This is a discussion on Advice within the online poker forums, in the Learning Poker section; I have a question if I had the nuts on the turn should I go all-in or should I slow play wait for the River
Exactly right, every situation is different, and it is your opponents play that tells you what you should do.
Do you have the nuts no matter what happens on the river (100% equity)? Obviously you want to extract as many chips as possible. Giving your opponent one more card to build a hand cannot hurt you. Betting and getting a fold is the last thing you want. As already stated, this is especially good if your opponent will bet for you. For me I will ALWAYS right size (maximize my bets to guarantee a call, whether it be for the turn and river or just the river. Again there is no point in getting a fold. If he will call an all-in then go for it. If an all-in will get a fold, then don't do this. If a minimum bet is the only bet that will get a call, then I guess this is your best bet.
Or is it only the nuts based on the board at the moment? A nut flush is beat by a boat and boats generally happen on the river. An A high flush has a ton of equity (>85%), but isn't the nuts until we see no paired board on the river. A player with 2 pr or a set has 10 outs to a boat+, which is about 20% chance. So, technically you do not have the nuts yet. Based on your opponents play are you worried about this possibility? If so, would he call a shove with a set or 2 pair? In this situation, a small value bet has a small amount of risk. Obviously, a large bet may win now, and miss out on some value. relative stacks also tell you a piece of this story...and on and on and on.
It is important to know the number of chips you and your opponent have, if there is a chance to get a bet from your opponent (on the river) and get more chips, all in on the turn is not the best solution If the opponent is weaker and the river does not give him anything, it is better to play all in and not show the card to the opponent good luck

Depends on a few factors
#1 what is the stack to pot ratio (do you need to build the pot to get all in by the river?
#2 what is the nature of your nuts (can they be outdrawn or are they a lock?)
#3 how aggressive or bluffy is your opponent (can you induce them to bet into you?)
