haha sweet, i don't agree in this in particular, if some raises you to get you out of the hand its unlikly he calls your hand when he can't beat you unless he is a noob.
On the other hand, if you got your read wrong, and he got the nuts, he will say thank and take your raise to reraise it and take a big bunch of your chips maybe all.
Poker is all about knowing how strong you are, and how strong your opponent is.
Its all about knowing your hand and his.
And a raise, is a statement like: your hand is good, but i know mine is better.
