re: Poker & Do you ever find yourself just calling even though you know you're behind?
With deep stack, When you flop straight with flush draw on the board, you can
1 -Bet minimum to see what the other players do. If you bet they will know that you made straight or on straight draw. They may re raise since they are on flush draw . If they reraise too much , just fold .
2 - Bet more so that the guy with flush draw will fold - Don't give free card - If he calls - wait for turn card . If he reraise , just fold
Play on Turn
If he does not make flush on turn,
1 - Bet more . If he calls , be prepare to lose if he makes flush by river
2 - Just Check. if he bets minimum, Your reraise.
Play on river
If he does not make flush
1 -Push all in
If he makes flush
1 - Just check . he may bluff you in this spot even though he don't have flush
2 - Bet minimum . If he reraises he may have flush. Just fold if he reraises too much
Flush draw board is always tricky to play
From the time flush appears on the board, just Check, check, check, check

Do you ever find yourself calling even when you know you're behind and do you have any advice on how to deal with this? This is my first post so i've probably done a few things wrong so i'll apologize for that now
