Calling on the river with marginal holdings OOP
When I'm the aggressor and/or IP, I usually know where I'm at. I extract max value with my monster hands and know when to get out when I get outdrawn or am up against two pair or suspect a set.
I make a raise with KQ for example, pick up a few callers, then get a tiny minraise, everyone including myself calls. The flop comes dry with a K. The minraiser bets, I call, everyone else folds. He bets pot-sized on the turn, and on the river he bets pot-sized again.
I can beat a bluff, but if he's value-betting, I'm probably no good. I have KQ with top pair on a dry board and he bets into the whole table. He could be doing this with AA or AK, and I can only beat KJ which he isn't reraising me pre with. Is he so bad that with multiple microstakes calling stations he's doing this with QQ or JJ? I can't pull the trigger to make the call and end up folding out of confusion.
I try to avoid scenarios like this, but every session I have one or two hands like this that are marginal and put a dent in my profit.
How do the experienced and skilled players deal with playing OOP? I try to avoid playing out of position and usually do, but at the same time, isn't it key to further developing your game to be able to play well OOP as well as IP?
