I am not the person to be explaining this but I give give you a small rundown.
My example is facing a river bet in position you have top pair, or a bluff catcher on a drawish board.
100$ in pot he bets 10$ if he is bluffing 30% of the time then...
30% of the time you win a pot of 110$ if you call
70% of the time you will lose 10$
110x.3 = 33
10x.7 = 7 33-7 = 26
So in this example you will be making 26 dollars every time you call.(average)
So in this example villain would have to be bluffing a lot in this spot for the call not to be profitable.
I dunno maybe get someone a little more experienced to explain this. I was just trying...
