comment Most common freerolling situations in holdem?
@JeffreyBlake: that's exactly my thinking. And, since you can't confidently know if your opponent is drawing to such a hand, you can't know you're freerolling for a fact. As I speculated in the answer above, the term "free-rolling" could only be applied after the hands have been revealed, (somewhat similar to commenting on someone "drawing dead" - you can't know you're drawing dead until you see the opponent's cards... otherwise you wouldn't call would you? :)

@JeffreyBlake: What about if you have a nut straight, are drawing to a nut flush but your opponent has three-of-a-kind and is drawing to full house or quads? Regardless of still having favourable odds, I don't believe this situation qualifies to be called a freeroll. Am I wrong?

comment Profitability of re-buys/add-ons when allowed
I'll dig into ICM but I am still arbitrarily unconvinced (sorry :); I guess I was hoping for some math as to confirm that an initial buy-in has higher ROI than a re-buy

comment is there an open source algorithm for a fixed limit holdem
@JeffreyBlake: whoa, whoa, whoa! That link is not comment material but is imo answer-worthy! Today I learned about the "poker" tag on SO

Great assumptions! I'll leave the question open for a while longer though before accepting to see if anyone else is willing to contribute

Thanks for pointing this out. I mistakenly assumed that hand history would not be saved unless you sit through to the end of the hand (ctrl+click fold) - clearly that is not the case.

+1. I think I've read somewhere that FullTilt's patent on the game mode recently expired so other sites like PKR (meh) are introducing this too (more hands per hour = more rake :). I reckon it would be a close to perfect to pick up the game math without focusing on opponent behaviour patterns - but it could easily get costly for a novice player.

@TobyBooth: done. I'll have too keep reminding myself of this however - I find it hard keeping the Q&A form unless it's a specific hand analysis, and even than aqdvocates of different theories could get into a lengthy debate
