Yeah definitely raise pre... C-bet after first two players checks is fine if he was going for a steal.. then the worst part is the call when button decides to shove giving him about 2;1 on his money.. which his bad since he needs 33% to make the call good and has about 25 % chance of winning if he puts his opponent on a two pair. so calling is bad IMO... unless opponent is shoving wide which is not the case
Be sure to give plenty of detail about the hand and situation when asking for advice. Including the hand history is a good idea.
