      Not quite sure why you're min3betting preflop, that the pretty much the only action i wouldn't take. I don't mind folding nor 3betting to a normal amount if you have a good reason to do so, calling as a default is fine provided you can let go of a single pair postflop to continued aggression.

      Flop is fine tho i might bet a little less like $0.5. On the turn either make a normal bet/fold or check it back, if you make a small bet you might induce some weird bluffs against an unknown on a board where you're not too sure about your hand, so if you induce a turn raise, call it and then he shoves the river, where does that leave you? Is he or is he not bluffing because you asked for it? It's perfectly possible he has the nuts. River is fine.

      Hope it helps.
