      Just make a man-size 3-bet preflop with your aces, $0.30 looks fine.

      As played on the flop same thing, you don't win at poker by betting small with your good hands. On that board there are plenty of worse hands for people to call you with so just pot it until you're all-in.

      As played on the river it's a nut-low card for you JT/flushdraws got there and a guy that just called your small bets for 2 streets before isn't going to suddenly wake up and make a big valuebet with worse than AA too often, I wouldn't mind check/folding that particular river depending on how villain plays.

      Hope it helps.
