      I had no reads on the villain, his 2nd hand at the table. Is this a call on the river, or play it differently entirely?

      $0.05/$0.10 Ante $0.02 No Limit Holdem
      6 Players
      Hand Conversion Powered by weaktight.com

      Stacks:
      UTG ($10)
      UTG+1 ($13.17)
      CO ($26.22)
      BTN ($17.75)
      Hero (SB) ($10.15)
      BB ($22.53)

      Pre-Flop: ($0.27, 6 players) Hero is SB A:club: Q:diamond:
      1 fold, UTG+1 calls $0.10, 2 folds, Hero raises to $0.45, BB calls $0.35, UTG+1 calls $0.35

      Flop: A:spade: A:diamond: 3:heart: ($1.47, 3 players)
      Hero bets $0.92, BB folds, UTG+1 calls $0.92

      Turn: 7:club: ($3.31, 2 players)
      Hero bets $1.65, UTG+1 calls $1.65

      River: K:heart: ($6.61, 2 players)
      Hero bets $3.05, UTG+1 goes all-in $10.13, $4.08 to Hero ($4.08)?

      Hello random3,

      Well, while the guy could easily even limp/call with worse Ax hands there and maybe even ship the river this way then I doubt that I would fold either. :( Most likely I'd still bet a bit bigger on turn and just ship myself the river.

      Best Regards.

      Hi veriz, thank you for comments.

      I agree I should have bet bigger on turn, and make my decision much easier on the river. Got myself into a difficult spot for no good reason.

      As played, do you think river is ok to bet/fold? I decided to fold as I didnt think he would raise worse hands.

      Well, you don't have much to add there and he could easily even have worse Ax hands there. But of course if you doubt that he is overplaying trips like this then folding is just the safest play.
