comment What is the“Top Five Cards” rule and how does it apply to splitting pots?
They are right. Only the top five cards play. When one player has a straight or a flush, none of the other cards matter, only those that make up the straight or flush. It also applies in a situation like A7 vs A2 and the board is AAKJ4. This is a split pot. You both have AAAKJ.

comment In Wsop, paying taxes depend on what?
@mobiusdumpling i'm absolutely sure as of a few years ago, but I haven't played the WSOP recently so it's possible things have changed.

comment Potential all-in rules, does any game use this rule?
Ok I misunderstood that wrinkle, so optimal strategy would change yet again. As I said in my answer, nothing wrong with this, it's just like creating a new game. The same with variations like adding wild cards or playing with your cards exposed on your forehead.

@Clinton unless I'm not understanding something, that isn't accurate. When they call they are calling the all-in, not me. So they'd be live against the all-in player up to however much he had in his stack.

comment The groups of Sklansky starting hands
Clearly it's subjective, they are his rankings ;) What do you mean by 'computer generated starting hands'? Can you share your list?

@jacob - right, and if you are from one of those countries you can get this withholding returned to you as well, you just need documentation from your country etc.
