      This happened on rush table, and villain was new, so no stats or reads.(12/0 over 8 hands)

      Coming to the river, I realized this is not a spot I want to put myself into.
      Could I fold or shove this at some points before river?

      Our equity on flop & turn (assuming villain has at least 2 pair or better):

      Flop:
      Hero 27.49% 24.92% 2.57% AcKh
      Villain 72.51% 69.94% 2.57% JJ, AQs-AJs, KTs, QJs, AQo-AJo, KTo, QJo

      Turn:
      Hero 32.10% 31.25% 0.85% AcKh
      Villain 67.90% 67.05% 0.85% JJ, AQs-AJs, KTs, QJs, AQo-AJo, KTo, QJo

      What do you guys think, any advice appreciated.

      Does villain ever check/raise worse? Does his range strengthen on the TUrn if he does c/r worse?

      If he has a worse hand, I believe it's either gutshot(+pair), flushdraw or bluff.
      On the turn his fd hit so that puts his flushdraws in the group of hands that beat us, and we are only left beating gutshots/complete bluffs.

      I think this makes it a clear fold on the turn after he fires a full psb.

      On the flop I still think it could be an ok call, given our equity in the pot.

      I think I just bet/fold the Flop because if we fold the Turn on a blank as well , then we are better off folding the Flop immdiately though it is a minraise. I dont think he will c/minriase ATo for example
