      CO showed 5 K and won $79.23 ($39.24 net)
      Hero showed A Q and lost (-$39.99 net)

      Vilain is a standard fish 37/20 2,0 AF

      No cbet on flop because dry and don't want to isolate vs trips ten. Plus I don't need to protect my hand most of time when I have the best hand and I can stack off the fish in two street.
      I decide to bet turn strong on turn ( could bet even stronger ?) for value. On the river, vilain lead and I don't like that. But I can't fold right ?

      He has more worse AX than TX in his range. I think this is a clear bet bet bet situation.

      There are 2 Ts and 2 As left in the deck on the Flop. I think he can have all suited Aces preflop and maybe even some weak offsuit Aces like A9 A8 A7 AJ. I don't think he has that many TX hands besides the broadways and T9s.
