      first of all: rebuy to 100BB=20$

      Preflop: ok, given your odds
      Flop: either just call or raise to 3.75-4.25$ to generate fold equity and to see where you stand.
      Turn: check behind if your flopraise got called
      River: fold if villain donks otherwise bet 2/3 pot

      As played: What do you want to achieve by your mini-flopraise and with your weak turn bet?

      Best regards,

      Dunno really, thought I was betting for value lol. As remember, I then was "look, I have AQs, this is a lot so surrender!" Pretty stupid and fishy actually.

      I'm worried a bit about posting such hands so people will start chasing me in poker rooms trying to get my m00niez lol

      you can play for stacks for 50bb, so 4-bet to 4$ and call shove
      once he calls on the flop I´d give up, he won´t fold to you, since your stack size is too small
      check back river, he´d call you down most of the times, since you don´t have enough money left to bluff him out
