It's not much good simply throwing cash into the pot, you have to think what's happening around you. There's $100 in the pot in a $20/$10 game. There are three left in the pot, you and two others, the flop goes down and you have trips, but there are two suited cards on the board. The two villains both check.
How much do you bet?
There could be two possible flushes against you, so a $20 bet is worse than useless, it gives both villains too favorable pot odds and they will call, You need a bet that will drive them out, one that gives them poor pot odds. A $50 and up bet is needed, (the higher the better), but I would shy away from going all in.

We must always think. Not only in poker

Also depends how deep the stacks are. If you bet $50 and are giving me 3-1 pot odds, but we both have 100BB's, then my implied odds might make calling correct. But if your a short stack where I can not win to much more than maybe its not worth the call. Like everything else in poker, it depends on so much more than just the cards, etc.

Depends on the amount of bet, the amount of your stack, the blin blings you have, your cards in hand and cards on the table, your position and the analysis of your rivals, all this plays an important role in your decisions

In poker there are no ready-made solutions. A lot of features for each hand.
