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?

comment bluffing when somebody is all-in
I like your analysis. BUT I don't think that you're accounting for the fact that this was a tournament. And while there is no details by the OP, it sounds like it was late in the tournament too. So, I think the plays are slightly mitigated by those facts and they need to be taken into account.

comment Live NLHE Tournament Chip Denominations
You're worrying about minutiae and need to focus on the tourney. Worry more about playing clear, focused poker and the rest of things (like chip values) will fall into place just fine.

comment Are both a straight and a full-house possible on the same flop?
I think the OP has basic misunderstandings of poker. I think you need to add more clarity to your question in order to better help you. BE SURE you know the definitions of (1) straight (2) straight flush (3) full house (boat) and (4) flop. As your question stands now, you have to remember that a full house only exists when a pair is on the board. And a pair on the board would make a straight and straight flush impossible.

comment Number of hands played by a November Nine?
I really hate to downvote anyone but there's just so many things wrong with this answer. None of the numbers in it make sense or are even close!

comment Four of a kind and Three of a kind at the same time. What are the odds?
@ITDE "this can [occur] with any starting hand" shows a fundamental misunderstanding of probabilities. Can't help you.

comment How do you know that you “got your money in good”?
Thanks. I'd love to hear your comments on the raising side. The all-ins are, IMO, the easier of the two. But the calling and raising (and even more specifically, on the flop) are much more challenging to decide if you "got your money in good".

comment Four of a kind and Three of a kind at the same time. What are the odds?
@ITDE but these odds DO depend on the starting hand. You can't just calculate out a board without knowing which cards you hold (or have otherwise been burned). So you need to provide more clarification on what you're looking for. Otherwise the question is useless.

comment Pot odds for chasing a flush against unknown opponent
You won't get correct pot odds on 100% of your bet, but you will on the amount that you're already calling. Also, some of the bad odds is mitigated by the fold equity of your opponent. To be certain, it IS an unusual play, but I can see the line behind it - having two cards to come (not just one) is the best thing for your draw.
