Folding The Best Hand

[user38873] • Level 19: 4,000-8,000, 1,000 ante

Hamid Feiz managed to fold pocket queens after an all in from early position and the all in of Alan Gillespie. Feiz was in the small blind and said that he was "folding the best hand." Before the showdown occurred, he changed his mind and then said "I know what you got. You have pocket kings!"

Feiz indeed called the hand of Gillespie, who turned over KdKh]. The shorter stack had {10-Hearts}{10-Clubs} and was sent to the rail after the board ran out {6-Diamonds}{J-Spades}{9-Clubs}{6-Spades}{9-Spades}. During the hand, Feiz was begging the dealer not to put a queen out there.
