First as been said you should raise here preflop. Sure you have a small pocket pair but, no one else has raised at this point. Raise, and if nothing else narrow the field. Doing this accomplishes a couple of things. First in narrows down the hands other people can have. (Yes even at the micro stakes.) 2nd, instead of playing 3-5 people post flop you will be either heads up or against 3 in most cases. This helps you a lot. If you miss your 6, since your raised you have now aquired bluff outs. Say someone calls your raise with a higher pocket pair 8-8 for instance the flop comes AK2. You bet he is going to fold 99% of the time and you picked up some free money. If you flop your set on an A high board you can assume they have an Ace anything and probably stack them off. Now if you just limp you can be up against anything no flop is safe period. At least raising you have a better idea where you are after the flop.
2nd why make a min raise here when you flopped the 2nd best hand. Yes this has been a big point from people but it's a great point. Raise here on such a draw heavy board. Make people pay improper odds to chase there straights and flushes. If you do this over the long run you will make money. There is no iffs ands or buts. If you do it, over the long run, you will make money period. It's the beauty of math in poker.
You have to get more aggressive with good hands to be successful, I'm not saying go manic mode, but, when you flop big hands you have to bet and make other people make mistakes. Yes they will time to time get lucky and win hands. However, in the long run this will make a +EV player.
I find very little wrong with your turn play. The re raise is to large for you to call with no reads or history with the villains. However, you should have never been in that position to start with.
Moral of the post.
Make +EV plays at all times and you will in the long run make a profit. Sure hand for hand you might get unlucky, that isn't the way to look at it. You have to look at it as, I made him make mistakes he got lucky I played the hand better than my opponent. If I do this same thing 100 times. I'm going to make money.
