No, I don't mean folding a good hand. I mean going to the end with a good hand, usually all-in, when you've both shown strength but you don't know for sure that you're ahead, mostly in a cash game scenario. You have a very strong hand, but they have a well-concealed monster (or they're bluffing
), and then maybe they make a final bet on the end that leads you to believe that you're beat, but you can't fold in case they are bluffing. You just have to pay them off. It's only one hand out of thousands, after all -- no big deal, nothing to get upset over. Just accept it and move on is the best advice, I think.
Now on the other hand, I'm not sure what "shipping your chips" means. Anyone care to elaborate?
