Folding a premium hand in poker before or after the flop is not something that anybody likes to do. I bet you hate it, I know I sure do!
But sometimes it is simply going to be necessary. And this is the kind of stuff that separates the amateurs from the pros.
By the way, just so we are on the same page here, when I say “premium hand” I am referring to these hands: AK, JJ, QQ, KK, AA
