Is there an inherent advantage/disadvantage to having a larger stack than your opponent in a cash game? No. There is no advantage nor disadvantage, because you play for his stack, not yours. If you have 75 BBs and he has 40 BBs, the maximum you can win is 40 BBs, the rest of 35 BBs being returned to you. I would think if you expect to have a skill ...

If you think you have the best hand then going all-in is about the only move that's left as a sensible option. That said, for us to be ahead, villain would have to have J7x, J8x, 87x (Two pairs); J9x, T8x, T9x, T7x (Pair+Gutshots); 96x, 65x (Open Ended Straight Draws); AJx (TPTK, although I doubt he'd be this aggressive?!). Otherwise, we're behind JJ, 88, ...

As you can imagine, your equity in a heads up hand with no rake, where you bet preflop and deal out all community cards without betting, will be 50%. Other variations of this, such as the dealer winning ties or the introduction of a rake, will lower your equity (and since this is a casino game, I'm willing to bet that they have something in their favor). ...

Is there an inherent advantage/disadvantage to having a larger stack than your opponent in a cash game? It really depends on the other stack sizes at the table. If you buy in for the minimum and everyone else at the table is lower then its fine. If there are people with max buyins then you need to buy in at that. You want to be able to maximise your ...

First of all this is not a huge raise. I'm assuming the SB didn't contribute money postflop. I wouldn't be too worried about a higher set because it's too unlikely to really worry about it, but it is obviously part of his range. The read said that he was a hyper-aggressive player, and without other information we have to include bluffs in his range here. We ...

What is neccessary to know is the following: Did he start to play poker after he was a successful hedge fund manager? There are some people who get successful and this time by successful I mean having money and after they got the money, they started playing poker. And there are of course guys who are good in poker and love it an do their normal job as ...

Once the SB chooses not to cbet you should certainly be leading here OTF. You're giving him a chance to draw out on you with way too many pair+gutshot hands and this board is fairly coordinated so you should be getting at least one call reasonably often. Once you check the flop, it's pretty close between calling or raising, but I think raising is slightly ...

MGM Grand is my favorite recommendation for first timers. The action is consistently soft, and they cater to 1/2 games. Other rooms are bigger and perhaps fancier, but they also tend to attract a more aggressive, more skilled player. if you are worried about losing your shirt, I would stay away from the likes of Aria, Venetian, Bellagio and wynn. I would ...

There are no rules per say, on how to behave during a poker game,which is why during the game, poker players are known to trash talk their opponents and spoil their concentration. If you would like to know the rules more in-dept you could find them HERE.

In the thread You linked, there are a lot information about this topic. I try to make a little summary here. Official poker rules doesn't say too much about behaviour at the tables(nearly nothing). There are a document, made by the Poker Tournament Directors Association, that defines a collection of rules to make the game better, simpler and more ethic. ...

I agree with Gaz above in that having a big stack means you can get paid more for you big hands. Also, as Gaz points out, if you have a big stack people have to think about potentially facing more bets on later streets. This can be an extra encouragement for them to fold. So I do think that a big stack plays better. I have however seen some players buy in ...
