comment Mathematical Derivation of the Chen Formula
I'm going to except this as an answer because I think it is the closest I'm going to get (that is, I don't think anybody has the precise process that Chen used). But I in no sense mean that this is not a great answer (and was pretty much what I was looking for) Having had a few off topic answers/comments I didn't think anyone was going to have a proper answer. So Thanks this is great- definite +1!

I think choosing starting hands is all about equity, in fact poker is all about equity and attempting to maximise it. I just think that you are using a very narrow idea of equity there. But again all I was saying was that the answer you gave really isn't answering my question

comment AKo all in v 57o?
I have to disagree with analysis. I cannot speak for the player who is playing but with only 6BB you really should have a pretty wide shoving range especially with chips in the pot. Now if you say that his range is top 30% then this is a marginal call and really it could be wider than top 30%. I think the problem with your thinking is that whilst this is hand is way behind to pairs there are a lot less of them in the players range than there are hands like JQ or something.

@Inafziger well I figure that there is no point in covering the river bet because really you never be in that situation. What do you mean by "That one....."?

comment Why do people make the following call, check, call round the table?
I'm not sure that everyone calling the turn bet is weird at all. There is 6k in the pot and so the pot odds here are pretty good. Especially for the last 3 players calling. In fact the last player to call only need to be good 8% of the time to make this call. I'm not saying that's what these players are thinking as they don't seem to be great but still.

Do you remember the stack sizes of you and the other players involved because that is pretty important?

comment Have people been playing “40% strategies” in tournaments in the current century?
@RaduMurzea I like that AJ just beats 97, you know it's like 65 to 35 right? Also kill phil is a pretty famous book in a sort of series, Kill Phil, Kill Everyone and Kill Elky. Kill Phil is a kind of out of date introductory book of strategies for beginner players to be able to play effectively against what was then the typical seasoned tournament player i.e. phil helmuth

comment Do I call a turn all-in with KK with against a possible flush?
Am I reading this correctly that the blinds are at $1,$2 and the villian preflop raised to $25 a 12.5x raise?

@DonkeyFish Also just because you don't cash in one tournament doesn't make you a bad player! :)

comment Determining the proper play on the turn
@DonkeyFish i would disagree with saying that the cbet is called 80% of the time here, I think it is much much lower than that and if people are calling your cbet 80% of the time that is pretty exploitable but that might be a discussion for another thread.

comment Determining the proper play on the turn
@DonkeyFish I would have the opposite reasoning with AQ pre, it's not an absolutely amazing hand and I'm out of position so whilst you maybe don't want to be building a big pot you want to thin the field and get information to help you play the difficult hand. Also why don't you want to cbet on a J62 flop, in my opinion that is a bit of a dream flop to cbet on it's really missing most peoples ranges!

@DonkeyFish Sorry I misread that, yeah that popping it up to 2500 was what I would have done in this situation I suppose.
