Tought Spots - 2 NL

Hey guys! WhiskeyJack here, looking for some help. I am a somewhat bad player, but i've had some experience. I have played(and won) some live tournaments, but still struggle at 2 NL. Now, on to the hand.

    Poker Stars, $0.01/$0.02 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players
    Poker Tools Powered By Holdem Manager - The Ultimate Poker Software Suite. View Hand #37851467

    SB: $1.48 (74 bb)
    BB: $2 (100 bb)
    UTG: $2.42 (121 bb) * Villian Plays 28/24/6 *
    MP: $2.12 (106 bb)
    Hero (CO): $4.61 (230.5 bb)
    BTN: $2.05 (102.5 bb)

    Preflop: Hero is CO with T A
    UTG raises to $0.06, MP folds, Hero raises to $0.16, 2 folds, BB calls $0.14, UTG calls $0.10

    Why 3Bet here? I've seen the villian call wide Pre-Flop with hands like 78s and other suited connectors. Also, i wanted to know where i was at and also had position.

    Flop: ($0.49) 6 A 5 (3 players)
    BB checks, UTG checks, Hero bets $0.20, BB folds, UTG calls $0.20

    Standart C-Bet here, i think. Checked to me, Villian has capped his range(He should 4Bet JJ+ & AK, possibly AQs)

    Turn: ($0.89) 2 (2 players)
    UTG checks, Hero checks

    Probably shouldn't have checked here, i put him on some nut flush draws or weaker Ace.

    River: ($0.89) Q (2 players)
    UTG bets $0.75, Hero calls $0.75

    Here is where i am perplexed. I felt he would check-raise with AQ since my image has been pretty aggro and i checked the turn. I knew he didn't have AK, KK, AA, or QQ since he would 4 bet those. So at this point, i felt i should've called because all the obvious draws missed. To be honest - i never expected what happened next.

    Thanks in advance for the help guys, it's greatly appreciated

    Fold this preflop. If you want to 3b, use bigger size, so that AJo doesn't call.

    Also, in live tournaments there are pretty much the worst players you can find anywhere. 2nl is tougher.

    I don’t mind the 3 bet as long as you know it’s in your 3B bluff range since if you get 4 bet you’re folding. The 3 bet should be a bit larger say 0.24-.28 to isolate the weak player you describe. If that happens and he calls you’re pretty much screwed on this runout regardless (unless you can find a hero fold)

    Fold preflop here. As played, Fold river. If he raises from mp or lp, and has high fold to 3bet, you can 3bet (more), with AT, expecting a fold preflop.
