i wouldnt fold that in million years playing a freeroll too many outs but of course after seeing one of them had the flush already , that will give you only 7 outs you are a mind reader thats who you are good job on this fold , you deserve credit , many players would have lost all their chips there . but we cant ignore the fact that you must have suffered before you clicked the fold button

Posted by Phisix:You would have called that raise and push with just AKo on that flop? Easy fold all the time.
apperantly it is the easiest fold of all time you have 2 overs + need 10 to a straight + need a club for the highest flush possible
unless you are a mind reader too and you assumed one of them played k7 clubs when raise reraise . he cant possibly had ak of clubs or kqc or kjc , so a flush seemed here highly unlickly because he called a reraise

want me to call the hospital and see if they still have my toe, that way you can make fresh drinks, instead of useing 100 year old toe,mines only 56 years old.
You caught that did you...?
...anyhow,...ya, go ahead and call,...I'm thinking that because it's a relatively 'fresh' toe,...that the juices still in it will add a little 'zzzing'.....!!!
...Now about the hand,...the guy who won it is a pretty good player,...so when I saw him shove I figured he flopped a flush,....but thought maybe I could recoup any possible loss from a side pot with the other guy...
...but then I remembered what negraneau once said ("AK is not a hand..." ,...
...then I remembered all the thousands of AK I've kept track of over the years,...which did or would have lost about 80% of the time,...
So really begrudgingly I folded,...and a good thing too...!...and especially because I consider myself the Ace high Flush King of ALL time....and will almost always go for it if I get a draw...!!!
...went fairly deep in that game... to about 18th before getting whacked...!

If you put all three hands plus the flop in an odds calculator, you're 30% to win. If you change the guy's hand from a made flush into 2 pair instead, you're 40% to win, if you give him a set of 5s then you're 36% to win (just to give you an idea of the kind of odds you've got vs a range rather than a known hand) .. So basically it's pretty much a push.. It's not a bad spot to fold or shove really, basically it all comes down to whether you feel like having a gamble or not.
Personally - in that spot in a speed/turbo tournament, I'd probably go with shoving, because blinds go up quick and you might not get a better spot to get a huge stack increase (I have a good ROI% for turbo MTTs - I play them to either build a huge stack or bust, I rarely stick around the middle of the pack).
But - given that you still have a pretty decent stack size, assuming it's not a turbo game, there's really no reason to gamble here.. If you had invested more of your stack, or had a smaller stack - it'd make more sense to get your chips in.
I'd say it was a good fold, but honestly - you could go either way here, it's pretty much a break-even / marginal spot.

Thats got to be one of the worst folds ever and you might as well have folded pre flop if you werent going to continue after that flop. You couldnt really have asked for a better flop and you would have to drag me, kicking and screaming off this hand!

As others have worked out, we can only fold here, if we are dead sure at least one of our opponents has flopped a flush. But that board gives enough room for sets and two pair hands. By the way, what was that min bet on the flop?

that hand pretty much comes down to your reads on ur opponent, some people say u cant fold this, yes you can why shouldnt you be able to fold this if you have decent sized stats on ur opponents.
we do have a top flush draw, plus gutshot too, and some more so if it was random, not slowpoke tourney its a clear shove for me but it all changes if you actually know people u are playing with though.
