comment What is the correct calculation to make various combinations of Hold'em hands?
I don't disagree with what you're saying but this should be a comment, not an answer. This is not how StackExchange work: you are not supposed to answer "try again", no matter how correct your comment. Answers should be left to actual answer and people shouldn't upvote answers which aren't answers.

comment Kill game, how does it change your starting hand value?
"...please disqualify yourself from answering". Please stop giving orders and being rude to other users. In another comment you asked an user to "think" and "please delete your question". Now you're asking others to "please disqualify yourself from answering". I'm sorry but that is extremely rude and this is not how StackExchange works. Nobody would be losing anything if you were to begin to show some courtesy in your questions / comments / meta posts.

comment Missing the flop with AK
@Jon: note by the way that this is StackExchange and comments like "do us a favor and delete this question" simply because you do not like it have zero place on StackExchange sites. If you don't like this question, vote to close it. Moreover theoretical questions like pure probabilities ones (say "How many different possible five cards boards exists?") which are in no way related to improving one's skills are totally fine here.

comment Missing the flop with AK
@Jon: and don't get me wrong: I'm not saying that a 0.02% chance means nobody is going to experience that. It's a mathematical fact that some players are bound to experience that: but it is nonetheless extremely rare. During my years as an online poker players I've lived through several scandals (including but not limited to the AP/UB one where the software was rigged to allow superuser accounts) and one of the reason I've been a winning player is that I knew when to left shaddy sites.

comment Missing the flop with AK
@Jon: Totally disagree. It is a known and documented fact that there are rigged online poker websites out there (there are even companies advertising poker server software for which the "riggedness" is configurable at will). There's a 0.02% chance of not flopping at least a pair 22 times in a row when holding AK: if this happened to OP, he's totally right to ask such a question. To me if this happened to OP and if OP is playing on one of the lesser known and potentially shaddy site, this may be a good time to try one of the more legit site out there.

comment How do I calculate the odds of making a four of a kind by the river given I have a pair?
For the sake of completeness: there's 10.77% to flop a set, 0.74% to flop a full house and 0.245% to flop quads, which adds up to 11.75%. This 11.75% corresponds to the often mentioned "7.5:1" (1 / 8.5 is "7.5 to 1") odds to improve to a set or better at flop when you hold a pocket pair.

(*) when you go to the flop your opponents is, for example, much more likely to hold AA than 72o. Studies over billions of online hands have shown that the distribution of flop cards is skewed due to this kind of "card removal effect" or whatever it is called.

comment How precise is math in the heat of battle?
are you sure you can tell someone who's really calculating something from someone who is pretending to be calculating something? There are people who can do really great acting while their eventual action is a no-brainer. By taking time (say by trying to compute mentally "9879 times 3642"), they'd then put you off: you'd start thinking they have a hand requiring complicated calculation and you'd then totally miss their no-brainer hand. I really don't think "calculating" can be counter-productive because there's no way to know for sure one is doing that.
