Hero folds. Bad fold?
First off, I would have 3-bet to 60-75 preflop. Second, what is the flop texture? If you have Ah Kd, and the flop is 238 all hearts, or even 2 hearts, it makes a small difference. Board texture, wet or dry, is how you really evaluate this situation. in most situations its a simple fold, but honestly it comes down to board texture and feel. I find myself trusting my gut, and it never seems to let me down. I remember calling a guys river bet with an ace high, we both missed heart flushes, but I knew he had nothing. He showed king high and I won a $250 pot, but I would have folded 99/100 times. Sometimes, you just know. If not, well then brush up on your skills and you'll find after you've encountered the same situation many times, youll start guessing right more Please though, give us the exact hole cards, and the flop, and even your guess as to your opponents cards. That stuff helps a LOT
