      some people say its dumb to fold a full house but its player dependent. mostly if you have the naff end of the full house then you have to be really careful. i think you probably made good folds.

      it is always smart to fold when you think you are beat even with a full house, you should always go with your read, analyse the hand later and see if you are wrong, but I think it is really bad to outguess yourself.
      the only time you don't fold a full house I think is when you have the big full on the flop (you can only lose to quads or few other full houses that came on the turn/river) say you have KJ flop is KKJ and turn is A, now you can only loose to AA or AK, but you don't realistically worry about those hands, you just go ahead and bet, same for quads, because you will be beat so rarely that you can't fold.

      If you felt he had you beat, then what can you do ??

      Also what was this guys betting ?? What were you putting him on throughout the hand. Or he knew you did not have he ace and put out a bet to scare you off.

      Hi kingkong2

      I think on a dubble paired board it's not stupid to fold a FH. It is player depended though. If you feel/know the other guy has the A then it's a good fold. And if you CAN find the fold button then I say Nice hand!
      I can never find the fold button in those situations :f_cry:

      Best of luck on the tables!

      maybe i am a huge fish , thats what most players call me . i just cant see making any money calling , sometimes u may catch some1 bluffing , or u may split the pot with the same hand , its like when u have the nut flush the board pairs on the river then a loose passive fish donks pot , the flush is never any good. so i fold. but maybe i am stupid

      I would have fold when the river hit the A.

      So it wise to fold lower full house.

      the original post really needs some bet & pot size info.
      for example, if the villain bet $3 into a 0.65 pot, it's a pretty easy fold.
      if he bet small into a big pot, it might be worthwhile to call & see what he's up to.
