    Is this the BEST FOLD EVER?

    Or an incredibly bad fold?

    If you're WRONG, it's an incredibly bad play.

    The answers become clear when u see the cards face-up. That said...what hands can she beat?

    To be able to make great fold you have to make bad ones sometimes too
    Not for the SBR staff

    She must have made the read early on to fold that quickly.

    And I bet her bet size was her pain limit to make sure she was right.

    Dayam, no cracking those aces even with a Q high boat and aces minor.

    Unreal. All 4 aces and 3 ladies on the table at once between two players.



    Almost bad beat jackpot worthy in a regular table game, just to prevent a fold in that situation.

    Good stuff.

    She apparently tanked for several minutes on the river they said, just that was edited out of the video.

    It was an incredible fold:

    *Live at the Bike, I saw Garrett fold JJ, which flopped Set and Made Jacks Full.

    The runout was all Face cards. He had Bottom boat. Getting +300 on the river, he folded. And he was right. Villain had KK for Kings full.

    Here's the Garrett hand I reference. He's familiar w/ opponent (Andy).

    Note: Andy didn't Re-raise pre-flop, and he just calls on Flop. Given that action, how the fk do u get away from JJ? Only losing to KK and KQ (I'm ruling out QQ):

    In video one it would be nice to see the preflop action. He could reasonably have QK or another QA. Not sure how he showed up with AA actually. Honestly hard to comment without knowing the preflop play.

    The Garrett hand very good fold. He has played with Andy a ridiculous amount. I liked his river bet, because he gave himself a little room to get away if he got raised and felt he was beat. Probably a spot where he knows Andy is never bluffing. There are a few hands that could beat him and all were in Andy’s range. If he bets like 20k on the river and Andy shoves 65k all in he’s actually in a tougher spot because Andy could have a few bluffs in there. I thought Andy played the hand perfectly, but so did Garrett, which allowed him to save some money.

    Pure speculation:

    Hand 1 it looks like she is on the button. I would guess she raised he 3 bet from the big blind (think someone is between them) she 4 bets and he flat calls. That would make sense that he could have AA or KK. If that is what happened, she has made a great fold.
