      Personally I like your play. It's not 100% a bluff because the only hands you beat and are not calling are 33, 66 and maybe 77. All his other possible holdings he would fold are not pairs, thus you have the best hand. ATs+ is a good part of his range after turn check so you can bet for value there a lot of times.

      I think 22 is mostly valuable for set mining, but you may call his cbet if he does that often on this flop, but that's about it as you are looking for showdown not big pot here. So I would check bad turn as he will fold here most of his A high, but any other pair beats you even FD with overs has ~44% equity here. On blank river like this you may fold reasonable bet depending how aggro and how capable of betting A high or other bluffs your opp is.

      I think you´re quite a lot even ahead on the river, but sure if you want you can try to bluff him out 33/66/77 and also maybe 8x, 9x
      I think he´d call with better hands
