Get to river opponent makes a bet and you feel like your beat. How often do you find when you call you are beat? For me its just about every time i get that feeling. Thoughts? Thx

Once you have a game plan, this is half the road to success.

It is important to differentiate between a bad feeling that you are beat simply because you have been running bad lately, or because you truly are beat a lot in a certain spot and should fold.

I'm happy to say that I don't call very many of those. But I do call some that I'm not sure if I'm beat or not. But still I look at how much it will cost to call, and what position I'm in means a lot. GL to you

A lot depends on the opponent, the board texture, the prior action on each street. For example a river bet or 3-bet on a board that you were the aggressor on and they just called along that appears to be a missed flush draw...I'm calling or even raising a good percentage of the time. Especially if they flatted my raise preflop. Sure sometimes it's a set or two pair so I'm cautious with just a pair, but def calling if not raising them if I have 2 pair or better on boards that look like obvious draws with a calling along opponent.

Really depends on how many possible hands could beat you, how the betting action went prior to the river and what the river card might have done to change theaction.

the main thing is to pay attention to the ranges of hands to which the river card is suitable, if it has strengthened you to 2 pair + then you can call a small bet.
