comment Odds of three people at a 9 ring game having the same hole cards
This is some exciting (and relatively useless) piece of math. Basically the chances are very low. If there were only 3 people they are - 0.00002404889 = 0.0002% If I find out an easy calculation for 9 I will write an answer with an explanation

comment Set vs completed draw on the river - NL2
Just wanted to mention that if you had raised more on the turn (60-65) you would not face a hard decision on the river.

comment bluffing when somebody is all-in
This is an interesting question but as Jim Beam said you need to provide more information. If you want a complete hand analysis you will need to give exact stack sizes, positions, format(6-max, 9-max, online/live), exact bet sizes(and blinds) and any information you got from previous hands about the players. With the information you give the only thing I can say is that it is less common to bluff in side pots because you bluff only to win the side pot (0 in your case). However your play can be profitable especially if you and the remaining player had deep stacks.

I just wanted to clarify if you are talking about live poker or online?

comment 1/2 NL Decision
I am an online player so I am not sure about live play but your sizings are all off. 10$(5bb) is too big preflop even for isolation raise and then on the flop you raise 15$ which is less than 50% of the pot(too little in my opinion). This small sizing might invite players to bluff you and you should note that. That said after the raise you are behind his value range that starts with AQ so you can fold but his sizings are almost a joke too so he was also unintentionally looking weak.

comment How do you know that you “got your money in good”?
The theory is that you should look at his range and his stats and predict his response e.g. he can have ak,kk,aa, he would fold only ak(you decide that from board and his stats) so there is 10/22=45% he will fold(this is clearly oversimplified) Something I do is look at the hands I lost the most and discuss them with more experienced players because they are the ones where I most likely did not get my money in good. Many hands will require a throughout analysis and discussions to put him on a range and decide all the what ifs especially if you did not reach showdown. Sorry for the late reply

comment Pot odds for chasing a flush against unknown opponent
You are only partially right the fact that chasing depends on weather or not he bets big on turn. I just want to point out that if he always bets big on turn and you already got your flush you will get a lot more money out of the hand ( even though you had less chance to get it with only 1 card) In poker language - vs agressive players you have better implied odds so you might still want to call if he gives good odds on the flop

comment Odds of 2 pair running into trips on a paired board
You need to provide way more information if you want a complete answer - live/online, stakes, stack sizes, number of players, preflop action. Observations on players and stats are also be useful to put villain on a range. Then the math is easy and if you want to be 100% accurate you can use free tools like - pokerstrategy.com/poker-tools/equilab-holdem

comment Unexpected aggression and a premium hand
@Pops if my math is right on the turn there is 680$ in the pot and you have 100$ in your stack. Villan bets 120 (wich is efectively 100) and you have to pay 100 to try to win 780 wich is almost 1:8(so maybe you need to win it 1 out of 7 to be +EV). Also I wouldnt try to fit in a table dynamics that dictates 5BB raises preflop. You can exploit it by 3-beting a lot with either blufs or depolarized(tight) range depending on their calling tendencies

comment Unexpected aggression and a premium hand
Totally agree! Also probably you dont need to give that much credit to your image especially if you are tight. Not that many players will take it into consideration when they make a decision.

comment Unexpected aggression and a premium hand
I am confused if the blinds are 1/2 is your opening raise 20 BB ? And regardless is it accurate that on the turn you have 2/3 of your stack in ? If that is the case you have the pot odds to shove vs 2 pair and you simply cannot fold. Since the board is so dry you will be in a bad spot now and then but you have to win this hand 1 in 8 times to be +EV
