      Villain was playing 40/16/1.0.

      On the turn donk, I felt beat by many SCs, all better aces and almost all worse aces, some sets are also possible. Is this the right place to fold top pair with good kicker?

      Hello meridius,

      I'd say that yes, more often he has somewhat hand there, could easily be which beat us and likely rather just avoid any further difficult situations on river. Therefore folding is likely the safest play.

      Best regards.
