betting the flop or the turn?
In limit games people will always call even with weak hands. Let's say I have a modest two-pair on the flop and I bet, I've found that I would have to then bet the turn and the river in an attempt to get the other players to muck.
The problem is, if I bet the flop, I'm basically forced to bet the turn and the river otherwise the other players will bet because they sense my hand has weakened and they start getting aggressive.
My concern is if I bet all the way to the river, I'm basically investing 6 big blinds which in a game like, say, 4-8 kill, translates to $24 invested into a marginal hand.
Would it have been better to check the flop, bet the turn and river? Doing would mean I invest 5 big blinds instead of 6.
