At a loss for this one, I hit one of my cards but it suddenly feels terrible, he bets quite big, and could have a King, but also there's a draw for any T, Ace, a flush draw, and my check represents weakness.

But I'm out of position, and have no idea where I am, so I fold. My thinking is he bets again on the river and there's very little I can call happily, so is folding right?

Hi Jamei,

You might take one more shot on the turn here, bet and fold to a raise. It gets him off of the more marginal stuff and basically prevents you from being bluffed, and he'll call with worse hands like QT and JT since he turned a draw. As played, I think folding to this big a turn bet is fine.
