      Known players:
      CO (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is CO with A, K.
      5 folds, Hero raises to $0.40, BU folds, SB calls $0.35, BB folds.

      SB checks, Hero bets $0.70, SB raises to $1.50, Hero calls $0.80.

      Turn: ($3.9) 7 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks.

      River: ($3.9) A (2 players)
      SB bets $2.30, Hero calls $2.30.

      Final Pot: $8.5.

      Results follow:

      Hero shows three of a kind, aces(As Kh).
      SB shows a full-house, jacks full of aces(Jc Js).

      SB wins with a full-house, jacks full of aces(Jc Js).

      Villain 10/8/8,5

      Basically on the river I knew that I was up against JJ or at least AK, cuz the guy was just too good/nitty to be valubetting me with a something less than AK or JJ. What I am trying to say is that is it good to fold against these kind of opponents on river where u know ur beat, or should I play just the way I did, because they could start abusing situations like these with pp`s or weaker aces.

      I think you play it alright - its too weak to be folding these flops against him even, but when a player like this raises you, gotta be weary from there on.

      Turn is easy check behind when to checked to - even though you give some draws a free card you are exercising some pot control (why he let you do this I don't know :P ) You also have Kh, so less combodraws are there and nits like him probably only raise on big combodraws/NFD.

      River you gotta call imo - he could be bluffing with missed combodraws etc (although unlikely imo) and he could be valuebetting worse Ax - but against his player type I think its a bit too thin to valueshove on the river.

      You have to be really sure you are beat to fold imo - you've only gotta win like 40% of time for it to be profitable - also remember its COvSB - the ranges are gonna be wider.

      Thanks for the answer... Yeah I instantly checked his fold to steal and it was over 80% so it didn`t change anything in this case.

      tptk it is hard to fold on the flop, so I´d played the same way
