Trouble we find in poker is to have a hand with small chances for improvement, and your opponent already has a better hand or has a better chance of making a better hand than you to the river.
An example would be a top pair on an extremely drawy board.
Play $ 1 / $ 2 online with $ 400 effective stacks. You have: Ac: Jd in BB.
A player in late position climbs to $ 6 and you make 3-BET for $ 20. He called and the flop is: Jh: Th: 9c.
You bet $ 30 and he raises to $ 65.
What do you do? Your hand may be the best but the board is very dangerous and it may be in a semi-bluff, you may lose your entire stack to find out.
If this were an all-in call the call would be acceptable, but in this case the players are 200BB deep. If you pay this bet, two big bets may still be coming.
If half the deck will bring bad cards to you, you can not just smooth-call and feel safe with it.
This leaves things in two options: all-in or fold. If you go all-in, you will never get paid for worse hands, so you better fold to this raise on the flop!
Do you play like in situations like that? 60% of the time I fold, and 40% I push everything ...
In situations just like you play, ???

Those are tough spots, I heard a guy say once that 89 was easier to play that AA, you either hit or miss lol he's 100% correct though

re: Poker & Good hands, though not great on dangerous boards
good hands can be tough to play when boards runout scary or you get aggression from the other player on a scary board.

A very connected goat even more when it happens to play cash game I think that not having information of the villain I give instafold, now taking information of the villain that he likes to do it for semi bluf or something of the type I think I go all in more certainly this situation shows a lot of strength of the villain we are losing to many things on this flop.
