Against a nitty opponent who open raise from UTG, I might check turn to control the pot and get to showdown as it's possible they might have AQ. However, now there is a straight draw + flush draw on board, draws are most likely going to continue here so you should bet to make them pay for their draw. Betting can also get worst Ax hands to continue and TPTK is quite often still good here.
