Misclicked and couldn't even finish the tittle.
How much value can I get with TPTK on a dry board MW.

PokerStars No-Limit Hold'em, $0.16 BB (5 handed) - PokerStars Converter Tool from http://www.flopturnriver.com/

MP ($22.95)
Button ($20.87)
SB ($20.64)
BB ($16)
Low Rated (UTG) ($16.72)

Preflop: Low Rated is UTG with A, Q
Low Rated raises to $0.48, MP calls $0.48, Button calls $0.48, SB calls $0.40, 1 fold

Flop: ($2.08) Q, 8, 2 (4 players)
SB bets $0.64, Low Rated calls $0.64, MP calls $0.64, 1 fold

Turn: ($4) 4 (3 players)
SB checks, Low Rated bets $2.10, 1 fold, SB calls $2.10

River: ($8.20) 6 (2 players)
SB checks, Low Rated bets $3.13, SB calls $3.13

Sorry misclicked and couldnt finish the tittle

Villain in SB is marked as a recreational player.

Don't think there is a reason to fold OTF.
OTT he checks and I make a value bet of just over half pot into 2 villains. I think this could maybe have been a little bigger.
OTR he checks and I think that I should be going for a third street of value here, the plan of course is to b/f to a x/r. I dont particularly like my sizing, how big can I reasonably bet here to get max value from weaker hands in his range like like Qx/99-JJ/8x and w/e garbage he may have and decide to call with?

From my fish like calling habits on the river, you should not ask max than tiny bit over half pot. This particular situation having KQ I would call maybe 4.4. He seems determined to call though, donk with calling turn bet, so in this hand he maybe would have called more.

I'd be raising vs the flop donk.

I'd also bet bigger OTT and OTR. Think we've missed a bit of value here.

Raising flop is an option, but since we can get up to 3 streets from a queen anyway and the board isn't all thta wet we can also call and keep stuff like 8x, midpairs and gutters in that will probably fold to a raise.

Turn and river I'd bet a little bigger as I feel like we should now focus on getting max value from worse queens after SB checks. In my experience I don't see SB folding a queen even if we bet 1/2 to 2/3 pot here.
