      Preflop: Hero is Button with K, A
      1 fold, MP bets $0.35, Hero raises to $1.10, 1 fold, BB calls $1, 1 fold

      Flop: ($2.60) 7, 2, J (2 players)

      Turn: ($6) 10 (2 players)

      River: ($6) A (2 players)
      BB bets $4, Hero calls $4

      Total pot: $14 | Rake: $0.93

      Villian is 16/11 3.0 from 63 hands, he seems a straight forward TAG. I don't really see the A improving his hand unless he also holds AK. Can I really fold the river?

      Villian unfortunately flipped 10 10 for a lucky set on the turn.

      I don't hate the call since it's nl10 and 16/11/3 after 61 hands aren't conclusive stats. Once you know he really is some kind of nitty tag this becomes more of a fold for the same reasons i discussed here

      NL5 FR TT and queen on turn

      He has no real reason to bluff the river, and he's not good enough to valuebet a worse hand. Maybe he can valuebet AQ but he'd have to have floated the flop out of position with AQ-high, unlikely from a nit.

      Hope it helps.
