      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.85 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is UTG1 with Q:spade: , Q:diamond:
      Hero raises to $0.08, 6 folds, SB calls $0.07, BB folds.

      Flop: ($0.18) K:club: , 5:diamond: , 3:heart: (2 players)
      SB bets $0.06, Hero calls $0.06.

      Turn: ($0.30) 5:heart: (2 players)
      SB bets $0.1, Hero calls $0.10.

      River: ($0.50) T:club: (2 players)
      SB bets $0.18, Hero calls $0.18.

      Final Pot: $0.86

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows two-pair, queens and fives (Qs Qd)
      SB shows (Ah 8s)

      Hero wins with two-pair, queens and fives (Qs Qd)

      Preflop: standard
      Flop: given he donks so small 1/3 pot and has AF7 (although small sample), I think I get great odds to call due to the high probability he has no K. Should I have raised? Reason I did not raise was that (i) no draws I need to protect against; and (ii) only Kx would call - better to let him keep bluffing.
      Turn: nothing much changed and small bet size so I call the 2nd barrel.
      River: same again.

      Was this ok against such an opponent and such bet sizes? Also, what would have been the correct play if he had bet each street 2/3 pot?

      Given these odds you could call it down, because he seems like too aggro and he can spazz with worse.
      If he'd bet more more info helps us - how often does he do that, how much does he usually make it and stuff like that, but usually if he'd bet closer to pot I would fold turn, because I think he'd have Kx more often than not.

      Good luck!
