@TobyBooth If that's true, then this is a great question :) .

comment Is trash talking legal in WSOP?
I followed that thing at the time, cause I was really curious if they were going to change it or wipe it out altogether. I agreed with Negreanu then and I agree with him now: that rule is stupid. Period.

You might be right. However, I'm not sure. Let's see what other people say, I'm curious.

comment What was the fifth card of the dead man's hand?
I'm not saying your question is not legitimate. I didn't downvote it and I didn't vote to close it. Although, if you really think about it, it doesn't really fit here... What would be the correct answer ? No one knows, apparently. It will generate a speculative discussion which would go nowhere... Asking about specific hands, decisions, game mechanics etc. is helpful to people who end up here (from Google probably). But is a non-answerable question about something that is basically irrelevant helpful ?

comment What was the fifth card of the dead man's hand?
Please please give me a good reason why we (we = people, society...) care about that. A guy died while playing poker (a Draw game, it seems) and we don't know what hand he had. Why is this relevant ? Should we also start debating what color the Titanic's captain underwear was ? Maybe it was white, but he wanted black. So he got depressed and that's why made that fatal mistake...

comment Trying to express NL betting rules formally, did I miss anything?
+1 Nice question. It's pretty complicated to implement something like this, but with patience it can be done. Don't forget the insane situations when 4 - 5 players go all-in, many sidepots will be made... Also, at number 8 second exception: "they do not have the option to raise". Why not ? They can keep raising and raising each other. A sidepot is made in this situation... I'll read it and re-read it and re-read it, to see if you missed something. At first glance, it's pretty complete...

comment Why can't folded hands compete for sidepots?
@Clinton The definition of a fold says that, if you do it (fold), then you forfeit your right to win any pot on the table. That's "why". You can't compete for a sidepot just like an all-in player because... well, he's all in and you folded...

comment Publicly available poker stats
I have a small question for you: if you find something that fits this criteria, what will you do with that information ? Are you trying to learn the game that way ? Are you trying to make an AI (Artificial Intellignce) system ?

comment Distribution of Badugi Hands
OK, so I put 2 Badugi hands there (4 different cards of 4 different ranks and 4 different suits). And made them... battle it out. So I got equity 33 % in one hand vs 66 % in the other. The first one had a heart and a club in it. So I removed the club and put another heart in there, which means it contained 2 hearts. Which means it wasn't a Badugi hand anymore. I made them "battle" it out again. So this time the equities were 37 % vs. 62 %. Shouldn't it be 0 % vs. 100 % ? (because 2 hearts means no Badugi which means no winning)

I put 2 hearts in there and the equity actually increased from 33 % (which was before) to 37 % ...

comment Should I call all-in here with bottom set?
@Silversana I guess I play more cautious than you... another example of how diverse and amazing poker is. I know that the villain has a worse hand most of the time... it's just... for me the risk of him hitting a straight or a flush on the following streets is a little too much in this situation... (I'm actually curious what the hero did here :D )

comment What's a good strategy for playing overpairs post flop?
Toby Booth is right: this is a bit too vague. A little more context is needed, because of the huge number of factors. If this was intentional and you want a more general answer, then this is also a problem; a good answer would have to make a few dozen assumptions, which means it will be very large and not very useful.

@Silversana Oh, I guess I didn't understand that. I guess that changes things a bit, I'll think about it.

comment Are there well documented cases of winning tournament by someone who wasn't looking at his own cards?
+1 This example is probably best. When I clicked this question I actually hoped that no one mentioned it, so that I can :P .

comment How to play online horse tournament when you lack knowledge in one of the games?
I'm sorry, I don't mean to be disrespectful. It just seems unlikely that you you're good at Stud Hi/Lo and not at Stud Hi. I see it as: Stud Hi/Lo = Stud Hi + Stud Lo, if that makes sense. So for you to know Stud Hi/Lo, you HAVE TO know Stud Hi. That was my point.

comment NL100: 2-Pair In 4-Way Pot Facing OOP Lead @ Wet Flop
Your analysis about a potential raise on the flop is ok, but the problem is CO and BTN are still in the hand. If CO and BTN would've folded preflop, then it would be a different scenario.
