comment What is the best approach to playing against an aggressive player?
I think if a game has a strategy that cannot be defeated it is a game that needs an urgent change of rules. This is true for any game. Otherwise, why play the game at all, if you know a set of moves/decisions that will always make you a winner or, worse, a loser? There's been a number of attempts to make a Artificial Intelligence (AI) to play poker. Some of the programs are very successful, yet they are far far away from being unbeatable.(en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Computer_poker_players#Research_groups)

comment Giving off subtle, fake tells to sharks. Possible strategy?
I just finished reading Caro's Book of Poker Tells. I think it's a good read. It has a catalog of common tells, and will give you an idea how to use them to mislead your opponents.

comment Poker Ready Reckoner
In most card rooms/casinos you can take notes. You cannot photograph or video tape the game. I know this is not an answer to your question, I'm not sure if players use Ready Reckoner in Poker.However doing it during a hand would be an excellent tell to all your opponents.

comment Help with a tournament hand - KK in SB
Would you feel better if he'd shown two JJs instead of the J-x? Villains reasoning was probably like this "God, please let me flop a flush....oh Two Pairs...not bad either." Personally, I would have tested the waters on the flop...a limp after a re-raise does feel like a low or mid pair or A-K, A-Q, but, poker happened, he got lucky and flopped two pairs :(

comment What would happen in a professional tournament if a player was obviously taking performance enhancing drugs?
I strongly suggest reading Mike Matusow 's book 'Check-Raising the Devil'.:) In it, he talks about his addiction to ecstasy, cocaine, and anti-depressants. He also talks about winning his first (I think) WSOP bracelet high on meth. It is a well written auto-biography of a pro player.

comment Whose turn is it?
There's also "Option". This is usually offered to the big blind when nobody raised. I'm not sure if it's universal, but it's common in Montreal, and maybe in other French speaking casinos.
