      I was playing SNGs for a while and just few days ago started learning BSS.
      I'm sure I had to play that hand different, but how should I play it correctly?
      Thanks for answers

      Hand converted with online hand converter:

      Play hand

      Start by playing with a full 100bb stack.

      Make it 4bb preflop, we have a good hand and we want a big pot against bad players at microstakes.

      On the flop we hit TP2K, it stands to be best on such a dryish board until proven otherwise, so bet more like $0.35 to get value worse hands and to protect against the few draws out there.

      As played when BB raises since your bet looks so weak and you don't even have 60bb you can likely either call in position / call down on blanks / fold on flush cards or 3bet and get it in as you did.

      Hope it helps.
