scary card comes on the turn I think you should bet out.

Top pair, no kicker, I check this also with 4 people in the pot in level one.

The problem with betting out the turn is the range of hands that will call me. Even if the 2 /images/graemlins/spade.gif falls, I'm going to get called by a ton of hands. Once I get called, the river is going to be almost impossible to play. I'm going to get bluffed off by anyone who wants to. Any attempt at a blocking/value bet is certainly -ev.

Yeah, there is no way you can continue when that turn card comes. The only reason you wouldn't open/fold is b/c you do have some minute showdown value if everyone keeps checking (or you see a minbet or two)....now, if the turn card is a 5 then I think you can continue with the hand.
