Default Re: fundamental mistake on Turn?

You're thinking about this way too hard. It's just bets. It doesn't matter what the actual dollar amount is. However, you must always know what the pot size is in terms of the current round's bet size.

If you have 8 outs (4.75:1), then you need ~5 bets in the pot to call. In a 1/2 game, that would be $5 on the flop and $10 on the turn. But it's still just 5 bets to your 1 bet, no matter what street you're on.

SSHE covers this very well. If it's confusing, then you might want to try the DIPO method from King Yao's book. I don't personally use it, but it's pretty easy and covers all streets.
