i think a weak lead out bet on the flop would have been the right thing to do. maybe earn a few more cents and definately appear weaker if u check/call the turn.

2.50(before rake) in a .01/.02 game. 25 times the big blind and your all in. I'd call that a nice pot. Remember, the opponents cards are the big key in what you can get out of a pot. if they had pure junk, they'd have all folded when u raised .04 on the pockets.

Given the flop and turn play, I like the river 3-bet shove a lot. At $2NL pretty much anything villain is raising with on the river he's calling a shove with, unless he's running a silly bluff in which case you will get no more money out of him whatever you do.

That said, you should start building the pot on the flop. Slowplay at these levels is incredibly overrated. Firstly, you need to bet to protect your hand against the possible fluh/straight draws, and secondly, it's $2NL and most people will happily call you with any piece of the board.

You could have popped it up a bit more preflop, 4-5BB, but the 3bb raise isn't terrible.
