comment Playing 99 in early position
ahh i see. It does make a difference, although over 20bb is not enough. Personally, i would fold it early position with exactly 20bb if there were aggro players since you don't have the odds to call a lone raiser and don't have implied odds as well. This hand plays good on multi-way and early position does not guarantee that. If i knew a guy would raise me x5 preflop, that's a fold. With 30+, you play it normally from everywhere, assuming there's no crazy stuff around and you don't spend more than say 6,7% of your stack for entering.

You forgot the game type, you could play 99 differently in cash full ring, 6-max cash, MTT tournament early or SNG lates stages/or bubble and/or loose players acting after you. On cash, it's easier to play it anyway rather tourneys and quite straightforward.

comment Question about this Hand
there is the 5-card rule of poker. Yes, they're both 2-pairs, but they kinda read like AA66Q vs KKJJA. The higher pair of the two wins the battle.

comment books or articles on methodically analyzing hand history
Nice question. I've seen this one in other sites as well, instead of books they only recommend to study your opponents stats. Never seen a book for this topic, but for an article you just have to read this.

I don't know about these programs, but other networks (such as ongame) had a webpage history for any given table running. Perhaps pokerstars gives a secret XML url or something to these companies. Because OCR is downright impossible with the massive number of games, and these sites are extremely accurate for this.

@Varrick, suboptimal is confusing. I would gladly play a guy playing suboptimal because i know how much to charge him out of my good hands. If your opponents starts playing good, you'll find yourself in a situation unable to win money from them. But about stakes, the higher you play the more sophisticated the players, and the less winrate you'll have but perhaps more money if you're that good.

@Varrick, there's no a better game type :) I personally started with 6-max, before finding 9-max better, then MTT, then ended with SNGs because the variance there is smaller. I found this through many games, my liking and my winrate. The best is the one wins you more and feel good doing it. About x100 yes is around the same, but it's not set in stone. You may use a x200 if you feel exposed or x50 if you feel confident. But using x10 is plain wrong, if you get my meaning. The whole concept of x100 bb is to withstand the variance, while you're winning enough to increase the bankroll.

comment SNG $0.25 45-man, huge combo draw
@ChristopherBrown, hey thanx :) The problem with the hand was that table was short already and kinda changed recently (new players), i had say ~5-25 hands from the active players, and there was 1 big stack sitout. Not much to inform here. Yes, 30% was about my equity here, the problem was that i had 1 card only to reveal, i wish i was on the flop with that equity (60%), and say, fewer players and a shorter stack :). Nevertheless, i'll continue to analyze this, it gave me a headache.

comment SNG $0.25 45-man, huge combo draw
Thanx. I know the pot is already big, this is what i check most of the times, but i'm not sure about my fold equity. However, i agree that a kind of a semibluff was in order here (check my other comment above). It's just the 1-card situation i'm uncomfortable with. Perhaps you're right, with smallish stack and a ton of equity i probably have to gamble now, thanx :)

comment SNG $0.25 45-man, huge combo draw
Thanx. I believe my story was obvious to anyone (flush). The problem is that i was on Turn. I always have a problem to decide my tournament in just one card, y'know. If i had the luck to get this combo draw on flop, that would be a fist pump shove since i have 60% win odds, but i have problem with 30% for my life with a not so short stack (16bb is a good one with regular time = 10mins/level, no?) Although, i fully understand your points, perhaps it was time for semibluff :)

comment SNG $0.25 45-man, huge combo draw
@Dr.DrfbagIII, the 45-man payout structure closely resembles this. I thought i didn't had any fold equity since the big stack already had min-raised the flop (to other mid-stack) and feared he might just call me if i raise, so i tried to keep the pot small as possible. I wouldn't care if i were on the flop with that draw (easy shove) but with 1-card to come, tiny stack and no fold-equity i had a headache choosing what i say in my last paragraph :)
