      Pre-flop: re-raise... just 4bet. If you flat call the BB's min-3bet your gonna go to a 5way flop and you'll be in a whole lot of trouble. So just make it $0.40 after the BB 3bets & flush all those callers out and take the flop heads up. If the BB goes all-in just call... on NL2 it's no problem to go broke with AK pre-flop since you'll see people shoving with worse to.

      Flop: You're 5 handed, you've got nothing... and the board is just really bad to c-bet. So just check, you don't have initiative anyway.

      Turn: Bet... as in actually bet. You're putting $0.08 in a $1.19 pot, I hope you were being funny or something... If any of the other players in the hand is folding 2 he is getting sick odds to call.
      So if you decide to bet here, which you should, then just $0.8 or even $0.9.

      River: Just get your money in, or whatever is left of it. But if you played the hand like described above you are all-in by the time you reach the river.

      Try and post the stack sizes of your opponents, it's important.

      As for the actual play i agree with Mstlc's post, tho i don't think calling preflop is that horrible since you'll often end up in a 5-way pot with a hand that can flop huge, it's probably best to just get it in preflop at nl2. Also, stop playing limit holdem and make real bets ;)

      Hope it helps.
