      Raise it bigger on flop, you could make it even 80-90c. There's that FD and all sets are improving when the board pairs up.

      As played, bet turn a bit bigger and fold to any resistance on further streets.

      make it bigger preflop (25 cents for 4bb+1 limper) and raise bigger on the flop as mentioned by the previous poster.

      on the turn... that is actually the absolute worst card on the deck.
      so you might even want to just check/fold turn and river. he should not be betting with AQ/KQ and most likely won't be bluffing either.
      however if you want to bet i think that turn sizing is fine, to get value from AQ/KQ exactly. other random worse hands are most likely just giving up.

      of course there is nothing else to be done on that river, he has the Qx. :f_biggrin:

      c/f turn, that is the worst card in the deck, nothing you beat calls you on that turn
