      Preflop is fine.

      On the flop I'd bet $0.6-$0.7. Board is quite drawy and we want to take value from those draws.

      Turn is not the best card but we can bet for value here as well in my opinion so I like your bet.

      As played, I like your river bet here.
      Ax is never folding and I don't really expect to get a third call from Jx here so I'd rather maximize our value and we can even go for something like $4 here.
