Default Folding your Royal Flush

You wouldn't, would you? No, neither would I, but this what I did do:

I limp in from EP with Ks10s. MP raises and is reraised by button. I fold my cards away.

Flop As 6h Js

Turn 9d

River Qs

Two left in battle each other to all-in. I sit and watch as my one and only Royal Flush sits redundant on the board.

Super weak. Sorry to hear that.

Play decisions and not results. You made the right decision.

I only play $25NL, so I think the pot was about $40.

I know I made the right lay down pre-flop, just kind of frustrating to see such a good hand go unmade. Guess I'll wait for the next one.

I already folded 3 royal flushes, 2 at omaha and 1 at HE.
No biggies

I've chased a Royal without the odds before just so I can say I've had a Royal. Very big mistake and definitely -EV. If it happens, it happens.
