Check a street.
If there are no draws, check back the flop.
If there are draws and your opponent is aggressive, consider checking through the turn with the intention of snapping off a bluff if the draw misses on the river.
The reason hand strength increses so much on drawy boards is everyone bets into them really hard.. so hard in fact that all lesser hands are forced out. Most people bet the turn so big that no draw can really call, they often still do but the result is all the other hands in his range are forced out and so you end up against a range that usually plays well against TPTK
