      Flop: I actually like this play a lot on this super coordinated board with a medium strength hand like AQ. But I don't think it's the best play at NL2. People just play so passively and call way too much and hardly bluff raise. You should just bet with the intention of folding to a raise and bet all blank turns and maybe c/c blank rivers.

      A c/c makes more sense at the more aggressive games at higher limits (NL100+)

      River: again you are playing this very weakly. I don't think you are beat all that much. He did not bet the Flop so he probably doesn't have a straight or set or two pair. Only thing that beats you here IMO is A9 or A6/66 and you beat everything else. I'm sure he's capable of showing up with some bluffs (busted draws) as well as worse made hands like AT when you played your hand so passively
