Impressive fold. My main question is how you decided that a tourist had enough hand reading skills to put you on a rolled-up hand? Ya, it looks obvious, but I have seen a lot of tourists who are simply incapable of making even the simplest reads. Had you seen enough of this guy to be really confident?

I made a really bad fold at the 20-40 Commerce stud hi game a while back. The next day, one of the main villains in that hand went full-on maniac. A really experienced stud veteran (2x WSOP stud winner) looked at me and asked if I would ever make that fold again. He told me that my mistake was that I played the cards and not the players. Which was entirely accurate.

Which in part leads to my question about this tourist.

Interesting comment. When stud was a more popular game, I always felt there were local optimizations as to most profitable play. I've had players pointed out to me as winning pros from another locality who did things that I thought were egregiously bad. At the same time, I reasoned that I must be doing things that they felt the same way about. A lot of the time when I'm confronted by a strange player, there's nothing else to do but play the cards until I have a better feel for his game.
