      Hello nktns,

      Preflop: What's the specific reason for raising only $0.30? I would likely just make it $0.40-$0.50.

      As played
      Flop: CBet is way too small, I would advice to look over your bet sizings, seems that you have a leak in it. I would likely make it ~$0.50. The board is pretty good for a CBet.
      Turn: Pretty good card for a 2nd card, since he still might fold some weaker pairs while the Ace came up and also it gave us a GS so I wouldn't mind to 2nd barrel here and hope he is capable of laying down his Kx type of hand but what doesn't happen that often. Bet sizing is fine.

      Best regards.

      pre raise 0.3$ because goal this time is avoid action from bb not building pot. if i had better hand would raise it more. Exploitable? Yes. Will someone exploit on NL10? Rarely.
      Same goes for cbet. this time it may be a bit too less, but again, i don't see reason to bet big. if he's going to fold on this board, he's gonna do it + 2nd barrels become cheaper.

      Yes, your comments are reasonable but you saying that nobody can explore your raise on NL10? Just take a look, you are playing NL10 and you really think that you are only one who has such skills and knows that much about poker? I rarely think so, I often expect to find a lot players who think exactly like you think and I even know myself few buddies who are playing on lower limits and they exactly in such situtions note down because I have teached them to do that. :)
