@TobyBooth I'm sorry kiddo, I'm just too busy answering questions on here and trying to grow the community. You should try doing the same.

comment How Gus Hansen came up with 30%?
@Realdeo yes, in effect you should be thinking about your outs and pot equity; it should be higher than 33% for you to continue with the hand. Here, he probably saw himself as having 12 outs - 9 clubs and three 3's that are not clubs. It's debatable whether you could consider the three A as outs (I'd have to know more about the hand). With the 12 outs and one card to come, you would have roughly 25% pot equity. So while this is not quite 30%, there might be some implied odds that would make the case for calling in this scenario - Hanson mentions what the villian had behind - it's very close.

comment How to use poker odds calculators?
You should clarify which type of calculators you are referring to. There's the kind where you input specific hands and a flop (if you want) and the app will give you pot equity. There's tons of mobile phone apps that do this. Then there's the calculators like Flopzilla or PokerCruncher (which I use) that will let you input ranges for multiple players and you can see how your moves do against ranges. Personally, I use both kinds and I will sit there and get curious about different hands - like how does AK do against a board with undercards? Thats the best way I use them to study.

comment Are there any good strategies for dealing with relentless bettors?
Playing TAG is only part of the equation. If you know you're going to being playing very few hands, then play for stacks and enter the game short-stacked. I would play TAG while also only buying in for the table minimum. Just because they are loose doesn't guarantee you a win. Play TAG with a short stack and fire multiple bullets if/when needed.

comment Is chopping the blinds accepted everywhere?
@Jon what are you talking about???? CA games have been raked for a while now. Plus they also do jackpot drops, just like most games in most cardrooms. Of course they do downs in high limits games, that's standard. But downs in every game? No - your CA info is just plain wrong.

comment Bigger than Big Blind
I don't think the accusation would be on the BB, the accusation would be on the "raiser". The BB and even the SB could argue that they unfairly lost extra money because the raiser shouldn't be at $200, but $100 instead. It's a solid argument if you think the raiser noticed the mistake and is trying to exploit it.

comment Miracle Full House Beats Me
Just because you lose, it doesn't mean that poker is rigged. You got a bad beat. IT HAPPENS. You deal with it and move on to the next hand. Playing for "several months", as you put it, doesn't even come close to the experience you need to feel out the game. There is absolutely nothing wrong with what happened to you.

comment What is the nature of Omaha starting hands?
@Jon I'm sorry that I don't spoon feed. The nature of a good Omaha hand is in my post. If you can't draw it out then maybe poker isn't for you?
