comment Preflop range for representing the nuts on every board?
if I understand your question correctly, is it safe to assume that the range you're after does not include any offsuit card? For example any time you could represent the nuts on a board where AKo would be the nuts (e.g. Qc Js Td 6s 2h) then if AKs is in your range AKs is "better" than AKo because it helps to "minimize" your hypothetical range?

"If he does not have the 9s in his hand, his opponent could have the 9s"... Once again I think that is not OP's question at all. OP's question would be "If on any board an opponent doesn't have the nuts, what range should I play so that I could potentially have the nuts". At least that's how I'm understanding OP's question.

comment Minimum re-raise in Hold em
@Michael MacGowan: the minimum re-raise amount in Hold'em is not that trivial. For example you can re-raise all-in (and in online hand histories it reads like this: "player xxx raises to ...") yet your re-raise is not "valid". I can't count the number of times where player A raises, player B calls, player C "re-raises" all-in and then player A wonders why, sometimes, he cannot re-re-raise... I think it's an important topic and there's definitely more to it than meets the eye : )

I think OP's question is not about how to potentially get the nuts on every board, but is about what his minimal range has to be so that his opponent can think that OP may potentially have the nuts. For example if the board comes 5s 6s 7s 8s Kd the hero does not need to play 100% of his hands to potentially have a 9s in his hand...

but then what do you need to have on, say, an AAAAK board? You have the nuts (you are sure nobody has a stronger hand). Or on a 99932 board. Nuts is any hand with a 9 but you don't "have" to have 92o, nor do you need to have A9o. Which would be "correct" to have here?

silly me. Of course. My example was poorly chosen: but now at least I know you're not talking about the "exclusive nuts". Back to the drawing board : )

what if the board is 7s 8s 9s 2c 3d: if you have Ts and 6s you have the nuts, because nobody can have Js Ts (you have the Ts). But if you have Js Ts, you also have the nuts. Should Ts 6s be part of the "range" you want to find?

I don't think the question makes much sense and... Your sample size is way to small!

comment How do you hide your tells?
"or is it better to deliberately give your tells at strategic times" I'd say that if you're doing it deliberately it's not a tell anymore: you're using deception to make your opponent(s) believe he/they found one of your tell. Is your question about online games or brick-and-mortars casinos?

@Chad: It's not a poll. It's a question that has an objective answer : )
