Your method is error-prone and difficult to maintain. Check my answer :).

comment What is a 'wet board'?
Yeah, it's kind of arbitrary semantics, but from a teaching perspective texture comes way before ranges (at least a deep understanding), so it might be overload to take what is essentially "How scary is this board?" and turn it into a multi-step mental exercise. I think advanced players talk about action logic more than board categorization anyway.

comment What is a 'wet board'?
I mean that I prefer to use the term wet solely to describe the texture property of a board irrespective of opponent ranges. Otherwise it's confusing to call a board like [9d 8d 7s] dry in, say, a 4-bet pot where Villain can only have {AA-QQ,AK}. In those cases I simply say, "The board is wet but misses Villain's range."

comment How does an opponent's all-in range change after showing an all-in bluff in an online heads-up tournament?
Ordinarily there is a Bayesian way to think about this, but with the psychological dynamic (Villain knows he showed a bluff) there isn't going to be a non-speculative answer to this question without further play to figure out your opponent. More relevantly, when you see a similar move, the range of hands Villain can credibly have (and thus represent) depend on the previous action and the board.

comment Profitability of re-buys/add-ons when allowed
Sorry, but this is not accurate in two ways. First, you can't talk about money per chip without considering the effects of survival odds. Secondly, for an arbitrary field size the money equity does not depend on the payout structure even for winner-take-all tournaments (but the variance does).

comment Is there a comprehensive source for poker terminology?
pokerterms.com is user contributed and includes a lot of informal terms, so it should be pretty comprehensive.
