comment What is top N% of hands in PokerStove?
You sort of answered your own question (I think). N% refers to the top N% of hands according to their preflop all-in equity vs three random hands. My guess is they took every hand and put it against three random hands preflop in a large monte-carlo simulation, calculated the results for each hand, and ranked them.

comment How many chips do you have left?
To add to what Toby said, if the game is more friendly I think you should definitely just tell your opponent.

comment NL100: Turn Two-Pair at Wet Board Facing Small Bets
I think the title is a bit misleading because while he may have TAGish stats you only have a small sample and his stack size and play in this hand make it really clear he's a fish.

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.

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%

@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.

comment 200nl - Flop top two on wet board and get squeezed OOP deep
@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.

comment Did I play this correctly? $1-2 NL Holdem
Shove the turn, not river. This would be an abysmal river to shove.

comment Did I play this correctly? $1-2 NL Holdem
Frankly, I don't understand yours. If you really knew one had a King on the turn you should be shoving because $1/$2 players find it really difficult to fold trips, especially fish. It would be a slight overbet but not that much, around $142 or so into about $114. The king would have sucked out on this particular river, but you're ahead on a vast majority of rivers and want to get in more money sooner.

comment NL100: 2-Pair In 4-Way Pot Facing OOP Lead @ Wet Flop
I think a really small bet (like $10) is much more likely to induce a bluff-raise OTR than a size greater than half pot. Either way, I don't give most 100nl regs credit for that sort of move so I would fold and take a note. And honestly if someone does make that sort of move it is likely to be unbalanced which would allow us to exploit the villain in the future.

comment Could I have won more money with top set on the flop?
I'm not worried about that on this dry of a board. Given your stack size he shouldn't really play differently vs a minraise (i.e. a raise to $100) or a shove from you. Getting those other players to call is a great thing for you, because they'll often be hopelessly behind with a small amount of money behind. Finally, even in the worst-case scenario when you get it in bad OTT (which is mighty rare) you still have outs.

comment How do you play AQ or AK (off or suited) on $1/$2 Live?
You mean 32%? I think pre is on the big side but it depends on the make up of the rest of the table - if they're all willing to call $12 with worse Ax hands then it's quite fine to raise that much if not more. Flop sizing is fine. OTT she has $68 left and the pot is $64 so I think I like betting something small like $22 with the intention of calling a shove or shoving blank rivers.
