      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.60 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is BB with 2:diamond: , Q:diamond:
      7 folds, SB calls $0.05, Hero checks.

      Flop: ($0.20) 8:spade: , 4:heart: , Q:club: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.10, SB calls $0.10.

      Turn: ($0.40) Q:spade: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.30, SB calls $0.30.

      River: ($1.00) J:spade: (2 players)
      SB bets $1.00, Hero raises to $1.30 (All-In), SB calls $0.30.

      Final Pot: $3.60

      The SB limped and I have TP no kicker. SB appears to be a calling station, is a 1/2 potsize bet on the flop ok?

      Preflop: With a First-in Completer SB I Would Reraise 4BB with any Ax,Kx,Qx,PP, Suited Connectors & Broadway Onegappers

      As your play concerns:

      Flop: Bet potsized since its a very small pot. Doesnt make sense to minbet.
      Turn: Now you've got trips and since the pot is still small and you think he is a calling station. Bet potsized. It gives you more value ;)

      River: Easy shove, you shouldnt be afraid of backdoorflush.

      you really dont have to raise preflop, a check is perfectly ok.
      bet more on the flop, minbets just suck :P if he sees it as weakness and bluffraises you you have to fold. if he just calls you also lose value because he would have also called a bigger bet
      turn is ok
      river is good
