comment What are the advantages gained by those who cheat?
@ChrisFarmer: legit software like trackers & HUDs are allowed on most sites but that's because they only ever give information from past deals and never ever from the current deal. Anything scanning the deal in real-time and giving advices / infos is forbidden on most sites. PokerStars, for example, used to have (and may still have) a very long list of forbidden software.

comment What are the advantages gained by those who cheat?
@ChrisFarmer: on most site anything giving information about a deal currently being played are forbidden. Real-time odds calculator are forbidden. "Preflop folding bots" are disawolled (say you have configured your bot to fold, among others, 72o automatically for you when you're under the gun). Apps showing your opponent's range given his action (and given the flop) are disallowed. Real-time odds calculator in tournaments are very nasty: when the blind gets high and the stacks low, the game becomes much more mathematical. You don't want to play against bots making only EV+ pushes.

comment Probability of flopping straight flush
@user2582622: to me probabilities computation are always interesting (and StackExchange doesn't care much if something as already been answered a thousand times somewhere else: if anything, if it has been asked a thousand times somewhere else it should be on poker.SE too IMHO). Regarding your question, it depends what you're holding: if you have, say, 62s, you must hit exactly 3, 4 and 5. If you have, say, 76s, you can hit T98s, 985s, 854s, 543s, ... So the answer depends on the which two cards you're holding.

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.
