I guess it will never happen to me to fold quads ....I'm too donk to do it
If I will face an oppo betting and raiseing and reraising my bet/raise I would think " well ... very well ... this time I will wiin a very nice pot" .... I would think he is not putting me on quads so he will be very surprised/disappointed at showdown ... and so on
ive just gave your post a thumbs up its a funny question, but the main reason is because its got the forum talkin about poker again, and everything is back to normal and got us off what happend at the weekend

Never folded quads for that reason. Tho I have timed out several times in omaha tourneys and later analyzing the last hands found out I would of hit quads and 2 times straight flush uhoh. Glad it happened in tourney tho, because if it would of been cash games Id been really mad at myself

I'd fold if a straight flush was almost on the board. Thinking of pocketqueens and QTJ in one color comes up on the turn. you have topset but you're behind any straigt, flush etc. the last queen commes on the turn but you can't expect that everybody folds on a bet on that board especially with the nutstraight flushdraw. K of the same Color makes it likely that the royal flush could be hold by an oponent, beause Aces are played very often. In other cases, I expect the other players to fold on Bets/Raises

When I first read this post I was trying to think of a situation where folding quads might be an option. I considered a scenario like this but then thought about it. If you've hit a set on the flop of all the same suit, surely you should be raising to stop someone hitting the flush. I would assume you raised preflop with QQ so there's a decent pot. Your opponent may not even have an out but if you check you're giving them a chance to steal. If they have the ace, chances are they will raise, so I can't see how you would get to the river without being committed.
I have lost with quads but I have played a huge number of hands. I have never seen a situation where a player would be able to fold quads without being an idiot. I really would like to see the hand the op believes was justified even though it's clear he played it badly since he had pocket 3s.
Posted by gratiz: I think it was 3 3 3 3 on board and he folded becouse he had weak kicker
I stand corrected lol. This is a situation where I could fold quads but I assumed we were talking about a hand where you had at least one of the quad cards, otherwise it's not hard at all.

Why would you ever fold quads? I have lost once with quads in three years of regular online play, hundreds of thousands of hands. I have been in situations where I had full house and thought the other guy maybe had quads, but I never even folded THAT. I figure it is highly unlikely the person has quads, and for those rare instances I will pay him off. Most of the time they will have trips which LOSE against full house. GL!

if you are afraid to lose a han with quads, there is only one option for you: play a site with a badbeat bonus. even if i expect someone to maybe have a royal- or straightflush i wouldn't fold, cause it's very unlikely he really has it and if he has it, well i will only lose one stack, and that can happen from time to time
