Pushmonster

OMFG! This was so bothering me last night. Would any of you do anything different here? I mean I really felt that I was beat but it did not make sense. I am trying not to call of stacks but I do have the second nut here. Am I insane for folding? It basically would have either given me a $25 night as opposed to the $5 night I actually had. Are these the big folds you need to make or are these the spots you just have to say fuck it.

My stack would have been in the middle Hellmuth-insta-call-style...if he's got the nuts, so be it...props to him...just my 0.02 €

HAHAHAHAHAAH!!!! .05/.10 with a $25 stack and you fold there?

Good christ man, where's your balls?

Make the hero fold when there's $250 on the line. Even then it's a bad fold.

Esp. against pushmonkey. I highly doubt you thought this through. I doubt Push is flat calling in that cash game pre with AQ, and I highly doubt he puts you on QT with your raise pre.

You gotta get it in there slick.

I just shat myself. how do you fold that? And raise the flop!!! it's so draw heavy that there are so many cards that could potentially kill the action.

Yeah, that fold is a little over heroic. You reeled him in and fold to a push.....makes no sense.

I'd figure a chop most of the time ...

The only hand that beats you is AQ. It is a lot more likely that your opponent has two pair with KJ, given the play. I don't understand the fold at all.

If there was an auto-call button I would have hit it already.

i'm so confused. why did you check the flop? why didn't you raise the flop? and WHY DID YOU FOLD???

wait, is this a level?

when someone tries to gift you chips, just take 'em. it's always been my policy.

btw, i don't think you could've played that hand any worse.
