SexyAceJoker said:I onced folded a Fullhouse, AAAJJ , my opponent then showed JJ for 4 of a kind . I knew him as ultra tight and since he raised post flop and flop was AAJ i had one A and i bet and he raised me. Turn is a J I bet the A and he went all in , and to me something smelled fishy so i folded
Q: What does pocket rockets against trip dueces and a :turtle: have in common?ChuckTs said:Just wondering how disciplined we here at CC are; What's the biggest hand you've mucked knowing that you're beat?
Me personally I get really attached to hands and just cant let em go sometimes - I pay people off for way too much money.

I don't recall all the details about the hand but it was a case of once bitten twice shy.
This was about 4 years back, i layed down a diamond nut flush( A-x ) on the river.
I had flopped the nuts and some strong betting ensued with me and another player, even at the turn i still had the stone cold nuts and this guy was not relenting.
ChuckTs said:I posted this thread right after losing a big pot in an MTT and realized that i really should have layed it down:
had 23s in the BB and saw a flop of 33J or something like that
i bet, a guy raised big and i called.
turn brought a blank and i bet again, and again he raised
I should have stopped right then and there and thought 'what does he have?'
i mean if he has a 3 which he most likely does, then i'm beat (unless of course he has 23 like me; then we tie)
he could have top pair, but in an unraised family pot, why would you raise the BB with a dangerous flop like that?
JJ for an overfull also possible, and i'm a huge dog in that case.
So basically the only situation that i'm ahead is if he has top pair or a PP
Either way I couldn't let go of the hand and ending up stackin off vs his bigger kicker because I didnt take the time to stop and think; something essential to playing poker
