      The UTG is quite tight and not very aggressive, so on the turn I begin to suspect he might have me beat with a set or AJ. However I consider my hand too strong to fold so I call. On the river I make top trips but I'm afraid of the full house. I block bet. He shoves. Now I guess I should fold, but I suddenly realize I'm not able to lay it down :(

      Basically I guess it would be standard to try to get it in with such a hand, but I have taken so many beats lately and I don't know anymore whats the right thing to do here.

      Since A doesn´t really change anything on the river, then I don´t really like your donk bet, if he has there AQ he would bet himself and by betting you´re also not giving player option to bluff river if he has there smt like KhQh
      if you bet you likely have to call shove, since he can also shove AK, bu c/c is much better option consider how you played it
