comment Minimum number of hands required to establish a conclusion about win-rate?
I know what you meant, but it's just not that simple. Sample size and average are not the only things that determine probability/confidence You need to know standard deviation.

Do you mean standard deviation? If so, that depends on your playing style. Generally, a looser playing style will tend to have a higher standard deviation, but it is unique to each player. However, to actually know your standard deviation, you will need to take take several 100 hand samples, calculate your win rate for each, and then calculate the standard deviation as follows: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Standard_deviation#Basic_examples

comment NL600: River Decision IP vs TAG 3 Barrel
I don't have much more to add than this as a standalone answer, but you can't beat any of his thin value range. Second, what can he put you on that would call 2 bets on this board and fold to a third barrel? IMO he is bluffing here very rarely - certainly not with enough frequency to make this a call. His value range is just way larger than his bluffing range.

I don't think all-in and bluff really make sense as tags for the site.

comment How often will pocket aces lose to 4 flush or set after the flop?
@Ivan, with strong postflop skills, you do actually want a few callers. 85% of one persons stack is less than 71% of 2 people's stacks. And, the most important thing is that you don't want to change preflop raise size based on your hand strength.

comment How often will pocket aces lose to 4 flush or set after the flop?
Can you list his actual cards, your suits, and the board cards/suits? It's hard to tell if he has a pocket pair on a two-tone board, suited connectors on a rainbow flop, etc.
