My mistake - I think you're actually referring to OP not releasing his big pair in the face of resistance and not villian...sorry!
Yes, knowing when to lay down Aces or Kings etc is a disciplined skill and should be fairly easy!
I say fairly, as it hurts everytime. Generally speaking if you get raised on the flop you need to seriously consider how good your one pair is now, on a draw KQT flop with two suits you could be in a lot of trouble. This board will hit your oppionenst range with all manner of 2 pairs, sets, flush and straight draws.
