      You should be raising pre, why are you limping?

      Then bet 3/4pot on flop, bet big on the turn, raise if he bets, you need to figure out the best way to get it in, so leave prolly like 3/4 pot bet behind for river shove or something, if he raises turn and u can credibly get stacks in get it in there.

      You are raising preflop so that you can get your stacks in with the best hand postflop.

      Preflop: Since the opponents from NL2 don't really recognize with what you limp or either note you down then sometimes it's fine to just open-limp with smaller PPs since also the SHC says so but my own view I am not really a big fan of that since you are going to play on higher limits with PPs only with open-raising since they will just note you down that you open-limp with PPs.
      Flop: Bet pot for protection and also building up the pot.
      Turn: I'd raise bigger here, ~$0.40.
      River: Could be that he is on flushdraw on turn and therefore just Calling is totally fine.

      Best regards.
