comment Is Small Ball Poker In Cash Games A Good Strategy?
There is no "theoretically correct version of poker", except for toy games like push-or-fold on short stacks or simplified versions of the game with limit betting. Also, this style of play isn't simply about playing loosely because you're still tighter than your opponents; it's also about playing loosely because you can confuse your opponents and exploit weak-tightness.

? Rake is proportional to the pot, and typically rounded down or even omitted for small pots (in particular, "no flop, no drop" policies are common).

What range are you putting Villain 2 on, exactly?

comment 5/5 NLHE Flop decision against maniac and solid player
You want to squeeze now when you've flopped one of the best possible results for your hand and are now multiway without top kicker for the top pair, but you didn't want to squeeze preflop?

comment How wide should my 3-bet range pre-flop be in low-stakes NL live play?
The fact that this is situation dependent doesn't make it a bad question IMHO. Knowing that you 3bet wide in situation A and tight in situation B doesn't give you a good reference point for how wide "wide" is.

comment NL600: River Decision OOP vs Thinking Regular At Very Wet Board
Button vs blinds on 200bb with thinking players, I suspect ranges are a lot wider than you think. I can see him calling a bunch of speculative hands that you're ahead of. I'm not rolled for 600nl and wouldn't consider myself qualified for it either, but...

comment Should I call this river overbet with an overpair?
After making a larger turn bet, I would probably just shove the river myself. For live, deep-stacked play, the 3bet is probably too small, too.

comment What is a 'wet board'?
A paired board is usually considered fairly dry - opponent is less likely to have hit it because there are fewer outstanding cards that hit, and there can't be a flopped straight or flush (and even JJT doesn't offer as many straight draws as JT9).

comment How do you hide your tells?
There are reasons to vary your betting size postflop that have to do with all kinds of things other than your actual hand strength.

comment Call river all-in after missing flush-draw but hitting AK?
I can barely imagine a villain against whom I'd give a second thought to shoving the flop after being raised, really... he would have to be pretty much the nittiest nit ever repping exactly QQ. On these stack sizes, we'd have basically been priced in to call a shove anyway assuming 12 outs (e.g. vs AQ), and trying to flat and look for a card we like just puts us to tough decisions and doesn't really offer implied odds, and means we pay for the cards one at a time.

Why not 3bet preflop?
