      Hi, because i am still waiting for my first strategypoint :D I have to ask here,
      in fixed limits tables, even if you had a win odd higher that pot odds, its a
      EV+ move, to call every single street if you have double pairs and the villain
      got the set at the flop? (for instance), you know, you bet the flop and he raises, so at the turn and the river if I do not get a better hand, you have to follow the line check/call, check / call.

      If you think you have 10% equity, and you are getting 15:1 which is better than 9:1, you might not be able to call correctly. This is because calling does not get you to showdown. Calling on the flop buys the opportunity to face later bets on the turn and river, and these bets hurt you.
