Many players believe that betting for information is inherently wrong. In fact, it is only terrible when the information received is worth less than the price paid. That could be because good players will try to devalue the informational value (unlikely at these stakes), or because you planned to play the hand the same or would have a similar EV from the hand with or without the information.

Part of the price paid might be the information that you give off in your quest for information. For example, if you have KK on the button on a dry ace-high flop, by betting you help JJ play the hand. You've gained information, namely that you were ahead of the JJ, but the information you've given off could prove more costly.

Betting for information is by no means inherently wrong.
