      Vilain is a fish 48/22 2,6 AF 51 hand. On the flop I give up to cbet. Since he is not gonna fold any pair, any draw. On the turn, I hit my TP and get minraised. I decided to fold, since there is too much hand than can beat me here.

      I agree with the fold but I don't really like the bet that much. It's more of a personal range construction thing but I check that flop to give up reasonably often and same goes for turn so then I would need some hands to call vs bets... AK without a redraw (TPTK) seems like a solid option since it beats bluffs, unlikely to get outdrawn and it beats some of villain's vbets too, so it beats his range quite well.
