      Raise preflop to 4xBB. On the flop you have top pair, weak kicker and a gutshot, so standard continuation bet of 2/3 pot and then keep betting every street. I think your main mistake here was not raising preflop so BB gets a free play. It is better to make 1xBB than lose much more, right ?:)

      Raise preflop. Notmal, 4+1bb raise or even 4.5+1 since you've already posted .5bb. That way you can easily bet flop and shove turn. This is quite easy, isn't it? basic sss.

      Apart from preflop play you did well, there's no other way to handle the situation.
