Here's a little joke that cracks me up:

So, a guy walks up to me and says, "I'm a tepee. I'm a wigwam. I'm a tepee! I'm a wigwam!" I said to him, "Relax, man. You're two tents!"

comment What Is The Rationale Behind A Check-Raise?
@Dominic: If the only reason you are check-raising someone is to punish them or teach them a lesson, you are check-raising for the wrong reasons.

If you are considering folding AA preflop in a cash game, why are you playing in the first place?

comment How often, and how much, should I bluff on the river when I miss my flush but a possible straight comes?
@TobyBooth: I've provided additional information and hopefully given the OP something new to think about by providing an answer to a relevant question that OP didn't ask. This is a common paradigm used by thousands of people across all SE sites.

comment What does 'freerolling' mean?
In addition to a freeroll, there is also a reverse freeroll, in which there is limited or no upside to a particular gamble. Consider a situation in which you have bottom straight on a 4 flush board. If you bet and get action, there is often little chance your hand will win the whole pot, and very often you will lose the whole pot.

In addition to what Jeffrey has said, consider that it is often better to bluff a busted straight when a flush comes than to bluff a busted flush when a straight comes. This is certianly not universal, but straights have a tendancy to be more well-hidden than flushes.
