      Hey RazDirk,

      I would fold to flop raise vs this tight opponent.

      His bluffing frequency should go down when the board pairs on turn. So even with top trips you are not doing so hot against his range and could contemplate folding. You are basically bluff-catching.

      After you've called twice, folding river is only ok if you felt opponent would never follow through with his bluffs. If you felt he was playing ultra aggressive because of short-handed table or recent dynamics it would be a mistake to call turn and then fold river when every single draw in his range bricks.
