      Do you think there was an option to make a raise pre flop and take a stab at the dead money, or is A 10 too wide.

      Anyway as played perhaps check/fold because a few draws got there and I probably should have slowed down, Im not too sure about the river bet my thinking at the time was nobody would limp with a strong Ace so I had there kicker covered, then maybe they had 7-x , 3-x or a small pocket pair

      Any help towards this situation would be great cheers.

      I would recommend raising preflop maybe 8-9BB. If re-raised I am folding here (monster possible and we are OOP).

      As played:

      Donking is viable option. With AT we are not happy stack off here and folding to raise here.

      I like donking here again, but little smaller - 2/3 POT. To see where we are, folding to raise.

      What do you expect that you can beat on this board after 2 calls. Str8 (2 and 6) and flush completed. We have only TP medium kicker. I am check folding here.

      Hand plays easier heads-up because you only have to fold out 1 opponent most of the time but also your equity is higher because you dominate A9-A2, JT,QT,KT etc.

      As played I would vBet Flop & Turn by default. River is for me a check/evaluate but as you see this board is getting quite ugly, I dont see worser hands vBet the river so you can either check/fold or make some kind of blockbet for Thiin value
