You're absolutely right. I was thinking big bets when I wrote the answer as well as in that comment. I'll edit the answer to fit that.

comment What is a proper starting bankroll?
True enough. I never played mid stakes Limit, so I was going off of my limited low stakes experience and what I found searching the internet. I think 200-300 should be fine for starting out at micro stakes or low stakes though.

comment Is it possible to play for real money online in the US?
Technically, it is not even illegal for banks to make the transfers. The law sets up penalties for financial institutions which process payments for "illegal online gambling transactions." However, except in states where online poker is actually illegal, that does not apply. However, banks don't want to chance it. They mostly refuse to process online poker transactions as a just-in-case approach, so that they do not have to worry about the specifics of what is legal where.

Pokerstars (and Full Tilt, and Ultimate Bet, and Absolute Poker) were part of a legal action by the US Government in April 2010. Each of them was involved in some sort of criminal activity (mostly various methods of tricking banks into accepting their transactions without knowing it was a poker transaction, which the US deemed to be financial fraud). It is the fallout from those activities that currently prevents Pokerstars from operating in the US.

comment How are side pots built?
When player E calls, he calls a bet of $100. He still has $25 in his stack. It is not returned to him, because it never left his stack in the first place.

comment Considering Weighted Ranges
Frankly, this is overlooked because it complicates matters. Most analysis sticks too close to the generic. I routinely remove some combinations of hands when performing these types of calculations, as that is the only way to get a real picture of where you are at. You are definitely right to take this into account.
