      You're calling 2c to be part of a 20c pot. That's 10:1 pot odds, so you might as well call and see if you hit a monster.

      You can get yourself in awkward situations if you have a marginal or dominated hand on the flop though

      Hello BjornArild,

      It could be but more often it's going to be the problem that you starting to overplay your hand. Rather avoid doing that, especially with a hand with you can't really hit that much.

      Best Regards.
