comment Bet with Ax3x3x on river?
Too few details. What's your position ? What was the flop and the turn ?

comment Is online poker legal or not in the United States ?
OK, here's an interesting question: If that money was seized by the DoJ, where did all that money go ? Did DoJ just take it and used it to buy new cars ? Isn't that just a nice big fancy way of robberry / theft ? And we're talking of course about millions and millions of dollars.

comment Pot odds with low chip stack
Also, calling 700 chips when you have a stack of 1000 chips basically means that you're ready to go all-in. You can't just call 700 out of 1000 and then fold on a later street.

comment How do you hide your tells?
Nr 4 is very important and I rarely see it to be recommended. Legs give very important tells, even if they're usually not visible.

comment Raising after an all in
I would like to add that, if the raise is at least a 2800 total, then side-pots are built. See here: poker.stackexchange.com/q/462/309

comment Could I have won more money with top set on the flop?
Given that he's passive, there was a great chance that he would fold an all-in raise from you. I would've just raised to $100, he would have good odds to call it...

comment $1/$2 Live - Bottom set on flop and facing 3bet
I think that the 4-bet is actually a 3-bet... the raise from 15 to 45 is a just a raise... the re-raise to 145 is actually the 3-bet. Please check.

comment $1/$2 Live - Turned top two pair facing heat (line check)
@TobyBooth You're right. I also think that sets are easily in his range and, given how he plays, he surely represents pocket nines or threes. I guess we'll never know...

comment NL200 Zoom: Top 2-Pair Deepstacked @ Wet Board
Aha. Well, I think I would go all-in here. There are too many numbers, I don't really know how to justify this mathematically, but it's just a feeling. I doubt it would be a bad play...

Now I'm super curious: why check on the flop ?

comment Can a bettor concede his hand without showing it?
I mean the classic version: Start from the button and go to his left and keep going till you find a player with cards. This guy is the one in earliest position.

comment Starting a Friendly Poker Ring
Remove the couch from your living room, and bring in about 2 tables. Put them side-by-side and you have a poker table. Go to a neighbor and borrow some chairs. The dealer part is more tricky, depends on where you live... PS: You do realize I'm ironic, right ? Or am I ?

comment How to maximize expectation with pocket aces and an Aces Cracked bonus running
Is this live play or online ? If you can still remember (probably just approximately), it would be great to post the bet/raise/call amounts. You say bet, but not how much you bet. You say raise, but not how much you raise etc.

comment Are seat re-assignments random in multi-table tournaments?
"it varies from from one casino to the next". What about WSOP, WSOPE, WPT, EPT etc. ? I googled it and couldn't find anything...

comment Best way to play poker online for playchips
I believe that, if you're in the US, you can't play on PokerStars with real money... the question is about virtual money... or am I missing something ?

comment Should I call opponent's flop re-raise with trips?
@Jeffrey The intentions of that bigger bet (more than $60) is to decrease the chance that the opponent will raise (because it's more than the pot), and increase the chance he will only call. Maybe you trigger some defensive protection in him or something... By doing this, you can see the turn cheaper and have a better picture about where you stand in that hand. If you don't agree, it's perfect. It's poker, not math.

+1. I agree with the all-in arguments :) .
