Final Pot: \$1.85.
Results follow:

UTG2 shows a pair of aces(A 9).
Hero shows two pairs, aces and tens(T A).

Hero wins with two pairs, aces and tens(T A).

I presume a standard cbet by him on the flop, turn I just called taken in possibility he might have JJ here and I couldnt stand a reraise but I expected him to try and barrel me out so I might get more if he bets again on river

My river call ok or should have raised for value?

Thanks

Hi,

I would just fold preflop. UTG2 is in early position and presumably has a strong range. He also makes a relatively big raise preflop (4x) so our AT is not in good shape.

As played, I think you played postflop correct. There is not enough value in raising the river, he can easily have AJ/KQ/JJ/AA/TT.
