Me personally I get really attached to hands and just cant let em go sometimes - I pay people off for way too much money.

: Laid on their backs they are both F***ed
I have folded pockets Aces loads of times when I know I am being beaten, (or at least so paranoid that I believe it) - as with cowboys with an Ace in the flop.
But the biggest hand I ever laid down was for a tiny pot, where I had what I thought was at the time the nut flush with Ace Queen, (I was technically wrong)
, hoping someone would be trying their luck with a king of hearts, so I bet enough to milk the player in drawing for another heart on fourth street or the river.
I thought all my Christmases had come at once when I saw him raise all-in after the 8 of hearts hit and before I hit call - I saw what heart it was... there was a straight flush potential out there. I thought soooo long about it, that I actually timed out . The guy showed his hand, and and he had two hearts too. King and a 7 - the 7 giving him a straight flush .
I was relieved I didn't lose my money - but I don't know if it counts, because I am really not sure if I would have called it if I had more time!!
Biggest hand that should not have been called but was...
In a live game, just recently, I saw my housemate, raise the pot to £50 all-in on the flop in middle position, with top two pair (Aces and Tens) to kill off a club flush draw, only to have one of the scariest men I have ever seen, call the £50 and hit his flush on the river . If it was me I would have hit Tilt and known better to bring more money to the table, but he did and made back his loss with a bit of profit too .
I like the thread - keep the posts coming - it makes for a good read!
PS - I have tried to use as many of the smileys as I could in one post - But I had missed out and of course .
