      I figured this was a good place to attempt a steal. Villain's stats were VPIP 37%, PR 20%, AF 3.

      $0.02/$0.05 No Limit Holdem
      8 players
      Converted at weaktight.com

      UTG ($10.97)
      UTG 1 ($1.51)
      MP1 ($5.44)
      MP2 ($1.90)
      CO ($5.88)
      BTN ($9.68)
      Hero ($3.18)
      BB ($6.19)

      Pre-flop: ($0.07, 8 players) Hero is SB K:club: Q:spade:
      6 folds, Hero raises to $0.15, BB calls $0.10

      Flop: J:club: A:heart: Q:heart: ($0.30, 2 players)
      Hero bets $0.15, BB calls $0.15

      Turn: T:club: ($0.60, 2 players)
      Hero bets $0.30, BB calls $0.30

      River: 3:heart: ($1.20, 2 players)
      Hero ($2.58)?

      In hindsight I think the turn bet should have been bigger.

      As played, what should I do here?

      I think you missunderstood when to steal. You should steal more against tight players and less against loose players.

      I would bet more on flop and on the turn. River is kind of ugly so might c/c depending on his river betsize if he bets...

      reload preflop to full stack
      raise to 4 bb preflop when you are sb against bb situation .
      bet something like 0.2 on the flop and bet close tu pot on the turn
      as played i would bet something like 0.85 and probably fold to a shove because i dont think he is able to turn an ace or two pair into a bluff and shove river and he would probably raise turn with a straight .
      So just a flush will raise a river bet most of the times .
