      Preflop, i had raised to 0.15$ or 0.2$
      Flop Here you must protect your hand against some possible flush draws or straight draws, cause the board is wet. So here you should bet pot. ($0.4)
      Turn Here your opponent unlikely beats you, cause only AK and 89, gutshot draws, hit. So bet pot (0.8$) than just call his raises.
      RiverNow you beat all draws that hit, you should bet for value around 2/3 pot (2.2$) if he raises you, you can shove, he has maybe a Q, or a draw that hitted.

      Please don't post the results. (even not hidden... :) )

      Preflop: I prefer raising it up when I'm playing a PP even if it's a small pp.

      Flop: Donking (betting into the preflop aggersor) this flop to build the pot and protect your hand is fine. Bet more ~ 0.3 as your small bet gives good odds for a draw to call.

      Turn: bet/shove this turn, the board is wet, you can't give your opponent anther card.

      River: As played value bet the river. I'll shove it. He is likely to pay us off with a queen or a straight.
