      You have shown strength all the way to the river, and he should expect you to call his shove.
      Only someone with a very good hand would play this way if you ask me. Hands that beat you: Flush, Straight, Set, KQ.
      Hands that you beat: JQ and Kx, both unlikely since you have a J and a K

      I fold here. Theres a hand like this in the BSS "how to play after flop" section (bronze).

      i call, it looks like a busted draw. flush and set is unlikely (he didnt re-raise pf), a straight is possible but its just a small part of his range.

      Without any reads you should call, since nl 5 players tend to do strange moves.

      Well, i called and he had Q6s (of spades of course).

      Is my flop-bet too small here? I think if i'd replay this hand i'd bet 0.32$ here.

      Q6s... thats his problem, he played it pretty bad on preflop and flop. i'd never fold against an unknown here.

      hi
      i would bet more on the flop too 0.32 or 0.35 is good .
      on the river is hard but as kaitz said nl5 players( and not only are preaty strange ) so call with no history

      I agree with betting more on flop, its too drawy =)

      On the river whenever I call these all-in bets, I lose 80% of the time it seems, just my opinion.
