      I suggest you play "by the book" in the micro-stakes.
      There is no need to slow play in NL2. You are likely to stack off almost any PP and Kx so bet bet bet to get maximum value.

      I would actually say don't slow-play aces at any limit.

      Too much potential for your opponent to catch a lucky flop.

      Make your bet sizes consistent, i.e. 2/3 of the pot so it's hard for your opponent to read you.
