      Preflop: Hero is BB with K J
      3 folds, BTN raises to $1.50, SB folds, Hero calls $1

      Flop: ($3.25) 8 2 J (2 players)

      Final Board: 8 2 J 8 A
      BTN showed A 4 and won $32.96 ($15.46 net)
      Hero mucked K J and lost (-$17.50 net)


      Vilain is a regular 23/19 , steal BTN 38. Cbet ip flop 73, turn 57, river 80 2,2K hand.

      I decide to not fold on the river since the A is a very good scary card for him to bet.

      Hey,

      Seems fine, if you think he bets his bluffs on A as well. You have the best bluffcatcher you get there with probably. The problem would be if he vbets all his Ax like that too. If he does you could consider check/raise river but only if you can credibly represent hands like 8x, AJ, 22. If you 3bet those pre, think between calling and folding.
