      Is this pointless play against unknown and how my though process looks?

      PokerStars - $0.05 NL - Holdem - 9 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      MP+1: $2.30
      CO: $9.97
      BTN: $2.13
      Hero (SB): $5.02
      BB: $4.95
      UTG: $5.75
      UTG+1: $4.93
      UTG+2: $4.68
      MP: $1.93

      Hero posts SB $0.02, BB posts BB $0.05

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.07) Hero has Q:heart: A:diamond:

      fold, fold, fold, fold, fold, CO raises to $0.17, fold, Hero calls $0.15, fold
      I think calling is ok here.
      Flop: ($0.39, 2 players) J:heart: 9:club: 4:heart:
      Hero checks, CO checks
      For me standard check/fold, opponent checks back and i assume he has overcards or small pocket pair.
      Turn: ($0.39, 2 players) 6:spade:
      Hero bets $0.20, CO calls $0.20
      Since flop hits my calling range quite well i think he folds lots of his range that i gave to him and if he calls then on blank river i can barrel that should do the work. But i think my bet here was too small maybe 30c or so is better.
      River: ($0.79, 2 players) 6:heart:
      Hero bets $0.60
      I thought that river can be count as blank and i barreled. I think 3/4 pot size bet should be okay here. So if i had bet 30c on turn the river bet would be around 75-80c.

      Preflop I think we can 3bet for value here.

      Checking the flop with the intention to check/fold is fine.

      As played, I prefer checking the turn as well. Quite a lot of draws out there and I doubt that a better hand would fold to one bet at all and we have SD value with A high.

      I think once he calls us here it's better to check the river and fold to a bet.

      Overall I would just refrain from bluffing people on these limits.
