      Hello crodady,

      Preflop: Raise is too small, I'd make it ~$0.50, since so many limpers and being OOP.

      As played
      Flop: As long they could easily just min-raise here with only Qx type of hands and what I have seen often I'd also Call, not in many ranges is 3x type of hand.
      Turn: Going for pot control is a good idea, since we don't want to face Check/Raise and there is not much to protect from.
      River: Bet for value, he will often have a bluff here or just a weaker Qx or PP type of hand.

      Best regards.
