The joy of folding AA and KK!!!

By: IMAKUFOLD? @ 10:15 (EST) / 2 / Comment ( 0 )

I would much rather have a tournament full of bad hands (Category 5 and up) than to come across KK when the person beside me has AA...painful.  Or even more devastating is to have the AA and the K comes on the river.  Life altering, painful situations that can knock you from a carefully built throne.  I have been experimenting with folding huge hands when raised preflop when I can smell victory.  It was not easy to fold AA for the first time ever.  I had to force my hand to move the mouse to the fold button...very unnatural. 1st result?  I would have lost to a set of 6's.  I felt free and liberated, wind blew through my was magical.
I'm going to continue because it's all about looking for the hustle...I win enough money on position raises and well timed flops...think about it...This is just MTT talk.

Merry Christmas!
