To be honest very differently! A 2x open is too small at 2NL I would have gone 2.5x or 3x. The BB is priced in with stuff like T8s to suck out on you. Villain bizarrely min 3bets and then you click it back, you should raise to a decent amount, something like 4x his 3bet e.g. to $0.24. Then he is put to a decision and he either folds out his equity or you build a big pot as the favourite.

Post flop the lead by villain is slightly concerning, I dont mind the raise but why min raise, could make it more like 3x.

The turn shove is optimistic as there are loads of two pair and straight combos available, I'd bet much smaller or even check it back. Then you can easily call any reasonable river bet or value bet again if villain checks. The problem with the shove is he can just call when he has 2 pair plus and fold everything else.

I dont mean to be too critical, but I do think you butchered every street! Of course I may have also got stacked playing it differently if he was sticky preflop.

Thanks for posting, the way this hand was played was bizarre to say the least, min raises and raising from 6cents to 8cents does not accomplish much if anything, the only hands which will call your huge turn shove are hands that beat you, sets, 2pair, and straights.

You can raise a little bit more than 2 BB, for you give excellent odds for the players in the blinds to be calling you. Use a standard raising for all of your hands, and most players elect to go for a 2.5 BB (when they are more loose) and 3 BB (when they are more tight).
Now, the table fold and it comes to the BB which makes a strange low 3-bet. Usually, players go for a 3-bet 2.5 or 3 times the original sizing. In this case, BB/Villain should’ve 3-bet to $ 0,12 and you should’ve do the same!
This villain 3-bet shows us that it is not a old player, otherwise it would’ve been made a larger 3-bet preflop.
And when it comes for you again, you do make a larger “4-bet” going for at least 3 times the raise of your opponent (for this specific scenario)
As long as you are a beginner let’s put more clear so you do not get confused:
1) You raise preflop 3 x (3 blinds)
2) Your opponent 3-bets to 9 x (9 blinds)
3) You 4-bet to 18-20 x (18-20 blinds)
There are many things to say about the postflop action, but the most important thing is: when you go all-in on the turn, there’s a great chance that villain will fold all the losing hands and call only with hands that are beating you.
Keep studying here in the CardsChat forum, there are many free courses and material and never give up, I said that you are a beginner but I consider myself a beginner as well!
Although I play poker for years I don’t think I know enough and I’m always opened for learning.
I use the avatar of a fish because no matter how much I had studied, I consider myself a fish and I will always be a fish.
The best players in the world are humble, they had beat their own selves and play seriously, without emotion and they don’t worry about results or anything else that is not the best move in the table.
Best regards!

Why you are always minraising preflop? Thats the biggest mistake. The 4bet must be bigger on NL2. So minraising gives BB very good pottodds and he can call his complete range.

with AA try to push the pot as much as possible preflop, after his min 3-bet you had to bet about 24 cents so that he no longer has enough pot chances to call with his weak hand, with AA you should already try to get maximum value preflop, since we we will rarely improve post-flop, unlike our opponents
