I have played many years and folded lots of good hands and that's the reason I'm still alive in this game . one of the most difficult folds I had experienced was :
I had JJ and was in an early position to open the raise, big blind reraised me and I called the raise. on the flop, AJ4 came he checked I raised he reraised and I called again on turn 7 came he raised and I just called again and on river 8 came and he shoved all-in and I thought about it a lot and fold my hand and told him that it seems like you have aces, he showed me his ACES just to tell me how good he is
I had a similar situation, played for real money, I had a full house on the flop, I raised the bets a little, my opponent supported the game, but two fives fell on the turn and river, the opponent went to wabank and my intuition worked. his square! I folded my cards and there really was four of a kind
I can't tell you my most difficult fold - there has been so many. I struggle with folding trips or aces post flop. Those folds occur relatively often and those are hard. There certainly are harder folds but those are rare so I do not remember them now.
Kings, when amateur went all in preflop and his body language told me he had AA so I folded and called him out for it and showed my fold. it wasn't that hard of a fold but we ran it to see what came out and a K would have been out on the flop so I would have won but still made the right fold. Home game by the way. real life I hate folding like straight flush draws when villain over bets and I hit.
Well, the most recent one was when I had pocket aces and folded post flop after a raise and a reraise on a dry board. Both players then went all in, one of them had only a King as high pair and the other flopped a set of 7.
it was at 6 holdem at the very beginning when I was learning it hit me flush and together at the table the possibility of a full house, I paid more without knowing that the flush won from the full house and had a profit of 150 dollars
