A straight forward player who rarely bluffs (most players at micro limits) aren't going to bet a hand worse than ace high. So by checking the hand down, I can often win without risking any money in case they're slowplaying something, ect. And if I bet with ATo, then all those KQ hands are folding. So there's no value in betting. I'm just paying ~2/3 of the pot to keep them from drawing at their 20% equity. It doesn't make sense.
But with JT, the only way I can win is to bet. I really can't even beat a bluff.
FP made a really great blog post about betting very marginal hands. Lemme see if I can find it.
