comment When to call all-in in heads-up game?
Here after I had my 10 minutes of fun with ICMIZER bofore it ruthlessly redirected me to the purchase page :). I think the numbers mean (call EV - fold EV) this is why they are lower and A4 is the last hand with a positive number. If you note that you have only 1 blind invested you can add a bit less than 50 to each one and they look allright.

comment How much must Hero bet for Villain to fold?
I dont get your reasoning. The fact the villan is short is the exact reason I would fold preflop.I wouldnt want to go all in pre with KQ for 50bb and if we just call on the flop we have no room to manuver since the effective stack is so low and the opponent has the lead and position on us. The fact that he is short will also take our potential implied odds for any draws we might hit. Thus I would opt for the call when the oponent has a larger stack and we can apply our skills to outplay him postflop.Furthermore I wouldnt want to be involved in a lot of pots with Gus from Braking Badshivers:)

comment How long should I wait for a decent hand
Great answer! I just wanted to add that it might be easier for a beginner to look at some guides like this pokerstrategy.com/strategy/bss/1535/1( there are other good ones too) and then make adjustments with the tools sugested by brent.

comment Question on Strategy Calculation (from Bill Chen's Book Math of Poker)
The thing is that to me the sentence "so the probability values below are conditional on A betting." sounds more like an explanation that is added to the calculations below rather than a reminder that they are conditional since they are clearly calculating them as independent variables. Its kinda like "They are conditional but lets forget that for these calculations(because it doesnt really matter)". That said it does sound a bit like an excuse to simplify the math and if everything else is extremely rigorous I might be wrong.

I will look a bit more into it but I just want to point out that both answers yield the same logical conclusion if x>4% you should call :)

comment Top-pair and top-kicker (or good kicker) question
In general it is very hard to get an image of what loose opponents have(this is the advantage of playing loose) but your hand is big enough to not care. If he had a more substantial stack or your hand is weaker (compared to possible ranges) or you have a specific information that he is tight then you should pay more attention to pot control

comment Top-pair and top-kicker (or good kicker) question
The main factor here is that you have a monster on the flop - TPTK with no possible overpairs (he will raise AA pre). Only 3 possible hands beat you - 22, 99 and K9 while many players will even fold 22 preflop. Furthermore even when only few hands beat you many hands will call a flop bet(most 9s every king and poket pairs in between). It is very important to note that the opponent is short so he will be commited after the flop and he doesnt have enough to make the pot bigger than your hand. The fact that he is loose definitely helps but I would play it like that vs unknown opponent too.

comment Should I call all-in here with bottom set?
The answer depends on the table dynamics so far. The general case will be to call the shove because you should play 22 preflop with the intention to go all in if you hit a set. If you are planning to fold it dont play it pre. In your specific question the only extra information you provide that villan is a solid player. Is he agressive ? The only condition that should make you consider folding is if you have wached him for a while seeing he calls relatively strong hands and raises very rarely. If he is just an experienced palyer you should call considering he might have combo draw in his range

comment Should I have went all-in with KK on this flop?
Also not to forget that most villans will fold QQ(and KK) to a shove which makes the raise even worse.
