YOU DON'T HAVE THE INITIATIVE

There was a bet and a raise before you, you should fold.


ok so A comes on river and its a heart , i could be losing to flush or some donk chasing river with ace.

I fold and see i had best hand .. however i accept i will be bluffed sometimes .

what i wanted to know was did i make a good fold?

Given i was following the stratergy which suggest to fold if having to call 2 bb on river. It doesnt allow for this sort of move which ive seen happen a few times now.
