When I bet and get raised here, I don’t mind and plan to check call unless I fill up. But when I get raised and reraised, I get nervous. As I muck my hand, I feel like I’m making a bad fold and I should have continued with the original plan of check calling the turn and river.
River (board: 6d 2s 7d 7h Kc):
fnininja bets $10.
At this point I am thinking I made a good fold, because how could I be beating both of these gentlemen? Then to my chagrine they show the following hands.
fnininja shows Ad Ts.
fnininja has Ad Ts 7d 7h Kc: a pair of sevens.
pokerboss shows 2d Js.
pokerboss has 2d 2s 7d 7h Kc: two pair, sevens and deuces.
A disastrous fold that cost me a large pot. I don’t make many folds this bad anymore (those that go to showdown and reveal their badness, anyway) and when I make one like this I want to punt a small dog across the room. Humanely, of course. Anyone else out there folding to the reraise? Anyone capping?
