      Preflop: Limping behind here is a significant mistake. ATs is far ahead of a typical MP limping range and you should be raising here not only for value, but also to isolate this fish and play in a headsup pot vs him. Playing in multi-way pots is bad in general.

      Flop: Looks standard to me, you could consider potting Flop with TPTK

      Turn: Not a great card, improves 97/JT/T9/J9. I still think that we can beat many worse hands so a bet is fine but you have to fold vs the raise.

      I'll probably check the River unimproved or I could possibly squeeze in a thin value bet of halfpot or less.

      Nice hand
