Default A Great Example of Not Folding In A Big Pot

So this was the most difficult hand that I had to play the whole night. I would love to hear comments about my play on all streets after PF, which I think is extremly standard. With a price that is so good the whole way can I ever fold this one?


Party Poker 2/4 Hold'em (9 handed) converter

Preflop: Hero is CO with K[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img], A[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img].
<font color="#666666">2 folds</font>, <font color="#CC3333">MP1 raises</font>, MP2 calls, MP3 calls, <font color="#CC3333">Hero 3-bets</font>, <font color="#666666">2 folds</font>, MP1 calls, MP2 calls, MP3 calls.

Flop: (13.50 SB) A[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img], J[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img], 5[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(5 players)</font>
<font color="#CC3333">MP1 bets</font>, MP2 calls, MP3 calls, <font color="#CC3333">Hero raises</font>, <font color="#CC3333">MP1 3-bets</font>, MP2 calls, MP3 calls, Hero calls.

Man o man would I love to see the Q or 10 of diamonds on the turn....

Turn: (12.75 BB) Q[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(5 players)</font>
<font color="#CC3333">MP1 bets</font>, MP2 calls, MP3 calls, Hero calls.

Well now I'm getting 15-1 and can close the action so I can't fold here....


River: (16.75 BB) 7[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(5 players)</font>
<font color="#CC3333">MP1 bets</font>, MP2 calls, MP3 calls, Hero calls.

Now I only have to win this hand 1 out of 20 times. I feel like folding is a huge mistake.

Final Pot: 20.75 B

Do some people actually fold this hand? I would've played it the same.

I think I'd play it the same... sometimes... because..
I might raise the turn or cap the flop; of which I'd probably prefer raising the turn and folding to a 3 bet.... and checking behind on the river...
would that be a good way to gain more from the drawing hands or am I making some kind of mistake with that line of play ?

I think we have too much equity on the flop not to cap.

I wouldn't fold this even if the pot were small.

Just because someone 3bet the flop doesnt mean you have to resign yourself to the fact that TPTK is no good.

I'd have capped the flop and led the turn.

folding to a three bet is a bad idea and thus, so is raising the turn. you've got 3 outs to the nuts as it is and you're getting 15-1 plus a chance that you're hand is good or you'll improve to two pair that will be good.

not the place to raise for a free showdown because you surely can't fold if you're three-bet.
