What's the hardest laydown you've ever made? Where it just hurt to do it even though you know it was probably the right thing to do?
Playing Seven-Card Stud and got dealt trip deuces. Raised and had two callers, one of whom had an A showing.
Fourth street, the guy caught another A and I caught a Q while the other guy caught a rag. The guy showing AA bets and I make a crying call, the other guy folds.
Fifth street, the guy with AA catches another A while I catch another Q! I know how have 2's full of Q's but the other guy has AAA showing. At this point, I figure there's a strong possibility he already has A's full, MAYBE quad A's, at the worst he has trip A's with a strong chance to fill up on seventh street against my 2's full of Q's. He bets out...and I fold, feeling sick as I do so.
I still think I did the right thing but I didn't feel good doing it. The entire time, I was thinking, "I can't believe I'm folding a full-house..."
