On a monotone board and with no draw I think, this is a good disciplined fold. SB is rarely doing this donk jam without at least one club, so you are either slightly ahead or way behind, and he is betting more than 2 times the pot. Turns out you were also behind to the guy behind you, and the outcome is just hilarious
In poker, always following your instinct is good because that really comes from experience, when there is a voice in your head that tells you to fold this hand it is because you have already been in similar situations and you have lost, this is added to the knowledge you have of the opponents so it was a good fold. but there's something weird about that hand the player with KK didn't 3bet pre-flop
re: Poker & $Freeroll NLHE MTT: Crazy fold with AK. Do you often have a premonition?
On a mono toned flop with no blockers to the flush its a weird spot for sure. As strong as our top pair is - single pair hands are still considered marginal made. For this reason and the action in front of you, I like the fold. Unlikely both villans are on a draw and if they are we are going to need to fade quite a few outs going to the turn and river.
The fact one villan did not 3b KK preflop is note worthy. Surely not the standard play.
