comment Why can't folded hands compete for sidepots?
Why does your question refer to side pots in particular? The reason folded hands cannot compete for side pots is the same reason that folded hands cannot compete for main pots.

comment Why is Texas Hold'em Poker so popular in worldwide not just US?
I think the Moneymaker effect had the largest impact but these are all pretty good points.

comment Publicly available poker stats
Plenty of individual players have hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of hands in their databases (I have somewhere around 400k and my volume was never that great). Problem is, they won't give it away without a huge price because of all of the valuable information it has.

comment Should I call all-in here with bottom set?
@SoboLAN You shouldn't make decisions based on being cautious - you should be playing low enough stakes to not be afraid of losing a few buy-ins due to running bad. Also, at the end of the day a decision is either +EV or not (or more +EV relative to other options) and that is all that matters. High variance situations can suck sometimes, but if the call is profitable, you should make the call.

comment Should I call all-in here with bottom set?
Lots of $1/$3 players will limp AK preflop because they (very much incorrectly) claim it to be a "drawing hand." The range you assigned villain has no hands that are better than ours so we definitely shouldn't be folding vs that range. In fact, if I take the best hands in that range, it would be a huge mistake to fold: Board: Qd 2d 9c { 2c2s } Hand 0: 64.798% { Ad9d, KdQd, JdTd } Hand 1: 35.202%

comment 200nl - Flop top two on wet board and get squeezed OOP deep
@SoboLAN Yes. The turn spot is pretty interesting too actually, maybe I'll edit the question later so we can talk about that too.

And just to add I feel like answering this question myself is a bit of a cop out.

@TobyBooth Don't be afraid to include your own answer then. To stir the pot, I'll say that I think raising is the worst option. And while it seems we have little to no information on the villain we have more info on him than we think.

comment 200nl - Flop top two on wet board and get squeezed OOP deep
By "first hand" I meant that it was my first hand at the table. The other players at the table have already been playing for a while and I just got dealt in. I'm not sure if this changes your answer at all but I wanted to be clear about that.
