      Blinds: $0.25/$0.50
      5 players

      Stack sizes:
      UTG: $92.40
      CO: $40.35
      Button: $79.56
      SB: $82.27
      Hero: $73.55

      Pre-flop: (5 players) Hero is BB with A:heart: Q:heart:
      [color:#cc0000]UTG raises to $1.5[/color], 3 folds, Hero calls.

      Flop: A:club: 4:diamond: Q:spade: ($3.25, 2 players)
      Hero checks, [color:#cc0000]UTG bets $1.75[/color], [color:#cc0000]Hero raises to $5.5[/color], UTG calls.

      decided to check raise because I thought if he bet he probably has strong ace (AK/AJ) that he'd be willing to call down with

      Turn: 3:spade: ($14.25, 2 players)
      [color:#cc0000]Hero bets $9[/color], UTG calls.

      River: 2:club: ($32.25, 2 players)
      [color:#cc0000]Hero bets $20[/color], [color:#cc0000]UTG raises all-in $76.4[/color] Hero??

      When he pushed the river I was really unsure, but felt that basically the only hand he could have would be QQ/AA and ended up folding. Anything I could have done here?

      Really though bet/fold with top two pair
      Btw you can also beat the bluff :)
      It is like folding bottom set (ofcourse he could probably also have here 44, since flop is so dry and you´re representing 44 or maybe AQ).
      So against unknown I won´t fold. He could go crazy and push AK for value or KJ.
