      Preflop: Hero is SB with A, 9.
      7 folds, Hero raises to $0.75, BB calls $0.50.

      Flop: ($1.5) K, T, K (2 players)
      Hero checks, BB checks.

      Turn: ($1.5) A (2 players)
      Hero checks, BB bets $0.75, Hero calls $0.75.

      River: ($3) A (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.50, BB calls $0.50.

      Final Pot: $4.

      villain is 11/9 after 500 hands, fold to steal 90%, low aggression
      I don't cbet as I expect many floats and instead I wanted to check/raise.
      On the turn I don't see any more value in check/raise. I don't want to get my bet raised so I just c/c.
      On the river I was lost, wanted to induce a raise but I had to c/r or bet 2/3 - 3/4? How would I or him play lower pockets in this situation?
      What do you think?
      Thank you for opinions

      since you hold there A high I would still prefer c-bet, since he would likely fold his small pp-s
      You can go for c/r, but if get called you´re really lost and either building big pot with A high or have to c/f
      I think c/c turn is fine. Since your hand doesn´t look like Ax I´d likely would c7r river to let him bluff all of his hands.
      If you´re going to bet, make it 2$, if he has there Kx or tx he might look you up
