      Is it ok to bet turn and river since he only checked those streets ? The flop was really ugly

      Flop: Obviously must raise here since often you're ahead here though opponent probably leads with a draw - wants to take the pot right here or improve later.
      Turn: Would bet more, at least 0.15$. If he draws he will still call.
      River: Everything's fine here.

      Howdy,

      You can raise preflop, at least I'd suggest to to that.

      Raise flop a lot more at least 0.20$ and bet more on turn, close to pot as we're planning on getting as much of his stack as possible, so only way to do that is raise and bet big - he can still call with draws so charge `em until you can.

      Good luck!

      Hello acceleration123,

      I'd like to mention out that limping on those limit those kind of PPs ain't wrong just for the reason that they don't adjust to your limps anyways.

      Best regards.

      No doubt it's not wrong to limp, but, for example, in this case we limped, everyone folded and BB got freeplay. Other scenario may be - we raise and we take down the pot. Which case is better? Of course it purely depends on table you're playing on as with a lot of loose/passive players limping is fine as even if you raise and cbet they won't fold anyway.
      And another thing with limping is that even tho at NL2 isoraising is not the issue normally, it's still sucks to get raised and be without initiative OOP, right? :)
