What would you do? #28

This is not so much of a what would you do, but an education lesson. I *RARELY* call down Ace high, but I felt this was a situation that warranted it.

Villain is a 12/10/6.4 / 70% cbet / 28% attempt to steal @ 773 hands.

Full Tilt Poker $0.25/$0.50 No Limit Hold'em - 9 players - http://www.thehandconverter.com/hands/374549

UTG: $51.95

MP2: $63.35
CO: $54.70
BTN: $40.00
SB: $59.70

Pre Flop: ($0.75) Hero is UTG+1 with Ah 9h
1 fold, Hero calls $0.50, 6 folds, BB checks

Flop: ($1.25) Qs Js Kh (2 players)
BB checks, Hero bets $1, BB calls $1
A BB limped pot with a gut shot and backdoor flush draw. I figure to take down this checked pot. BB opts to smooth.

Turn: ($3.25) 6c (2 players)
BB checks, Hero checks
Check through; not sure where I am in the hand. I'm happy to go to showdown here, because I think I have showdown value.

River: ($3.25) 5c (2 players)
BB bets $2, Hero ???

Hero calls $2 -His lack of interest / check on the turn says that he's on a draw... to the ten. The only question is whether the 5 or 6 connected with him. I snap call immediately and find that I read the situation exactly correct.

Final Pot: $7.25
Hero shows Ah 9h (Ace King high)
BB shows Th 8h (King Queen high)
Hero wins $6.90
(Rake: $0.35)
