I know its a depends questions....but lets say you use your spidy senses and still come up with a coin flip decision.....is there anything that sways you to make that hero call or that smart fold?
If you're 100% sure it's a "coinflip" situation then it's breakeven to call in terms of money no?
If that is the case then it's not really benefical to call I don't think. You are never 100% sure though, so if at best
you think it's a coin flip I don't think calling is profitable in most cases as you're never going to be ahead to make it profitable enough.
So to put it in context if you're always a 50/50 on a call and you know 100% this is the case, then it's never a win or lose situation. However, because we're never ever 100% sure if it's 50/50 spot, it can never be profitable to call as we can only be at a "flip" at best.
