Say you have A♠ A♥. Regardless of the action pre-flop, let's say the flop comes A♦ T♦ 9♣ and the action is on you. On a wet board like this, you probably want to bet to protect your hand and perhaps build the pot since you have a monster. However, If you bet an amount close to the full pot or even over bet the pot, you're most likely forcing your skillful opponent to fold his potential draws since he would be making a -EV play by calling. On the other hand, if you bet an amount like 1/2 to 3/4 the pot, your opponent can still make a call with +EV. From your perceptive, that can be a good thing since you got the largest equity and you're (supposedly) willing to build a bigger pot.
Which of the two lines of thinking is more sound? Force a -EV play or a fold? or allow a +EV play while building a bigger pot when you got the edge?
P.S. For simplicity, let's say you're almost positive that your opponent has K♦Q♦
