comment How do you play AQ or AK (off or suited) on $1/$2 Live?
What would you do if she pushes allin when you bet 30-40$ on turn?

If you bet small, would it not allow for the possibility of the villan improving his/her hand by calling low bet for a 2-pair or lowest set.

comment How to play QQ live tournament?
I think many tournament villans would have played the same with AQ also and it is called cooler. Can you fold QQ preflop? Set over Set is the worst nightmare in tournament flops.

comment How Can I Tell If My Opponent Is Aware Of My Image/Range?
Is it Live or Online? I think your question is wrto Online play which is totally different than Live. In Live stakes it depends on the stakes and some people (maniacs) just don't care of the image and they are just there to gamble and get lucky. If they are TAG, then you have to watch for other tells to know whether they are bluffing (chasing) or strong (boat/set). If my image is very Tight in Live then other TAGs would never(95%) 3bet me unless they are very strong. The advantage in Live play is there is always a situation where you can take care of anyone if you are afraid of risking.

Yeah, I agree that we don't have enough information about her but I want to know how you would bet-size if you are betting (or differently on pre and post flop). Now after she called the flop she has committed 35% of her stack.

comment $1/$2 Live - Bottom set on flop and facing 3bet
At 1/2, chances for drawing out occurs all the time. It is because if I bet more, they fold and I scoop a low pot or I if bet low, they will call and I get trapped. So it is always how much you can afford to gamble. I checked because I knew he was going to bet regardless. His 3bet there was a huge bet and I should have folded or just called to check/call on turn until the board pairs but I was in the mood to gamble because it is my 1st buy in and ~450 is allright for me to gamble 23% at river for board to pair. If I had more than 550, I would have thought otherwise.

Yes, I shoved basically because of the scenario on turn - what if he shoves. I wanted to play till the river and I risked. It is one of those hands (under 500) and you still have 23% on river to pair the board, better odds than shooting craps. If both our stacks were over 550, then it would have been a tough decision between call/fold considering a shove possibility on turn.

comment $1/$2 Live - Bottom set on flop and facing 3bet
Months earlier, I have had a suckout loss when I had a straight on the flop and turn gave a 4 card straight on the board but still my (another) opponent called his top Kings set to my all in and the river paired the board. I actually thought about this hand before I went allin above.

comment $1/$2 Live - Bottom set on flop and facing 3bet
I agree with you. I went AllIn. He snap-called me. Knew I was behind but had outs! He had the straight! The turn was Kx and river was Kx!! My first suckout win for a 900+ pot. Having played with the villain for the past 3 hours, he won 4 pots against me with aggressive betting but I wanted to take chances here and it worked, though it was a wrong decision. I did not put him on a set. Put him on a straight or a QT and felt like he was drawing to a straight .

comment Is there an optimum formula for deciding chip denominations?
Casinos have 1,5,25,100 - more than enough for 1/2 game and if you want you can add in 500 chips. Keep it simple.

comment How to maximize expectation with pocket aces and an Aces Cracked bonus running
The nuts is 2 6 and so if you check on the turn and re-raise on the river would make more sense and if they re-raise you then you can call but I don't think 12 bucks is too much to lose when you just called irrespective of your previous plays.
