In the long run, you will surely have a + result.
Not necessarily true at all...this is results oriented thinking.
I'll give you an example.....
Lets say I am out of position in a HU 6.5 BB pot and flop a set 300bb(effective)deep against one villain (the raiser) who fires at a A72 flop with two of a suit. I proceed to CRAI, and he calls with a big ace putting us mistakingly on a flush draw or worse ace or whatever.
We get it all in here as a massive favorite, but quite obviously on that board a CRAI is not the optimal raise against the range of our opponent.
Just because we encounter a great result, that does not have any bearing on whether our play was OPTIMAL or we even played WELL.
