I would say you should bet the turn here. It will at least give you some more information.

If we don't bet here, we will almost certainly be getting pushed out on the river.

Grunch...

Bet/fold this turn. Re-evaluate on the river, but I'd be cautious. If he calls our turn bet and then checks the river, I'd be inclined to check behind against a total unknown.

What about checking behind on this turn and calling a river bet? We get to showdown for 1 bet, there's no much harm in giving a free card here, and our hand isn't good most of the time.

Bet/fold the turn is the standard play I think, but I think that checking behind should be done occasionally to throw off opponents and make them realize that they can't just check-raise all of their made draws on you on the turn. By checking behind you force them to donkbet the turn more.

Bet the turn and take the free showdown.

By the way, is anyone else inclined to not raise the flop? I think that raise helps a pair of tens find a fold, and tend to think that raising only brings better hands along with us in later streets. WA/WB anyone?
