Just to be very clear about a critical aspect: when you say "house SNG", do you mean it was a home game ? It's very important to know this because it completely changes the situation.

comment 1/2 NL Decision
I moved your answer to your question because it only tells what happened at the end of the hand, it doesn't provide a solution/answer to your question.

comment pineapple open face chinese shooting the moon
@Paulpro I was basing my decision mostly on what was discussed here: meta.poker.stackexchange.com/q/179/309 . Since both games are kind of "exotic", I considered that it would be best to apply the same treatment to them. Though there is a 50/50 chance that I'm wrong, I want more opinions, especially from the other moderators. Also, no matter what we decide, we should make the help page more specific on what is allowed and what is not.

The only one I can think of is boardgames.stackexchange.com , but I'm not 100 % sure it's ontopic there. It may be, try asking on their Meta site about it ;) .

PS: If there will be enough interest, we could modify the rules to accept these more exotic forms of poker.

I closed your question because Open Face Chinese poker is waaay too different and disconnected from what we consider to be actual poker. Generally, questions should be about any form of poker from the Hold'em, Stud or Draw families (about 10 games in total if I remember correctly).

comment Is it correct to go all-in when you have KK?
This is a little broad given the multitude of possible situations where this might happen. Can you add some details about the game you were playing when this situation occured ? Was it a cash game, a tournament, micro-stakes, early in the tournament, final table etc. ?

comment Number of hands played by a November Nine?
I'm sorry, but I had to close this since it's not a good question for this site. Answers to this (correct or not) provide no added value for someone's poker knowledge.

comment How do you bet pre-flop when there's no action, you're on the button, and you have pocket rockets?
+1 for recognizing the perceived button-bullies-the-blinds situation ;)

I'm sorry, I had no choice. I couldn't find any way to make it more specific. If anyone does, then please edit it and vote to re-open, I'll be happy to oblige :)

comment Table talk strategy
You just put me in a very hard situation: on the one hand, this is an excellent question whose answers can delve deep into the very core of poker. It would be beautiful. On the other hand, I strongly feel I have to close it since it's kind of broad. I'll try to edit it in order to keep it open because it's a really great topic.

comment What is the minimum raise after an all-in?
From what I know, in the situation you presented (player 3 has 700 and goes all-in), player 4 must raise a minimum of 600 - 200 = 400 more chips on top of player 3's total, so raise to 1100. But I would have to find some rulebook to be certain and I will post it as an answer in that case.

comment How long does it usually take for an online tournament to start?
@TmKVU You can register and then leave the poker client open. When the tournament starts, the table you're assigned at will automatically appear on your screen. Good luck.
