Am I missing something here?

This is an EASY call, right?

Table 1 - 300/600 Ante 75 - No Limit Hold'em
Seat 1: alwon (8,840)
Seat 2: SAdams84 (3,440)
Seat 3: jason jiang (15,979)
Seat 5: agent ungar (31,355)
Seat 6: vod120 (16,730)
Seat 7: Katpee (42,381)
Seat 8: columbo (16,365)
Seat 9: gbohmann (5,570)

The button is in seat #9
*** HOLE CARDS ***
Dealt to columbo [Ts Th]
jason jiang folds
agent ungar folds
vod120 has 15 seconds left to act
vod120 folds
Katpee folds
columbo raises to 1,800
gbohmann folds
alwon raises to 8,765, and is all in
SAdams84 folds

[decision time] but it seemed EASY. Even if I SAW his hand, it seemed even more of a good call.

columbo calls 6,965
alwon shows [As 7s]
columbo shows [Ts Th]
*** FLOP *** [Jh 5s 2s]
*** TURN *** [Jh 5s 2s] [3h]
*** RIVER *** [Jh 5s 2s 3h] [Ac]
alwon shows a pair of Aces
columbo shows a pair of Tens
alwon wins the pot (18,730) with a pair of Aces

The reason I am asking is that these type of hands are KILLING ME.

pot odds are 1.68:1 - meaning you need to feel you are ahead 37% of the time.

You were way ahead of that with the actual hand he held. What about the RANGE of hands you put him on? (reads help here, has he shoved A-rag before?).

This turned out to be the right poker play and you got 3-outered. Fire up another one.

Poker Stove says
you are a 68 to 31 favorite, I agree with Matt it was the proper play, if you can get all your opponents drawing that thin you will become rich, long term.
