Feel that you lose but still call  0   
Anybody else has this problem...

It happens to me now and then I just feel that i'm gonna loose the hand but i can't stop myself calling Angry It mostly happens when I tried to raise someone out. It's so hard for me to fold after I put a large amount of money in the pot Angry

You have to know when to hold them, and when to fold them. Smile

Money put in to the pot on earlier streets is no longer yours. And if you can be quite sure to be beat (you have flopped TPTK, but by the river every possible flush- and straightdraw has come in, and your playing against a chaser) shut down.

Making the famous "bluff call" (calling a bet with nearly nothing or even complete air) is just throwing money away.

Its difficult to lay down your AA, KK, QQ, but sometimes you know youre beaten so best thing is to lay down.
In the past i couldnt do it but now i know when i'm beaten an can lay down.
You save a lot of chips with it Smile

being able to lay down big hands like aces and kings, three kind is where you make and lose your money,cauz its on the river you get raised reraised,ewven allin on a losinghand,when as your gut tells you are beat,and the best bet was to fold.youll learn that with time.better have a few chipz left for next hand than none at all. Big Smile

Yes i have this happen too, just because i am very curious to see what hand they have.And i think it's not that wrong to call when you lose sometimes because u get a read on ur opponent and u know how they play certain hands.

You gotta start folding them this will save so much,
But it may be that ppl notice that you raise is a scared raise and turn the tables to get you off the pot, its good to know when to fold, but also when to hold.
Also I like to show good lay downs, not sure if thats a wise move or not, but it shows the table I can fold a hand(know im beat), and if I re-raise your beat, now I can play some nice bluffs.

You should have a plan how to play AK when you miss the flop, as you will miss two out of three times.

And that plan should not be to always stack off with ace high. Smile
Aggression in poker is good, but one can overdo it.

I think a lot of people has this problem. sometimes it's called curiosity, i mean they want to see if they were right, but sometimes it's just the result of previous experiences in loose aggresive games were they scooped a pot against a bluffer.

if you only call You play as bad as You can. stop playing too many hands, and if You are in hand play agressive and maka pressure on your opponents. don't be calling station. Smile

Usually the right way to play, but there may be exceptions to this rule. If you are facing an extremly aggressive opponent, who will likely fold if you bet, it is better to check to him and call him down or checkraise him only on the river. Because he will surely try to steal the pot.
