And in situations like these, I've been doing a lot of checking behind at micro limits. Players will slowplay trips on this board EVERYTIME. However, they're also almost always folding 33-88 to more than 1 bet. So betting the turn really only gets value out of TT and flush draws.
Maybe at higher limits, where they realize that you could be value-betting a lower pair, or bluffing
more often on the turn should we be betting the turn. But at micros, I only really bet the turn here if there's a draw out. In this case there is, so I like a bet that's small enough to keep the pot manageable, but large enough to give a flush draw incorrect odds
