      Preflop.
      Checked to see a free one

      Flop.
      OK, so I hit a 4 on the flop and bet out to see where I am, UTG1 call's so I put him on 8 more than an Ace

      Turn.
      Bingo I hit two pair, I bet the pot because of the flush draw and also if he/she is slow playing an Ace they may pay it

      River.
      They called, a card I didn't want to see, but I bet again thinking they must had an Ace

      Anything I should of done diff?

      Hi, You have posted in the SSS forum with a 125 stack. :D

      on the flop it is check/fold with bottom pair. Betting to see where you are at OOP is very often a wrong reason to bet. If you get called or raised do you know any more where you are at? it could be a bluff or a slow play, so avoid.

      Hello ukwagon,

      Flop: There is no point to bet it here, just Check/Fold with your bottom pair.
      Turn: Betting pot could be reasonable here since you have pretty strong 2pairs but I wouldn't get fancy with them, might even find a fold if we get raised. Since he would often pick such a line with better 2 pairs.
      River: Bet/Fold would be often my line, even if we getting that good odds, I don't see myself being ahead of his range that often to make the Call profitable.

      Best regards.
