Your decision has a specific reading on your opponent’s tendencies – Note that a large salary increase is a good idea because it allows your opponent to play easily, continue when they have you beat and fold when you beat them. If you’re not sure where you stand, calling to see what develops on the turn is ideal, although you will often find yourself in situations of uncertain turns and rivers.
Suppose that someone rises to three large blinds from the large pile 100 from the center position, someone calls from the button, and you call with J Spades Suit 10 Spades Suit from the big blind. The flop comes 10 Heart Suits 7 Club Suits 5 Diamond Suits.
Your first decision is whether you should check or bet. While you may think that you should always check or always bet in these situations, your playing should depend on how you react.
If you think they’ll be playing in a very straightforward way against the lead, raise it with the better hand, and call or fold it with the worse hand, leading is an excellent choice. If your opponent is going to make your future decisions complicated by not playing outright, you should check it out.
As you can see, the way you play your hand thanks to what is expected of your opponent. If you’re only appreciative of how your two cards connect to the board, you won’t be successful in the long run.
