      0.3 AF .. He is a slowplay donkey and will slowplay his straight or 2pair even on this board. That said, I look him up nevertheless because Top2 is counterfeited and your bet and his raise is small.

      You should bet/fold on the turn.
      There are a lot of cards, that you don´t like (spade/7/J/A).
      If he raises on this board you have an easy fold, because he represents the straight or 2pair.

      as played i like b/f river. But your bet should be like 35-40$

      I would bet bigger on flop (~20). check on the turn is ok too I think against villain with such low AF as your hand still has some showdown value and you want to get there as cheap as possible. Against aggressive villain bet/fold turn seems better option to me. Maybe a blockbet would be the best on river, and calling if he minraises.

      hmm i think you are wrong:

      against a passiv villian b/f is perfect:
      - if he raises you will never fold a winner
      - he calls with a lot of worser Hand (draws/every T/kombo draws)
      - protection

      against a aggressiv villian is b/f more problematical:
      - he will ofter semi bluff/pure bluff => often, you will fold a winning Hand
