One might say that with 3-4 people betting and raising its most likely someone has aces...
I do not subscribe to this (even though its true often)and im getting it all in with Kings in that spot. Queens probably too online... ( I play AA, KK, QQ in pretty much every single situation preflop, I dont remember any exception).
The great T.J Cloutier might recommend you fold Queens in this spot based on players play styles and situations live.
I think it was obviously a good fold but even if there was not someone with Aces you were being asked to go into the pot 4 ways which significantly reduces your equity so you could argue that folding AA in that spot would also be a correct play. I mean look who one the hand!
In conclusion, I would like to say that the "Fold" button alone will not make me much money in poker. You need to systematically and constantly work on your game, learn new materials and strategies, track field trends, and much more.
Only if I do all this in a complex, I will become a successful player. But by making friends with the "Fold" button, I will save a significant amount of money and significantly raise my winrate. This will allow me to move up the limits faster and take my game to a new level.
I believe poker is not about how many hands you can play, it's more about how many great folds you can do. I think as much as you can get more experience out of poker following you can read better and you can find more tells and finally you cand profit more
Fantastic fold. I would be complaining about a bad beat by now.
But I'm learning…
In fact, the perception I have today is that premium hands are more difficult to play. If you have a 5J for example, you will know exactly what to do. FOLD !. But with a KK it gets more difficult. If you bet low you will be allowing others to see the flop. If you bet all in, you risk that there. Thanks the guys who had aces. If they hadn’t gone all in and only the 9T guy pushed all in, I think you’d call ...
