      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)

      Known players:
      SB:
      $4.98
      BB (Hero):
      $2.00
      UTG2:
      $2.20
      MP1:
      $0.92
      MP2:
      $2.00
      MP3:
      $0.89
      CO:
      $4.79
      BU:
      $1.93


      Preflop: Hero is BB with A, Q.
      UTG2 calls $0.02, 6 folds, Hero raises to $0.10, UTG2 calls $0.08.

      Flop: ($0.21) Q, 8, 5 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.16, UTG2 calls $0.16.

      Turn: ($0.53) 7 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.36, UTG2 calls $0.36.
      A lots of draws complete. Should I still bet? I don't want UTG2 to sense any weakness and "bet me out" with a botched AK.

      River: ($1.25) T (2 players)
      Hero checks, UTG2 checks.
      I didn't "dare to" bet, for UTG2 might be slowrolling me. What if UTG2 bets?

      Final Pot: $1.25.

      Hi,

      I think b/f turn would be better option than c/f. You can consider going to pot control and c/c or if he checks back then bet on blank river, but betting is usually better, since you´re getting value from worse hands and also protecting your hand against draws. I would b/f river 0.6$. He would call you down with any Qx hand and your hand is relatively strong consider he limp/called pf. If you check then I would call to 0.5$ bet. There is always chance he would valuebet worse hands or bluff some strange hand

      best regards,
