Ah yes, you're right. I tend to think about this a lot when I think my opponent is beat, but sometimes it can get me into trouble.
Also about minimizing losses, I've generally stopped calling preflop raises from others, if I want to play the cards, I generally always throw in a re raise(3bet?) to send them a message that they cant just bet the flop to win.
Just got a hand that I will post in a new thread tell me what you think.
*EDIT* NM I capped my new thread allowance(2) for today... I'll post it tommorrow.
