Bet the turn?

Game is 2/3 NL, $300 cap at the Bike on a Saturday night. Typical loose passive lineup of rec players. Effective stacks around $250. Hero covers.

Hero raises JJ UTG $15. CO calls. Pot after the drop $29.

Flop Ts4h6s. I bet $25. CO calls ($79).

Turn Ac. I check, CO checks.

My question here is should I be continuing the turn for value? There are lots of spade draws and some straight draws that villain can have. Yes, turn hits AsXs hands, but there are so many other suited hands that villain could be continuing with here.

Thoughts? Thanks.

    I like a turn check for pot control. Most of your villain’s range is 1-pair. As played, barring a river K, Q or T, I’m going for some thin value on the river, maybe $30-$35.

    Small point that doesn’t really impact my analysis too much: do you have the J?

    I did not.

    I'm not a real fan of checking for pot control in a cash game. If I'm going to get called by a draw, it will be on the turn, not the river, so (IMHO) the turn is the place where I can extract more value if Villain is on a draw.
