Circumstances for calling:

1) Limping in mid-late position pre-flop when you're being presented with odds to flop a set or flush/draw (Suited Connectors, Low Pairs, Axs)

2) On the draw on the flop/turn with correct pot odds and even then it's a judgement call whether to bet/raise to try and get a "free" card (especailly if you've got a BIG draw).

3) You've got an utter-monster slightly out of position post-flop and are going for overcalls not looking to blast anyone out of the pot by making it 2 bets to call.

4) You've got a hand you feel could be 2nd best but the pot's too big to lay it down or protect your hand (i.e 20BB) so you're in "Check-Call" mode.

It's fine to call in a lot of circumstances (it is NOT fine to be doing a lot of "cold-calling" however) BUT it's certainly better to be betting/raising if you can.

For post-flop play you are generally aiming for this calculation

[(Bet%)+(Raise%)] / (Call%)

To have a greater value than 1.5 and preferably over 2. Not sure what people think of that value but I'm sure they'll let you/me know. (Mine's 1.92....making up for 1000 hands of being a passive chump )

I'm sure people will shoot me down for saying that stuff if I'm wrong but hey if I were any good I wouldn't be playing 0.1/0.2
