comment How many chips do you have left?
+1 to this, although, something to think about: occasionally I hear people talking about asking for a count just as a tactic. The theory is that if you're tanking and want a few extra seconds to think, you can distract everyone else by making them focus on determining the size of your opponent's stack. I don't really personally buy into this, but if you do, it'd be a reason to offer a quick answer.

comment Late live MTT: critique the play
Yeah, I don't like the rapidly increasing levels that many places offer, either. Makes the game a little less about skill and a little more about gambling. You can't wait for premium hands, because the blinds and antes will chip away at you faster than the premium hands show up (and there's no guarantee of action when they do). You gotta do some poker math and find out what kinds of hands are likely to hold up against wide-ish ranges of other hands (which I don't claim to be an expert in).

+1 for being explicit about not dribbling away chips on calls (although really, after you led off by complimenting my answer, how could I not upvote, eh?)

comment Defending a made hand, is it good to make a high bet?
What you say isn't wrong, exactly... he probably should've folded pre-flop. However, the question he's asking is what he should have done given that he didn't fold and play did progress as described, so this isn't really an answer.

comment Unexpected aggression and a premium hand
For the curious: I folded. I made my decision for two reasons: first, I'm new to poker, and have been advised to never take big risks when holding only one pair, at least on the turn and river, because going broke with a single overvalued pair is supposedly a huge newbie error. Second, given the previous betting patterns, I thought it was almost certain that at least one if not both of my opponents would have AA or JJ. Late ended up going all-in against Limper, and his pocket nines didn't hold up against Limper's AJo. Just for extra insult, the river was a K, too.

comment Unexpected aggression and a premium hand
@Daniel yep, 20BB. It was a weird table, you rarely saw any flops for less than $10 (5BB). I figured people just didn't want to fumble with their $1 chips. Could you explain where you got those pot odds numbers?
