      I guess I would bet on the flop - it's unlikely they hit anything, but you may get a call from weaker aces or draws.
      On the turn you have to raise bigger! The pot is 1.65$ and you raise to 0.45$ that's like 1/4 pot bet - every draw gets good odds to call and even two overcards still are correct to call here, you don't want that.

      I guess it's a thing that many people here don't understand - postflop you don't make raises in relation to other people bets, but in relation to the size of the pot. Preflop you raise three times the initial raise, it's ok cause there's no more money in the pot. Here, however, the pot is already 1.45$ when the turn comes - you should bet around 2/3 of the pot here which equals around 1.1$-1.2$ including the bets already made by your opponents. I recommend you reading the article titled "Calculating the potsize - raise" or sth like that.

      On the river it's a fold for me against that player.

      pf: make it 0.5$

      Flop: c-bet this flop as the pfa, it's unlikely either one of them hit on a paired board.

      As played:

      Turn: Raise it to to around 1.2$ to protect you hand. By raising so small you are giving them good odds to call with a drawing hand.

      River: Not many hands to get value from (33,44,9x) I'm checking behind on this board.
      As played: min C/R on this dry board from this guy is very often a hand that you don't beat.
