      Pacific, $0.05/$0.10 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 5 Players

      BTN: $12.54 (125.4 bb)
      SB: $1.90 (19 bb)
      Hero (BB): $13.72 (137.2 bb)
      MP: $9.98 (99.8 bb)
      CO: $10 (100 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with A K
      2 folds, BTN calls $0.10, SB completes, Hero raises to $0.60, BTN calls $0.50, SB folds

      Flop: ($1.30) A T 7 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.97, BTN raises to $1.94, Hero calls $0.97

      Turn: ($5.18) T (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $0.10, Hero calls $0.10

      River: ($5.38) 9 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN checks

      $5.38 pot ($0.26 rake)
      Final Board: A T 7 T 9
      BTN showed A 4 and lost (-$2.64 net)
      Hero showed A K and won $5.12 ($2.48 net)

      Villain is a fish. I'm thinking he might have some AT in his range so I choose the pot control option. Is c/c turn and river fine? Should I have raised his turn bet?

      Hi Tommy,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: Given his small turn bet I'd prefer a raise there for value. If we were to get raised on the turn rather than flop we could bet/fold.

      I think that overall, with 0 info, this may be ok but with some info I think we are playing this a bit too weak. I'd raise turn and bet river, or as played possibly donk river into him.

      I'd just call that flop raise as you did and prepare to ch/fold or ch/call turn, but when he bets so little he always has a weak hand there, so definitely raise for value and keep on going at river.

      And some more information than just "fish" would help a lot here :D
