      Hello Chippie82,

      Preflop: I'd raise it bigger here ~$0,14 for 2 limpers and being OOP.
      Flop: Wouldn't make it pot, $0,14 should be enough.
      Turn: Likely just Bet for protection here and as well for free showdown.
      River: As you went for passive line on turn then Check/Calling should be fine, he could easily even bluff here for bet with weaker pairs.

      How can i improve my play, thanks in advance!

      For first thing and most likely the fastest way to improve your play is to post more hands. :)

      Best regards.
