Personally i don't like tiny pairs eg. 22,33,44 when EP. These pairs, no matter what, are consistent Losers (highlight) no matter how good you play them from EP. I've read and checked database results (not mine) and they explained it's just bad to play them on EP. Regardless this, your call is good for set mining since your stack is > 40 BB (my fav ...

With the Villain playing fairly tight and limping frequently, I would suspect that he has been looking to set mine. He might be willing to call 5BB with any pocket pair (and a few other hands) since he's on the button, but from your description of his play I would say he most likely has a medium to high pocket pair 77+.

With that many players in the pot you should have raised rather than slow play. A raise of half to 3/4 the pot makes it mathematically a bad decision for anyone on a draw to call. But you could get a call from someone who hit the flop with less than a set. If someone on a draw makes the bad decision and calls, it makes no difference if you win or lose that ...

I agree with Paulpro, the only thing I'll add is that I think he could also have AQ until the river shove. From the description, he may try to get value on 2 streets, but it is rare to have a 1/2 player shove with just TPTK on the river. He has a minimum of 2 pair. QT is a definite possibility here, too as I think he would be more likely to wait until the ...
