      BB: $2.42 (48.4 bb)
      UTG: $0.83 (16.6 bb)
      Hero (MP): $5.66 (113.2 bb)
      CO: $4.50 (90 bb)
      BTN: $4.01 (80.2 bb)
      SB: $1.90 (38 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP with A K
      UTG folds, Hero raises to $0.17, CO folds, BTN calls $0.17, 2 folds

      Flop: ($0.41) Q A J (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.30, BTN calls $0.30

      Turn: ($1.01) T (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.75, BTN calls $0.75

      River: ($2.51) 3 (2 players)
      Hero bets $1, BTN calls $1

      How is my line here?

      Villain, seemed rather passive.

      A rather drawy board, I assume villain would call with many broadways, but I can easily be ahead, and I can improve as well, bet for value and protection.

      Completes my straight, but also completes a flush, villain is still passive, but I assume he would bet into me when he has a hand here?

      Can I go for more value here, or is it to big already, most hand that calls either beats me or split.
      However villain does seem weak, and I would fold to a raise here.
      I assume he would call with most Ax hands but not sure if he would do a river call.

      Do I still get value from 2pair combos, or would they fold on river?

      Preflop is fine of course.

      I think your bet on the flop is good.

      Turn brings us a straight and I think betting is fine.
      I wouldn't be afraid of a flush too much here since he can't have A/Q/J/T of spades so he's left with very little combos of flushes plus we have the As.

      I think the river is still a bet here.
      He might call us down with two pair and I like your sizing here.
