it shouldnt be losing your bankroll when you know better because you shouldnt be sitting at the table with your bankroll to begin with. You do have to pay this player off, flopping a set vs set you are going broke regardless, if you dont go broke here you played your hand wrong.
I guess I should be more clear in my posts, What I meant by "bankroll" was the total of his chips at the table .... not the whole "BANKROLL" as total of his financial poker empire. I can see where someone might think that's what I meant, I'll be more carefull in the future. I probably should have said your whole stake in the game.
And I humbly disagree about paying this player off, his description of the player is TAG, he put him on a high pair, and after a re-raise probing bet the TAG player goes all-in ... it's a good fold. You would still have 140.00 left of your "stake at the table" to re-build.
I mentioned in my last post that I am not immune to making that call, but I am getting better at making that lay down, Getting a good read and trusting your instincts in a situation like this can be critical. This is one of those hads that DON'T have to be paid off.
I would say to call the all-in in this situation is playing the hand wrong. But then it's the differances between people that make poker so interesting, sometines were playing cards, sometimes were playing people, it's the human element that makes anything possible at the poker table.
