      Villain is a very passive player: 37/1, 0.1 AF over 40 hands.
      Is that played correctly?

      Hand converted with online hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (7 handed)

      Known players:
      MP1 (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is MP1 with K, A.
      UTG2 calls $0.10, Hero raises to $0.40, 5 folds, UTG2 calls $0.30.

      Flop: ($0.9) T, 6, A (2 players)
      UTG2 checks, Hero bets $0.60, UTG2 calls $0.60.

      Turn: ($2.1) 4 (2 players)
      UTG2 checks, Hero bets $1.50, UTG2 calls $1.50.

      River: ($5.1) 7 (2 players)
      UTG2 bets $4.31, Hero calls $4.31.

      Final Pot: $13.72.

      Results follow:

      Hero shows a pair of aces(Kh Ah).
      UTG2 shows two pairs, aces and sevens(As 7s).

      UTG2 wins with two pairs, aces and sevens(As 7s).

      I often find myself overplaying TPTK and it's something I'm working on intensely, because I feel I'm losing a lot of money in these spots. Is that a spot I could've gotten away from?

      Hello inlovewithamsterdam,

      The problem with river is that we don't beat any hand there. Even a GS got there, as well a lot sets/2pairs are possible. And he wont anyways donk like this with just Ax or whatsoever hands, even not bluffs after our line on flop & turn. Therefore standard spot to fold the river.

      Best regards.
