comment How do you know that you “got your money in good”?
Bean: are you asking specifically about calling all-in or betting/raising all-in (in which case you also have fold equity) or both?

comment Is there a situation where just calling is justified with AK on a QKA suited flop?
@David Hirst: You wrote: "At the very least they have AK with a spade." But the board is AKQ and OP said it was all spades, so a player cannot have both AK and a spade. Which is kinda important because there are several hands which can have hit that board hard but still be very vulnerable to a fourth spade. So you may want to edit a bit that paragraph of your answer.

comment How good are the best poker bots?
(...) in No-Limit Hold'em. And that is not just for today's machine: unless major discoveries are made in AI there's simply no way No-Limit Hold'em are able to compete with good players. Regarding cheating: yes, it is considering cheating and PokerStars, for example, actively chases bots (and confiscates any fund found on botters' account). They scan the memory of the computer, they analyse mouse & click movements / patterns / etc. Bots also have a very hard time on site where players can regularly change their screen names...

comment How good are the best poker bots?
despite sharing many of the same rules, Limit Hold'em and No-Limit Hold'em are two entirely different game from a game theory standpoint. Limit Hold'em is pretty much fully "solved" and the best bot can play basically as well as the best Limit Hold'em players in the world. No-Limit Hold'em? There may be a few bots at the lower stakes on the poker sites which do not heavily track them able to grind some money, but there's no way a No-Limit Hold'em bot is winning a major tournament any time soon. The combinatorial explosion of possible game states is way too big (...)

comment Bully short stacks later on or try knock them out?
the SB cannot "raise to 1BB". Did you mean that he limped (half a BB seen that he's the SB) into your BB?

comment How is players raising each other indefinitely prevented?
if you and a friend log to a poker site and go to an heads-up (two players only) table, you can try it for yourself. You can min-raise (i.e. raise by the minimal valid amount), min-raise, min-raise, min-raise, min-raise, min-raise, etc. There's no rule limiting the number of raises AFAICT. You'll be able to do it until you run out of chips: "infinite" is a very strong word and a stack of chips is not anywhere near close to "infinite" : )

comment Question on Odds, Pot Odds and Expected Values
@Stefan: Indeed, I noticed I did a silly computation mistake, leading to values being to high (which you noticed too). So I deleted the buggy part of my answer and will repost it when I find the time to post the correct values : ) (probably tomorrow or so)
