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.

comment Why some people all-in in the VERY first hand?
You're right, playing some real-money games (even if they're microstakes) will let you see how it's done in the real world, not on some Facebook game where no one knows what they're doing...

comment Should i have folded here hero is cashcow5
You're right, it's a +EV call, doesn't matter that you lost. Given how short he is, you'll usually be ahead of his pre-flop shoving range...

comment mathematical profit
You're right, you will get a profit over time. What you described here is: making decisions that are +EV (estimated value). Look it up ;)

comment Have a question about texas holdm questions
Questions that can be very easily answered by doing a quick Internet search are not ideal for this site. Your questions (and therefore the answers) should provide more depth and add more value to the site.

comment Flopping top set on an all club flop
I changed your hand from 8d 8c to 8d 8s because you said the the 8c actually came on the flop. Please edit this if it's wrong.

comment Calculating the Probability of Reaching a Certain Amount of BB vs Hero
This is a rather unusual calculation, but poker does involve a lot of mathematics. So yes, you posted in the right place :)

It would be best to also present how you reached those numbers.

comment What is the value in using free poker sites to learn poker?
This is a little broad, but it's fine. From the looks of it, there actually may be a good and solid answer for this that doesn't blow up in size.

There will always be users that downvote randomly without a reason or explanation. You'll get used to it ;)

comment Shuffle in middle of hand
I'm not really sure there is an official ruling for something like this because the situation is extremely rare (this is the first time I hear about something like this). Big casinos or big live events (WSOP, EPT WPT etc.) might have something about this burried somewhere deep in their rulebook, but I think it differs from casino to casino and from event to event. I posted this as a comment because I don't have any references... yet.

What software did you use to generate the above workflow ? I think many would want to know.

This is a really good question, many experienced players get it wrong when playing live :) .

comment When to call all-in in heads-up game?
That was my first guess too, but I rejected the idea because the EV values seem very low to me. It's a heads'up match, how can Kings have only a 30 % EV there ? And AKs only 18 % ? Are you sure this is right ?

In the Hero's calling range table, what are the numbers below each hand ?
