I hate letting someone catch up....
I hate slow playing when I think I have the nuts.
So I FLOP an ace high flush....of COURSE I am slow playing, turn comes a heart, the guy to the right of me starts betting. I call.
Then the river, this brings out ANOTHER 5 on the board, I noticed a 5 on the flop, so this guy goes all in, I'm thinking,
'Your sets NO good, YAY I CALL YOUR ALL IN!'
All I see is all my chips go to him...I look in shock at the 'Dealer details'
and see, so and so shows: Straight-flush.
I start cussing and leaving the comp, come back and do it some more...call my friend and whine
Now excuse my foggy brain, I don't remember MUCH of the details of this game, all I know is I lost and was out and mad
I let him catch up, because my friend said, 'Well I am looking at last hand and he got it on the river, that 5 was a diamond.'
So. That sucked. I am pretty sure he wouldn't have folded a straight flush draw...so maybe I didn't let him catch up....but still....I want to think that...the board being all diamonds and one heart just let me presume he had a king high, queen high, set....anything but the dreaded SF.
