      what is your reason for folding?

      when you play a hand like this preflop then you are playing it exactly so that you hit a FD on the flop and hopefully a flush by the turn. since you hit, i don't see how you can fold since it is going back on the plan. if you hit your flush and fold it then i think it's best just to fold the hand preflop.

      i would suggest even raising and playing it for stacks on the turn since he can easily have a weaker hand now. his UTG range involves lots of big pairs - even with the flush draw and so you should look to be getting it in with huge implied odds here. if he has AA or KK he probably won't fold it.

      if you're not sure then i think the other option is to play it passively and just call. but i dont think folding is good here.

      Hello nipbourne,

      His bet sizing on the river makes his hand very narrow of course but whilst you don't know him, he could easily play even sets and maybe even bluffs or whatsoever this way. So I'd call down the river without any information.

      Best Regards.
