      Known players:

      0.02/0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (5 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant.Base 0.98 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is SB with A:club: , Q:diamond:
      2 folds, BU raises to $0.15, Hero calls $0.13, BB folds.

      Flop: ($0.35) Q:spade: , 6:heart: , 5:spade: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU bets $0.3, Hero calls $0.30.

      Turn: ($0.95) K:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU bets $0.7, Hero calls $0.70.

      River: ($2.35) 4:spade: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU raises $3.85 (All-In), Hero folds, BU gets uncalled bet back (All-In).

      Final Pot: $2.35

      Flop: Should I raise? I was unsure whether it would isolate me vs better hands. There are quite a few draws that may call a raise, and maybe worse Qx would call?

      Turn: Not the nicest card, but its not that likely that villain has a K imo.

      River: Now was really unsure of his hand. I probably would fold even to a 2/3 - pot sized bet I think. Cant see him value betting any thing that I would beat for 3 streets.

      My logic and play ok, or anything I should do different?

      Hello Jeffers16,

      Nah, I wouldn't really raise the flop, as you said yourself already that we may easily isolate ourselves against better hands and we don't even know the opponent. And as played seems to be somewhat fine, we can't really beat much anyways on river as he shoves.

      When I would face somewhat passive player then I might even fold it right on turn.

      Best regards.
