John, where do you play? A lot of casinos won't allow a one card show for the pot unless all players have already mucked to you. Just curious.

@rodrigoq I should also say, I assumed you were talking about a cash game. In tournaments, usually both hands have to show no matter what if it's an all in.

comment What's the order for showdown?
Very true. Most times the order isn't an issue and the winning hand just shows. If my hand is pretty sure to be the best I don't waste people's time. Sure, it's nice to gain information, but you want people to enjoy losing their money to you.

Don't feel bad. Every poker player has thought about this before.

comment Set Mining: betting pre flop with 22+
Ha. I'm glad 1-2 is universal. However, I feel as if it's making me a stupid poker player because my play becomes very simplistic.

comment Set Mining: betting pre flop with 22+
Chances of flopping a set = 8:1. I'm getting at least three to four callers in a game where people only 3 bet QQ, KK, AA. The stacks are deep. When I do flop the set I constantly make 10x my original bet. See how I'm making 2 extra bets minimum? I'm not burning money. You also don't bluff in this game. Especially in a multi way pot. People call with middle pair no problem.

Toby, I feel as if the 1/2 game here in Oklahoma might be a little different than you think. 3 betting pre flop rarely happens. This is a loose game pre flop. Every raise has three to four callers minimum. That's why with small pocket pairs it's a hit and bet or miss and check strategy. The purpose of the pre flop bet is to build a big pot for the set. When I was talking about the 10 to 1 rule I was speaking to implied odds. This is a deep stack game that has few short stacks. Most players have 100bb minimum. Everyone is a calling station. You don't bluff in this game.

Ha. You haven't played much 1/2 have you? Every raise gets called. I see a pre flop raise take the blinds once a session, maybe.

The money won per hour was actually the stat I gave in the question.

100,000s was really easy back in the day with online poker. At a live game it's going to take me playing full time for a year. One final question, when playing in a live game how do you determine your bb/100 stat? Do you just estimate the amount of hands you played?

Fair enough. About how many hands would you say is a good sample size?

comment Is it impolite to leave a cash game when I'm about to be the big blind?
They were probably trying to get you to stay. Poker plays do that kind of thing all the time.
