know when to fold'em?
Ok this is something that has been buggin me a little lately, tell me what you guys think. I was at a table where a guy called out a bad beat for himself when he went all in with ak, he called a bad beat and then the villain turns over a-q and spikes a queen. I then asked him why he went all in if he truly thought he was going to lose and he said "im supposed to". While I agree if you know your opponent has a-q you should go all in with a-k but I get gut feelings every once in a while and they are actually usually right. I have folded a-k to an all in and seen that a-q was the winning hand with a pair of queens and I would have lost.
My question to you guys is, do you trust your gut if it tells
you to fold queens kings or ak? I can say I have folded the best hand PF because it didnt feel right and I would have lost with my kings to a-10 or a-j when an ace came. A lot of times do you find yourself saying "I wanted to fold that hand" when you lose an all in to a weaker hand? I know "book-smarts" say you can never fold those hands mathematically but my question has to be, if your not totally sold on it can you fold knowing you will get a time when you feel much better about it?
