comment What online poker sites charge/rake the least?
There absolutely is a best answer. Look at the rake schedules for a certain level, figure in any potential rakeback, and figure out which one is the lowest.

You should include stakes that you play at. Sites have different rake structures at different stakes.

comment Ante + BB all-in, what can the BB win?
You're not including villain 1's ante + 5 in the pot that he would take. Also, the OP states that the levels were 40/200/400

comment What tournament size is best to play if completely new to on-line playing Texas hold-em?
A $5 online tournament probably has a much more skilled field than a $40 Vegas tournament, if you could even find one that cheap live.

comment What tournament size is best to play if completely new to on-line playing Texas hold-em?
A sit'n'go is any tournament that starts after a fixed field size is attained. It could be a 1 table tournament, or it could be much larger - many online sites offer 180 or 360 person SNGs.

The point of the stackexchange network is to codify information, so that when others sites are gone, the answer remains. You can still provide the link, but you should also include the content in your answer.

Equity is the same, but the chance that you come away with some portion of the pot is not.

comment NL600: River Decision OOP vs Thinking Regular At Very Wet Board
Against your worst case range of flushes, sets, trips, and some straight draw+pair hands {TT-88,AcKc,AcQc,AcJc,AcTc,Ac7c,Ac6c,Ac5c,A4s,Ac3c,Ac2c,KcQc,KcJc,KcTc,QJs,J9s+,‌​T8s+,97s+,87s,76s,6c5c,QJo,JTo} you have 30% equity. You can profitably call a bet up to $60. Frankly, I think that sets, flushes, and straights are a smaller portion of his range than the other hands, and our equity is actually much better. If I get rid of the low straight, 1 set and 5 flushes, our equity is 39%, meaning we can call a bet up to about $100 profitably.

comment NL600: River Decision OOP vs Thinking Regular At Very Wet Board
A semi-bluff relies on the ability to make a better hand on a future street. One the river, a bluff is a bluff. Further, I feel that keeping your hand from being shown is a terrible reason to bet. You really think that having this guy know that you defended your BB with ATo and then bet the turn is going to help him?
