comment Bet with Ax3x3x on river?
No. Ax3x indicates offsuit which I agree is normally a fold, but what I failed to mention that this was the final table with only 4 players left, so to me, any A is good.

comment Bet with Ax3x3x on river?
Position already given - small blind. Flop and turn were junk cards like 7x9x but this is implied since they did not help hero or apparently anyone else. It just seemed to me that if anyone paired with anything higher than a 3 on the board I was behind. And the way this table was playing if I bet I might have been raised with a weak but better pair or even with a bluff.

comment Why is 7c2d a semi-bluff?
I think I understand that you are trying to get everyone to fold, but if they don't perhaps you can get lucky and flop trips? Flopping trips seems to be a long shot. What confuses me is why is this a semi-bluff? Where is the real chance for improvement? Isn't this just a plain old bluff?

comment Why is 7c2d a semi-bluff?
Not really sure how to add a hand history style format, I have a clue looking at some of the other posts here but don't see anything specific in the poker faq or meta. If by hand history you mean how the table has been playing up till now, the only other thing he says is that it is uncharacteristic that the 3 players limp in front of you. Also, how do you make the card symbols when posting the question.

comment Why is 7c2d a semi-bluff?
Ok. I'm reading the section again but having trouble understanding it. This is in a section on raising to steal the blinds, $2-$5, deep stacks, tight table, in the big blind, and 3 players have limped in front of you. Normally you would check with both 7c2d and not Qh8h. But every once in a while you should semi-bluff raise to perhaps $40 or so, and you should do so with 7c2d and not Qh8h.

comment Is online poker legal or not in the United States ?
Update: it turns out there are online poker rooms in the US that are free to enter but offer real prizes, so I assume (correctly I hope) that there is no legal issue with free games.

comment How often will pocket aces lose to 4 flush or set after the flop?
I don't recall the exact cards, I'm still learning to focus, but he had an 8, there was an 8 on the board, and he had 4 flush with the board. He made the set of 888 on the river, not the flush. I tried this on pokerstove (recommended below) and found that from his side the chances were only about 49:51 in my favor, which is probably why he went for it, in addition to the fact that it only cost him about 1/4 of the pot to call my all in.
