      Ya your ace is probably not good on turn so you're only calling for straight and that is not enough imo because it would be highly obvious if it hit and you have no implied. On flop I call too because he's giving you such nice odds. On turn i then fold.
      Unlucky river for you if it didn't complete straight also, but I would have felt behind already because he might have hit 2 pair on turn as well.

      looks fine, except no need to raise on the river.

      edit: i missed that he made a straight. so of course raise river is fine

      Raise river is fine, no way he ever has a flush here.

      Against a weak midstack I would shove the turn here. You now have TP GK, OESD, and if you call here you are all in on any river card, because he has nothing left behind, just $5, so he can't really fold now either.

      And given that he has tried to take the initiative with his weak flop donk, he won't fold any hand he is betting I would think.

      Consider his stack size, I´d just shove on the turn, he would call wityh worse hands.
