Here's the thing I'm trying to get across. I've told villian a story with my betting, that I hold AK/AQ that whiffed. As such, when the river hits, I've done nothing in the hand to give villian any indication that I am capable of calling a big bet. I checked the flop and bet slightly under half the pot on the turn.
Because of this, when villian makes his massive river bet, with no reasonable expectation of getting called, that can only mean that he doesn't want a call. As such, I must disappoint him.
