      How often should you be calling with 2 over cards seeing as though it's a high 8 outs.
      Obvisuoly never with a paired board and 3 card straight/flushs on the flop but just in general against min/small bets?

      Do you mean over-cards? Like AK on a J82r Flop?

      It depends on what you play (NL or FL), but generally, you can consider overcards as 4-6 outs, making it a weak draw, so you should only call if the pot is 10 or more times the amount to call.

      Sometimes it can be a strong draw, for example, if you hold AQ on a JT5r flop, you have 4 gutshot outs (the kings) + your overcards outs. In this case, you should play it as if you had a OESD or a flush draw.

      Overpairs is when you hold a pocket pair higher than any of the board cards, for example, QQ on a J62r flop. This should be played as a medium strong made hand, as it beats top pair, but is beaten by 2-pair or better.
