      U showed alot of weakness on the turn which gives u a difficult decision on river. I would bet/fold the turn, meaning in this case u should see his donk min-bet on the turn as a check and raise it to 5$ or so. If he calls that he won't be inclined to make a move on the river unless he has u beat.

      As played it's hard to say, u could see a bluff from a missed draw, a weaker Tx hand or alot of times u are beat.

      I totally agree, I shouldn't play for pot control that often. It's better to do with TPTK.

      I´d probably raise turn to 6$, since you could be easily ahead and if he calls then you can take free showdown.
