      I cant fold this one on the river against medium aggro donk (55/8/2)?

      Later got read on his valueline: KK minraise , low flop he bet 1 BB, turn 1BB, river 4 BB, he made same kind of "strong" valueplays more with two pair etc.

      I think you can fold it on the flop...

      It's a pure judgment call, a 55/8/2 likely is aggressive enough to make that minraise both with the nuts and as a bluff, so calling in position without better reads isn't bad especially if you've seen him do that before and give up. Folding right away would be kinda weak but would also keep you out of trouble. Deciding factor for me would be that i expect to play many pots against that player in the future, so calling off 8bb to see whether he really means his flop minraises is worth the price imo.

      On the river you likely have to call given those odds on the off-chance that he could be bluffing or "valuebetting" worse hands.

      Hope it helps.
