Agreed, then you start putting yourself in spots you shouldn't be in. Ie. you raise then someone min raises you, now your odds
are so good to call the small reraise, you flop top pair J's with a 3 kicker and someone bets a small amount you call, next card is a 2 you both check river comes a blank villain checks and you put in a raise and then get reraised and you call cuz its not too much more, villain flips over AJ, you lose a bunch of chips...on a hand you shouldn't have been in.... just made that ex up obviously but u get the idea.
