comment NL600: River Decision OOP vs Thinking Regular At Very Wet Board
So you are running a post oak bluff with top pair?

comment NL600: River Decision OOP vs Thinking Regular At Very Wet Board
What hands will villain call $45 with that we beat? If anything, a bet of $45 will induce a raise from hands that we beat, putting us in a tough spot. I also don't think villain is going to be shoving here with any of his range - that would be a 10x pot shove, and I'm happy to lay this hand down getting just about 1:1.

comment Should I call this river overbet with an overpair?
@Svisstack If I do post results, it will be well after the public beta starts - I want this question to have plenty of time for unbiased feedback.

comment When should I use a polarized vs. a merged range?
No, I'm equating high value hands to hands at the top of a range. No bluffs. If you review the question, the second part asks if there are times when it is appropriate to use a range that contains on high-value hands, or only low-value hands. Also this answer does intend to be complete (yet). I have some thoughts on polarized vs. merged range but I will need more time to articulate them.

This question needs more specifics to be reasonably answered.

comment How do you sniff out a set NLHE?
Against an opponent range of only sets and 2 pairs, you are ahead. You don't have enough evidence in this hand to narrow his range any further than that. You can discount AA because that usually gets raised preflop, which puts you further ahead. With a $75 stack at $1/$2, there is also probably a ton of AK/AQ in this guy's range, which puts you even farther ahead.

comment Balanced Continuation Bet range
If you want an unexploitable c-betting range, you're not looking for a pseudo GTO c-betting range - you're looking for an actual GTO c-betting range. Unfortunately, that relies on GTO play for the rest of the hand as well, and that problem has not yet been solved.

I would like to upvote your answer, except for the last line.

comment Minimum re-raise in Hold em
This is not always the case - an all-in raise that is half of a legal raise will re-open betting in some casinos and home games.

comment Minimum re-raise in Hold em
@user988052 and that situation differs from house to house. It can be that if the all-in was half of a valid raise, it re-opens betting. Sometimes it must be a full raise. Some places might play such that any all-in re-opens betting.

If he does not have the 9s in his hand, his opponent could have the 9s, in which case his opponent would know he does not have the nuts.

comment How do you determine which player needs to show their cards first?
And by acted first, he means the first person to check, which means the first player to the dealers left.

comment What are Pot Odds, and how do I determine them?
No, the 50 from your blind is not yours, it is in the pot.Your current decision, from a pot odds perspective, is risking 350 to win 550. How that translates to your equity in the hand, or your odds of winning, is another matter.

comment How big an edge can you have on a tournament field ? ROI vs edge question
Same way you found your baseline ROI... play a significant sample of tournaments where you double up on the first hand and see what your ROI is in those. If you have access to real money online poker and a significant bankroll this could be feasible.

Voting to close as too localized based on this sort of question being closed at other stack sites (programmers.stackexchange.com/questions/121806/…)

comment How big an edge can you have on a tournament field ? ROI vs edge question
Yes, thats correct. There isnt a formula to calculate the advantage you gain - it is different for each player. In general this is not super important until you reach the money, where staying alive another place has a real dollar value.

I agree, this will be much better once we have suit icons.
