This. To add a little more, too many turn scare cards kill action and/or are bricked turns for draws. Any J, Q, K, A, diamond, 4, or 8 can be action killers depending on villain hands. We want to get money in the pot while people still think they have good equity. UTG called a bet and raise cold. Let them call another raise with 5x, 7x, 88-99 or a gutshot while they still think their hand *might* be best or they think they have outs to the nuts.
I probably make the reraise smaller than usual to try to get both villains to tag along / feel priced in with their draws. Normally we try to price out draws but here, draws have no equity so we can bet smaller and hope they hit.
I like a flat here, check/raise the turn line ONLY if I am very certain that CO bets the turn on most turns (i.e. they have a 5 or JJ+) because it gives us the best relative position and sandwiches UTG.
