Results follow:

SB shows a pair of aces(Ad Kd).
Hero shows three of a kind, fives(5h 5c).

Hero wins with three of a kind, fives(5h 5c).

How can I extract the most value of a flopped set? I think I made a mistake in min raising on the flop, but I was scared villain might fold.

Should I have raised more on the turn so that I would have a pot sized bet left on the river?

On the river, even with most draws completing (flush, straight --> didn't really put any 2 in his PF range tho) I think his checking on the river after betting both flop and turn looked really weak, therefore I decided to shove it, hoping for a call from an ace.

I'd make it \$0.3 on the flop. SB is isolating CO OOP preflop and cbetting against two on that board. Even if you raise to \$0.2 his not going to call with a wider range.

I'd rase a little more on the turn so I have a potsize bet on the river.
