      That's exactly why those hands are called trouble hands, especially against villains that look tight. They look pretty and it's cheap so you take a flop hoping to flop big, you only flop a hand that most likely is no good against a tight villain's valuebetting range, but he's betting small so you call down, and end up losing about a stack anyway.

      There isn't anything you can do except knowing your villain better and choosing between two bad options: calling down knowing there is a good chance you'll get valuetowned because he's tight, and making a weak fold knowing you might have the best hand sometimes because it's always a possibility against an unknown. Either way, try and make that "what do i do with a top pair against that guy if he bets flop and turn?" decision preflop, or at least have an idea.

      Hope it helps.
