yeah, i think the turn is the right spot to fold. maybe even the flop. that really is a horrible flop for your hand. it does give you a straight draw, but your straight draw is easily beaten by a flush.

re: Poker & $5 NLHE 6-max: Getting away from top pair
Yeah, tiny pot against a nitty player. No sense in investing 3 streets with top pair 3rd kicker. I fold the turn.
Hide the results next time.

Start watching the bet sizing a bit closer. Villain bet pot on both the flop and the turn. When villain bets pot you need to defend less often than when they bet 1/2-2/3 so that means if villain is betting pot you should have either the nuts or draws to the nuts which you don't have on this board. If you have notes on villain saying they cbet the flop a high amount of time then ya I can see the call on the flop but the turn is a fold for sure.
Also, when villain bets pot he's very polarized. Do we see villain bluffing this board (esp.river) with his stats?
