      I intend to raise more on the flop against donk bets because this players are usually bad and will pay you more than they should.

      I would bet 1/2 pot on the turn to try to take it here but more often with intention of giving yourself a free showdown.

      I think folding on the river is correct play here.

      Hello uni1102,

      Flop: I would likely raise it bigger here, ~$0.24 or something similar.

      As played
      Turn: Checking behind is totally fine since the Ace could be also a scare card for him, for example he has Tx or something similar hand, he could easily fold it but of course betting into fishy opponent ain't wrong either.
      River: Folding is likely better, small bet on flop could easily indicate to a draw or something similar and maybe he even hit on turn which he tried to Check/Raise and now on river he is trying to get maximum value with pot size bet. Nice fold!

      Best regards.
