When you bet and you get raised, is there a situation where it is justified to just call instead of raising or folding? In general I would say no. Lets think about this for each scenario. Passive Fish A passive fishy player re-raises you on the flop, you should fold. Passive fish are calling stations, not raisers. When they raise it is because they a ...

I agree with @david Hirst answer and reasoning. At the end, it always depends on how well you know the opponent player. You didn't mention in your question what sort of a game it was. Is it a tournament or a cash table. What about stakes? Are you the chip leader or the caller is the chip leader , or neither? These are important considerations too. Finally, ...

Your question is far too broad. There are many different variants of NLHE. Cash, multi-table tournaments that are either scheduled or sit'n'go style, heads-up, 6-max, 8-max, 9-max, 10-max, 11-max, live play, online play, etc. etc. etc. On top of that, NLHE is a game complex enough that it's currently unsolvable.

Or look at the following question on this site: How are side ...

I assume the value n is reasonable for a poker table (n = [2, 10]). In this case, it won't be relevant for the result. You start with 52 cards. You give the first player a card. The probability that the second card you give him has the same rank so that he'll get a pocket pair is: 3 / 51 (the 3 cards of the same rank that remained out of the remaining ...

I would call if I thought my opponent had made a straight OR a flush, but not a straight flush. Many loose opponents will call pre-flop with two suited cards, or two straight cards, not necessarily two "straight flush" cards. In this case, I am behind, but my two pair gives me a re-draw to a full house. I may call on the flop and wait till the expensive ...
