You should try to post the hand in the Sample Hands BSS - NL5 to NL10 | as of Bronze section.

Preflop make it 0.95 or just 1\$
On the turn you either should have just called or fold. If it's a bluff let him bluff again on the turn. If you think he has an ace just fold.
And as the other players here will tell you - don't post the villain's hand.
Good Luck!

Why are you sitting with \$3.90? What kind of strategy is that?

Either play SSS or play BSS and buy-in to 100BB's and turn on auto rebuy.

With SSS you should have folded after MP3's raise on the flop. You were not committed to the pot.

Regarding MP3 raised being on middle-position the chances of him hitting the Ace were not too bad.

In Short Stack Strategy, you never fold pocket Aces or pocket Kings!

Things changes as stack sizes increase.

yes, but in SSS you leave the table when your stack reaches 25 Big Blinds. If you're playing with more than that, it's not SSS

I play SSS, and I sit until the blinds reach me, I've paid to be in the round and see 9 hands of poker so I am seeing them.

And you can apply the SSS after you double up, in most cases the standard raise once there is an active pot is 2/3 therefore you can play very well. And if you need to go all in, you do so only with the hands that are in the SHC. It's not rocket science.....

...Hero posted BB in this hand, so should not have played it under SSS rules
5-handed is not SSS anyway

preflop raise is too light, checkraise on flop with 2nd pair makes no sense at all

Id say badly played all round
