comment Do I have to show my hand in an “All-In” situation?
Aha, now I understood what happened. Your opponents are right: typically you show your hand right away in that situation. However, it doesn't make any difference about who wins / who loses etc.

While technically correct, this seems a bit overwhelming for a beginner. +1 though :)

+1 I really like how you explained things ;) . I would give you another +1 for quoting Super System, but I can't :(

comment Chances of 5 way chop (flush board)
I think intuition tells you/us it's a very very small chance. Maybe 1 in 500 thousand or something like that. I don't think the exact number really matters.

comment Do two A's beat a wheel straight?
While more questions and hence more activity is desired on this site, there's no point having questions that can be answered with a 3-second Google search.

comment The need of calculating EV?
The context might force you to fold, even if a call is CLEARLY +EV. Think of the bubble, for example. Or securing an extra $3000 because there's a super short stack at the table. In these cases, how big the plus or the minus is might be relevant.

comment Research on the effect of a screen name or avatar in online poker
Never thought about this. For me, the only purpose of name + picture is to rapidly and efficiently identify a player in a big crowd. However, there may be some subconcious effects of this. I may be wrong, but I think there's a high chance some research on this exists. Nice question :)

+1 This is actually pretty good.

comment How can I use a player's decision to check blindly on the flop as a tell?
This is a complicated subject and a good thing you brought it up. Given the mechanics of this, I bet only a very very small percentage of poker players can use this effectively, most likely the top 0.1 %.

comment Finding leaks in your game
I know, I just... couldn't help it. In heads'up situations, UTG and SB are basically the same thing. So shoving with A2s is +EV or -EV ? I just thought the contradiction seemed interesting :) , you can ignore it.

comment Finding leaks in your game
"shoving A2s from UTG is a stupid move, but if you shove it from the SB its +EV". What if you're heads'up ? :))

comment Finding leaks in your game
Actually, there are a lot more complex tools that can analyze your game given the provided hand histories. Based on them, the software will even tell you what strategies to employ to improve your game. What PokerStars or other platfroms tell you is pretty much close to nothing.
