      Pre-flop: fine

      Flop: I think I would check/raise there because you don't have the initiative, which is ofcourse dangerous cause you don't wanna give anyone a free turn card here. I assume you were unable to 3bet on the flop cause the MP1 AI wasn't double what you bet & thus counted as a call and not as a raise?
      If I chose to donkbet the flop I would just pot bet thou, make it $0.73, the board is ultra drawy and you've got 2 people behind. I'd try to get the money in there asap if possible.

      Turn: Shove. If you bet here, you're commited on any river anyway so just get it in straight away. If you bet the flop slightly bigger you can easily go all-in on the turn anyway I think.

      Given that you're pretty much all at 100+bb stacks raising it up is fine, helps you get more money in preflop so you can win bigger pots when you hit a set. Of course the fact that you can win the pot right there is a bonus.

      I'd also bet out on that flop, it's not a board a lot of people would c-bet with air anyway and if MP1 has an overpair he won't fold it, so bet/3bet is fine given how drawy the texture is. And as you see you're better off making sure you cover the shorty with your bet.

      Turn is a shove, it's only a slight overbet so don't sweat it, just put your money in there.

      Hope it helps.
