      0.02/0.04 No-Limit Hold'em (3 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant.Base 0.96 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is BB with 6:heart: , 5:club:
      BU calls $0.04, SB folds, Hero checks.

      Flop: ($0.10) 5:heart: , 5:spade: , 3:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU checks.

      Turn: ($0.10) A:heart: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.08, BU raises to $0.16, Hero raises to $0.32, BU calls $0.16.

      River: ($0.74) 4:heart: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.35, BU calls $0.35.

      Final Pot: $1.44

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      BU shows (Ac 7d)
      Hero shows three-of-a-kind, fives (6h 5c)

      Hero wins with three-of-a-kind, fives (6h 5c)

      Turn: I think he likely has the A here. Not many other hands that I think would check flop, then min raise turn. Is it ok to raise small here? As I thought he would likely call a small raise with an A but nothing too large?

      River: Value bet bigger here? Not a nice river card to as it completes both SD's and FD's so I bet small hoping to get a call from an A.

      Anything I should have done different?

      Since I think Bu isn´t really folding his Ax hand, then I´d raise turn bigger to 0.5-0.6$ and put him all-in on the river.
      This way you gain more value.
      I think you can also bet bigger on the river although half potsize bet is also fine

      Hello Jeffers16,

      Just bet the flop, he is a station so he will likely even Call with just some high. Otherwise I'd raise a lot bigger on turn, ~$0,70 and likely bet for value on river as well.

      Best regards.
