comment Must you show your cards if you are playing the board?
This answer is going to be highly dependent on the room and floor personnel. I have successfully made the claim that my hand is the board after mucking my cards and a player challenged it; my five cards are "face up". But I can see how another person would have ruled another way.

comment Cost Effective Ideas for Promoting a Poker Wiki?
@ChrisFarmer it's different because its a wiki, anyone can update it at any time, it's literally open to the public. Also, I'm encouraging users to post "esoteric" information. I don't want the phone numbers on there, I want info on new promotions, who the good staff are, quickest places to park for the room, etc, etc. It's not just a directory, it's intended more for "local knowledge" of the room. I hope that makes sense.

comment Good holiday gifts for poker players?
@Jon I decided to go with custom aluminum water bottles. I got the ones that are laser-etched they are NOT printed, so (I think) they are going to look pretty classy (they should arrive next week). I found a custom bottle company that was having a Black Friday sale, so each bottle is costing me less than $6 - I ordered 25 of them and they were very affordable. The bottles are red and etched with the name of our group. I'll post a pic here as soon as they come in.

comment Metrics on time to make decisions in live play?
@ChrisFarmer Indeed, I think it will be very hard to find this info. I'm guessing that it's measured in seconds - but I would love to find a source that I can actually cite. I agree with you though, I doubt many people have studied this formally

comment Good holiday gifts for poker players?
@ChrisFarmer this is both a good question and a good comment - both make sense! I'm trying to stay away from clothing because I then have to worry about sizes, male/female styles, etc, etc. I'm hoping to find something a little "easier" than that.

comment Metrics on time to make decisions in live play?
@ChrisFarmer thank you. I understand that those are maximum times but I'm looking for the average time. In other words, between the time your hole cards reach you and when the action is on you.

comment What would happen in a professional tournament if a player was obviously taking performance enhancing drugs?
I live in Las Vegas and often play with professionals. I've had numerous final tables with professionals at large tournaments at casinos that you all have heard of. There has been very open & frank talk about drugs, particularly marijuana and Aderal at the tables and no one says or does anything about it. I don't condone it and wish someone would do something about it, but I just don't think anyone cares.

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.
