Default Tropicana AC $1-2 game

So I hadn't been to AC in quite a while, and hadn't really been playing too much NL. I've been focusing more on limit, but had hoped that the terrible caliber of players at many B&M rooms would make up for my comparative lack of skill in NL.

It's a very passive game, and pretty loose. I'm UTG with A [img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img] 10 [img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img] and have abou $185 in front of me.

I call, another limper calls, then a raise to $7. CO calls, so do both blinds, and original limpers.

Flop is K [img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img] 9 [img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img] 9 [img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img]. Six players, and pot is about $40.

I check. It's checked to CO who has me covered, and is pretty loose, (he's been playing lots of hands for an hour or more but not raising too much). CO bets $25. Blinds fold. I call. Everyone else folds.

Turn = crap, maybe a red 6 or something. I check to CO, who bets $30. I call.

River is 3 [img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img], giving me the nut flush. I check, and CO goes all in. What's my play?

I felt like I needed to de-louse after playing this hand. The only street I am semi-comfortable with is pre-flop (maybe). Am I calling the river all in? Any advice on the rest of the hand?

Call, because he wants you to fold. He would value bet a made hand.

What are the stack sizes like here?

A $7 raise in a live game is pretty small, unless the stacks are small too.

His bets on the flop and turn are pretty weak. The flop bet smells like AK or KQ and the small turn bet looks like AK or KQ scared of a 9.

River all-in is either the nuts (99 or KK) or AK or KQ. Make the crying call here.

This hand would play a lot easier with a RR on the flop. If he has KK here and you RR to say $65-$75 he is pushing with KK, AK/KQ is likely to hew and haw and make a crying call. It will also likely get you a free card on the turn and not look too like a flush on the river if you lead for a PSB on the river.
