comment ZOOM FR NL2 - AA on wet board
to tell you the truth i didn't bother counting the scare cards on the turn; just by the looks it seems awful, the only good thing about it it's no monotone :) A final, pot-sized+ bet here it's the best, not only can kick people easier, its also cheaper than betting flop, then calling a turn/river. thanx jim

@Jim Beam, fully aggree. In fact i use the 4 only on planning about calling a shove like having TT and the flop is 987 i multiply with 4, since this is one-time move, the final "street" is actually the showdown (assuming heads-up), thus i must add the 2 streets = 2*2. Most of the time the very next card is used (=2) since this is the street the current bets are related to. Of course there are other topics related to this like implied odds, but let's keep it here :)

comment ZOOM FR NL2 - AA on wet board
Thanx. You're right, i felt into half-pot tendency which looks like a typical no-hit cbet but i thought it was enough size to kick any opponent holding anything up to 1-pair. So you say it's better/profitable to bet an AA, say, like set on a straighty board, betting pot+ sizes? This seems good, opp could fold even a 2-pair fearing he's against a str8. But after this play i'm limited to fold against stronger resistance on future streets on this bloated flop, no?

I also did some pokerstove stuff and found that against: TT,66,ATs,A6s,JTs,T9s,98s,87s,65s,ATo,A6o,T9o,98o,87o,65o i'm about 37% to win, but i found on ZOOM than most of the marginal hands just want to get showdown (etc. ATo), fearing for a check-raise. If i remove the marginal ones, i left with about 25-35% of equity at best, almost correct for a half-pot raise but so WAWB. So marginal :)

comment ZOOM FR NL2 - AA on wet board
i don't think pairs would bet on this particular turn, except TT or maybe 66. I also think KK,QQ and probably JJ would have raised me PF so i don't think it's a high-pair confrontation here. My Opponent bet on a complete blank 2 spades so i'm 110% sure he has something and most of the times i sense (and have "enjoyed" a lot) at least 2-pair, especially on ZOOM. Most of the time he calls with a suited-connector or small pair, then hit a set or a draw. He might hit his set but feared on Flop of a straight, then bet the turn a "safe" amount. Board it's just too awful too get a grasp.

@Chris Farmer, indeed, betting a turn after a typical pot-control check looks not so of a strength but specifically on ZOOM games, where everyone can just hit the fold on previous raises and move on to the next hand in light-speed surely must show something better than typical FR play. I don't really like to play an AA on a bloated pot by barrelling, then see a 4-to-straight card and face an all-in.. I usually err on side of caution here, i find many differences between ZOOM and regular FR on that subject (people tend to have stronger hands)

comment How to use poker odds calculators?
@skateboard34, but I am a bit confused on how to use them most effectively. Are you sure you're confused with odds calculators? I had the same questions as you, trying to perfect my game mathematically while the only thing i was really missing was a basic understanding of actual hand strengths and their relation to board. If you say you're learning try to avoid odds calculators and stick to basic understanding of your hole cards and how they relate to board, as well opp ranges before dive into math and getting lost.

i meant he tried to steal, not me :) Of course, i was about to enter dead zone, i'm living on miracles :) Still calling with junky hands like say Q3o just reduces my chance about 10% and makes a huge impact against an aggro's typical hands.
