Chasing draws and giving up on the turn
So, I was thinking about this. Most of the time I have a FD or a SD, I will call up to a pot-sized bet, maybe a little bit more with a SD and a deep stacked opponent.
On the, flop my chances of making the flush or straight by the river are approximately 1:2, right. Right, but that's considering I see both the turn and
the river. Which is often times not
the case. Very often I call a big bet on the flop and when I miss the turn I simply give up and fold when faced with a decent-sized bet.
And this is, I think, a big
leak in my game. Because, if I'm doing this most of the time, then my odds
of hitting my flush or straight are not 1:2, like it would be with 2 cards to come, but more like 1:4
. What this means is I don't
have the correct odds to call a pot-sized bet, not even close.
Am I wrong in my assumptions, or am I playing the draws wrong?
