The point of hold-em is that your hand is the best possible five-card combination from all seven cards. So, in this case, yes, it is a split pot. All players (as you describe them) have a 6-high straight. That's the best possible hand, so that's their hand.

Yes, you might be 80% against a random hand, but unless he really is just gambling on his last hand (how can you know?) his likely range will significantly lower your odds. For example: You're getting pot odds of 42%. Your card odds are around 18% if he's only ever shoving AA in this spot, around 23% if he's shoving AA or KK, and 50% if he's shoving AA, KK ...

Unless you think your opponent only ever does this move with AA, you're likely to be at least a 70-80% favourite to win the hand. Maybe not the bet to be making with your entire net worth, but with a portion of your poker bank on the table, I'd call this every time. Of course you're not going to win 100% of the time (and it hurts when you do lose - ...

Your thinking is good, although with a hand this strong as QQ and no history you definitely want to push more preflop and probably got it in. QQ has the most value before the flop so make him buy the full value. This also eliminates the positional advantage as well. Sure, he may have AA, KK but what could you do? Personally, i don't like to pay 11 BB (or ...

I was on Bovada (not anymore, its totally rigged), and using an online hand converter to convert my hands to pokerstars, which seems to be the standard people are using for conversion. However, some of the hands didn't parse properly and errored in HM2, (about 30% of them). I didn't have time to spend figuring out why, I'd rather just code my own ...

If you're playing a tournament i think going all in preflop is kinda bad after the player raises 11 bb. You're almost 100 BB deep you can play more cautiously in MTT. No need to risk a coin flip or bad moment with QQ, unless you are playing a fast pace game (turbo <= 5min). But still deciding on going all in would look too suspicious. In cash game going ...

Nothing is random. Shuffles are not random especially on a computer, when it really comes down to it is all just cause and effect. However things are random in the sense that they are statistically random, and in theory random in a practical sense for the game of poker (or any other card game). Now there are holes in randomness with poker. In describing ...

I vote call. Villain did not raise on the flop or turn indicating that he was not likely holding top pair. My take on this particular villain is that the most likely thing he was doing was representing a ten in his hand because he believes the hero to be a very tight player and likely to fold a winning hand here. The fact that there was the blown flush ...
