Was the fold a good move ?
I was wondering about the 2 and 3 skill of the Ed Miller's video. Don't pay people off => fold or Assess your hand value and in my mind the call was acceptable. I must admit that this skill isn't completely clear for me so I refer to the skill "big bet on the turn or river => fold".

    No brain fold

    Yet you should think about your bet sizing. These weren't optimal. Try see what would have been better, and why.

    I was betting 75% of the flop and turn. The goal wasn't to make fold all the player but not having all the table behind me. I think the big bet of Vilain wasn't a bluff so he had a big hand. Perhaps a set of 4, or two pair (55 44 or 99 44). Maybe I had lost less money with a smaller bet on the turn.
