      Hello desikuri,

      Actually it's not only the folding thing but rather you didn't play very well the hand either.

      I would rather consider Check/Raising the flop or definitely even turn and then just bet myself on river.

      But as played you can't really Call the river, you are very often against a very strong hand and very likely a FH while he picks such a line. Don't think that he would shove with a lot worse hands this way. Therefore it's a Check/Fold on river as you did play it this way.

      Best regards.
