Buying YOUR hand
Bringing in the pot on any given hand is always a plus no matter how big or how small the pot. For years I have searched for weaknesses in my poker game
; mainly in NLHE. As of the last couple years I found that the biggest holes in my game came in the form of postflop play. I have debated with associates, read tons of forum post, and read many, many articles on the subject matter and came to the same conclusion no matter what anyone says. If you have the best hand "at the moment" (meaning with one or two cards to come) you have to bet like it. Of course things like a couple suited cards, or a straight that you hit can be overcome with two more cards, or even a pair on the board can make it very difficult to bet as such (especially in a low buy-in).
