Ever been to a situation were you were ahead, you read your opponent on a draw and you keep betting. He hits the card and it sucks ,but you call just to see their cards.

I never continue the game just to see the cards. In my opinion, this makes no sense. I play to win money, but not to see the cards. In short, I have other goals.

It make sense to do so against a given opponent to establish whether or not they are bluffing. If you do not, you will never know where you stand.

That said, once you establish to a degree how someone is playing, then you need to limit such calls as naturally it can be costly. I tend to make such calls early in a tourney, for example, when you are familiarizing yourself with the table and blinds are low.

It's a matter of believing the villain has the hand or not. That requires an 8 ball.

I wouldn't call just to see the cards, it would be very useless and dangerous.

I will call sometimes if I know the opponent is super aggressive and he had bluff on that board. But I think folding is fine when we are unsure.

Happens to me at the beginning of a tournament, when I don't know the players. Thats why I started marking my opponents, depending on their play style. But that alone can't win my game.

I've done this many times and I'm trying to break the costly habit.

Maybe I’ve done it too many times. I just can’t help myself, I want to see what cards he have. Sometimes that curiosity kicks me out of the tournament. :) But like I said, it’s stronger than me. :) :) :)

Yes, it happens, especially if the opponent is too aggressive, I really want to open his bluff )

Love this answer, hehe, I'm similar but can't say I haven't called even though it was unlikely I was good!

I have sometimes called when I was pretty sure they hit their draw, but it mostly depends on the player and if I've had the opportunity to observe them. I don't want to automatically fold when the draw card comes because too many players know other players will fold and assume the worst and take advantage of representing the draw.

For example, I was playing live last month and the player to my right always seemed to assume that the river card hit the other player giving them the nuts. I was able to take advantage of that by often betting him off the best hand when a scare card came...when he would ask, did you have the 5 (when a second 5 hit the board)? I would answer, "Yep, how'd you know? I guess I bet too much."

all the time... and the feeling is always the same - why I did it (doesn't matter call or fold)...

I usually do it with rivals who play very aggressive or without much sense, in theory if I can see that they are like that, I should not even check it sometimes to see what they have but I am very inclined to see that it is like that, it is a mistake perhaps:jd4::jd4::jd4::jd4:

If I'm not so sure about my opponent sometimes I'll utilize it as a suicide strategy of mine and suffer half my bankroll just to see if you're bluffing or you really have something. Sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't. But you gotta try and catch a bluff.

It happened to me several times but not to often. Considering that i play poker around 12 years it happened to me very rarely.

If I am sure that I am lagging behind my opponent, then I will never call, but if I am in doubt and the amount I need to pay is acceptable, then .....
