Hi there,You cant fold such a hands at this point.The pot is already too large.Prepare to die for it by raising/caping it.You cant assume or fear flush and straights on every corner.you have a Good hand (may be second best or third)large potMake a stand and represent the nuts while your still on the come.Your opponents fear tooCAP IT on cash gameThis might be THE pot of a night dont pass it and fera the worst only becauseyour opponents bet strongly.Who could be in this hand ?CAP it with the likes of Sammy Farha or Gus hansenOn tournament ...a fold if you're living large but a cap if you're low on chipsFolding here will be terrible imho.TOP/SSHE/HPFAP have many exemples related on river play.Even if we're still on the flop the pot is TOO large gentlemenI'am ready to go broke here.

Seems like an easy fold to me. Drawing to one out isn't a good thing.

Although fold is still a decent option here, I'm surprised that noone has tried to defend calling or raising as an option here.Everyone is looking at our hand and saying, oh, its beat. There are only 3 HANDS that can be beating us right now. AA, KK, J 10, of which, only AA and KK kill our draw. So what are the odds that someone holds one of these 3 hands?AA or KK don't seem too likely with exception of maybe the big blind who made it two bets to go. There was not alot of raising pre-flop which would indicate that those two hands probaby don't exist. Another indication is that there is alot of betting on the flop. I would suspect that alot of players have made a pair as well as a flush draw. J 10 is the real hand to be worried about. So how likely is it that someone played with J 10 considering that we know that 1 A, 1 K, 3 Q's, 1 10, and 1 9 are not in their hand. Thats alot of cards that are needed to make J 10 a worth while calling hand. So would it be too bold to say that maybe we are ahead at this point in the hand?I think that folding does not make any sense. My choice would be simply to call. By calling and not capping it, I leave room for the big blind to make a raise which would tell me whether or not he/she holds the dreaded AA or KK. If the big blind continues to play this hand, I would seriously consider getting out unless I catch my straight or 1 outer. For anybody out there who doesnt want to play because of the flush draw I have this to say. I suspect that alot of players are holding that draw, what are the odds that it is even going to come?My two senseI will admit that after first seeing the hand posted I immediately voted for fold, but after carefully looking at the hand, I have changed my mind.

I don't play poker and never played OM H/L but it's an obvious fold. You're drawing dead.

Well...the question asks what "I" would do, so...I'm capping it. But that's because I suck at poker, and want to give all my money away. Wait a minute? How did I even SNIFF a seat at the big game? This is crazy, I quit.

I would call and try to keep the pot as small as possible on the later streets hoping to fill up. If someone has the bigger set then so be it but I'm not getting out just yet.
