      Is there any information about villain?

      Without any reads I can't fold the river, especially for a lower bet. The villain can vbet a worse A sometimes like AT and bet thin for value with a KdJ/KdT. Your bets are also smaller on the flop/turn so villain can bluff catch lighter and try to bluff you later on.

      He may bet for value worse Ax hands and your hand is quite strong so I´d also prefer call instead of fold
