I always hear players talking about "getting your money in good" and to no be worried about the results. My poker coaches tell me that it's OK to take a bad beat as long as you "got your money in good".
I think I have a general sense of what that means, but what is the best measure to tell me if I'm making good bets along the way, regardless of actual results?
To be clear, I'm mostly referring to scenarios where maybe I go all-in at the flop and get beat by a gutshot or just a better hand that I didn't think would be on the board (like I have an overpair to a board of 10-7-4 and someone flopped two pair on 10/4 and pre-flop play didn't indicate a weak hand).
I use some analysis apps on my iPhone to measure hands. I don't think I've gotten into many (any?) situations where I'm worse than a flip. But does being in flips really constitute getting your money in good? Should I be aiming for 60%? Is there a percentage at all? How do I know if I got my money in good?
