If a TAG doesn't play 19/11 - what does he play?
There's really no reason to ever slowplay a flopped straight. If you're not getting action then you must be at the nittiest .01/.02 table in history -- table select better.
The only reason to ever slowplay is if you just consume the board -- you have QQ on Q22r (even then, if you are playing optimally, you will get people to float you). When you flop a straight the nice thing is you block 0% of people's continuing range -- especially a straight on a two-tone board. People will have top pair, 2 pair, sets, combo draws and straight draws to put money in the pot with.
More than half the deck is a scare card that will either kill action or beat you -- don't slowplay flopped straights.
TAGs play 19/17 or so. 19/11 is passive by any definition at any stakes. I'd also guess that your 3-bet% is under 4%.
