Would you fold or not?

Villain showed lot of strenght, but I had two pairs. His range can be relatively wide, as he called a small raise from BB. This is why I wasn't sure he could have many broadway cards. He could have a flush, but unlikely. Would you fold or not on the river?

I also considered shoving after his raise on the flop, because I thought I had probably 6 outs to the full house and as a semi-bluff. Don't know if it was a good idea.

Re: Would you fold or not?

You've got a genuine hand here, I'm not sure why you are thinking about semi bluffing. Kind of plays like V has two pair or better. I'd probably be jamming the flop lol I can imagine jacks or queens are gonna be re-raising you pre but he could have K 10 also for a straight. I'd call the river at least. If he's got you beat then so be it

He plays like he flopped a straight.

The problem is that his range is super wide, so KT is definitely possible.

So a fold is ok. You live to fight another day.

What makes you say that? Villain has 7 hands of history. You have no way of knowing his range is super wide.

You have to call here. Villain raised his only played hand, so it's pretty safe to believe he'd raise with AQ or AK. You don't fold because of the KT monster under the bed. Of course if hero had bet larger pre, he would have made some trash hearts hand a lot less likely. As played there is no way to know what villain has. You have to be right less than half the time.

He is in BB and gets 1/4 odds preflop => wide range

That's typical thinking, but not necessarily true. It's completely villain dependent. Some defend wide, some don't defend with anything but the nuts.

10Jh and JKh not to mention JhQx are high percentage in range from flop play. Fold 95% of time on river. Check turn 60% of time bc sometimes u can have flush.
