$1/3 NLHE at Derby Lane. $500 cap game. $400 effective stacks.
Villain is a good winning player. He is a decent hand reader, and is able to put pressure on people in the rights spots. I have seen him three be squeeze, preflop, in very good spots. He has also been at the table long enough to realize that I have been playing very tight.
Villain UTG open raises to $12. There are four callers, including the small blind.
I decide to complete in the BB with Ah3h. We go to the flop six ways.
The villian then makes to comment, "Well, my aces are no longer a statistical favorite against this many people!"
POT = $72
FLOP is Ad4c3c
I bet $50
Villain, who is next to act, raises to $150. It then folds back to me.
I was tempted to call or push all in, but then I remembered what he said before the flop. At the time of the comment, it seemed like he was genuinely frustrated at getting five callers. Additionally, since he was next to act, his hand had to be pretty strong.
After long deliberation, I ended up folding.
How bad was my fold?
