      MP3 is passive fish, you can expoid his high vpip by raising pf and taking pot down a lot postflop.
      Flop: Raising is fine, since he only min-bet. You could consider also raising to 1$ and taking free card if don´t improve
      Turn: You have good equity against one pair or drawing hand, so raising is fine, but also calling and seeing river card.
      River: As played, nice raise.
