      should i fold if river bet is smaller?
      big bets often cry out bluff so i called him down. I think he would have checked with AK,KQ and bet smaller with flush or 7, at least that's how I would have played.

      I fold it preflop - no point in defending with hand that is almost always dominated.

      As played I check/call flop and depending on how aggressive my opponent is I might check/call turn as well. I see no point in callig river agaist an unknown opponent on this limit.

      I´d aslo prefer folding on the flop
      River: you´re always hoping that he´d
      - barrel turn with nothing
      - barrel river often with nothing
      These two cases doesn´t happen that often, and although you can call down against aggressive players you find yourself often being behind

      So maybe better way to play your hand is start c/r your hand and then going form there. Don´t think you get bluffed too many times at that point
