      AKo is one of my worst hands in terms of net loss. So I will try to post as many of them as possible. Trying to reform my poker this month... :)

      Button ($11.96)
      Hero ($5.07)
      BB ($7.97)

      Raise to 0.30-0.35 because of 2 limpers and perhaps an additional bb because of your position. And on the flop, say that you raised to 0.35 and one person called, that would make the pot 0.80, cbet something like 0.60. I don't think the T:diamond: is the best of cards to make a 2nd barrel at either, and besides, it's way too small as well, it should've been something like 0.70-1 imo.

      Raise more preflop.

      If you want to second barrel, which is ok, then bet a little more on the turn.
