      0.05/0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.67 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is with T:heart: , T:club: . Hero posts a blind of $0.10.
      A folds, Villain raises to $0.40, 3 folds, Hero calls $0.30.

      Flop: ($0.85) 2:spade: , 5:diamond: , 7:spade: (2 players)
      Villain bets $0.42, Hero raises to $1.20, Villain raises to $7.50 (All-In), Hero calls $6.30.

      Turn: ($15.85) A:spade:
      River: ($15.85) A:heart: (2 players)


      Final Pot: $15.85

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows two pairs, aces and tens (Th Tc)
      Villain shows two pairs, aces and deuces (2h 4h)

      Hero wins with two pairs, aces and tens (Th Tc)

      Villain line makes no sense should he have set or overpair. He bets half pot indicating he wants to draw and pushes to my raise. A hand which would have me beat would bet higher for protection, hence villain must be on a draw or is bluffing with his all-in.

      Without stats I totally fold to the shove on the flop I think. Stats change things so much.. ^^

      Never have stats because cake doesn't allow.

      Anyways yeah this is exactly the point, he wants you to fold. Someone having you beat would not want you to fold. He would just call my raise and bet into me again on the turn.

      JJ+ seems unlikely.
      set is unlikely.
      Just looks like a pair or so.

      I do not like to call such overbets. He could easily have better pair here or even a set what he wants to protect from flush.

      Once you raise you should call shove (especially at middlestack), sine he could shove with any draw.
      I think you played it fine.

      Look closely again at how he bets:

      He is betting half pot first. This is giving me the odds to draw. Now if he wants to protect, this is really out of line.

      Now I raise, he must know I am not on a draw at this point and want to protect. Pushing now will only get me to fold normally. It is the wrong move if he wants to extract money from me.

      Hence he cannot have me beat.
