      bet on flop is ok,but on turn, you shouldn't bet again cause all better hands will call, and all others will fold. If he bets on turn, you can fold cause he's likely ahead.

      Don't overbet the pot... it's so useless. I'd play this slightly more passive and even if you want to bet on the flop, make it a normal bet or at least MAX pot. Don't overbet. Also... top pair on an 5 high flop isn't absolutly brilliant. Every single pocket pair has you beat on the flop.

      There's a saying: "Don't go broke in a limped pot". Playing limped pots like this sure as hell isn't a good way to achieve that.

      That doesn't count as overbetting in my book, it's just a potsized bet on most poker sites.

      Your line is fine, your made hand + weak draw is strong enough to warrant a check/call in that spot too, so betting yourself to keep the initiative is also good.

      On the river you can't be too concerned about the backdoor flush but he might have a 6, if you get raised you would be calling at best for a split, so you should fold.

      Hope it helps.
