UTG+1 is TAGy UTG+2 is tight but very aggressive.
Not sure if I played this right.
What to think about the action on the flop ?
I figured Aces + kicker, pocket aces would be a RR for UTG+2.
Bet the turn and was quite surprised they both called.
Do I bet the river as well or was I right to check?

i think its played fine... could jam river.
if utg2 is aggressive like u say he will bet the draw.
utg looks like AK
utg 2 looks like a fishy Ax
u should be good to shove river

Prob a river shove doubt aces check the river just in case your on like aq and no one probably has a 3 in has range if they called from those positions and are not fish prob against ak and maybe like aj or a10

Thanks for the feedback.
Felt the same way when looking at it afterwards, no bets on the river makes them look weak. Guess I was too scared of the spade on the river.
They both had AK, no spades.
Should've made the turn bet bigger too I think.

I would bet bigger on the turn too... Too many draw. Your check on the river is fine. You miss some value for sure by not betting, most thinking players fold on a river bet with this action.
Two pair may call down, but I only think you could bet allin. From a quick glance you have a little over $4 left. If you shove and get called, you are probably beat. Check is fine there. I sometimes miss out in these situations by checking behind on "scare" cards. Most players are going to bet their made hands on the river (though) there are exceptions!

I read the comments . Yep , me too , I agree , jam river , for two reasons 1st they show weakness , especially the aggressive , if he had flush he would have made a bet on the river . Now if sb had straight , the all in again would have made difficult to decide whether to call or not , maybe he would call , but either way it's our only option , to semi bluff the flush to make them fold . AK , AQ (KQs??) were the more possible hands for their range . 2nd Half of my stack is in the pot . For me is a good reason on this spot ,and with the way the hand developed , to go on tilt and shove to get my money back ..hehe, forget the second
