Oh, it wasn't clear from your initial post. You asked if you should slow play and let people catch up, which I think is just a ridiculous thing to do at like 10NL and below.
I suppose that in that situation I gave there could be a reason not to bet based on someones stats. Like if they are a 8/8 tag who bets every street when they bet but they fold to reraises 95% or something. So basically that person has AA-TT and they will bet the whole way and you can call down and then rr at the end. That would be risky but maybe the optimal play against someone like that if you knew that is how they played.
Again, way too complicated to ever apply at 10NL or below.
