comment What is the min-raise and min-reraise in Holdem No Limit?
"You've to min-raise always at least the size of bigblind." Is not right. What you are describing under "Re-raise" is the "min-raise" rule. Rule wise there is no such thing as "re-raise". A raise is a raise no matter if you are the first player to raise, or the second, or any time after that.

Be careful with the phrase "calling the $2 blind and then raising $2". It may allow beginners to think, it's ok to say "I call you and raise $x." which is not allowed and is just considered calling. Generally: You can either say "I call" or "I raise", but not "I call and raise".

comment In live play, why do poker players wait their turn before looking at their cards?
I'm sorry, but I don't see how that quoted rule would force/encourage the players to look at their cards in turn. The halting of play is for the case when a player fails to show the cards to the hole camera at all. It's completely irrelevant when he does it.

comment How many chips do you have left?
Also it is custom (and in most tournaments a rule) that you have to stack your chips in a way, that the highest value chips are visible and not hidden underneath or behind other chips.

comment Main differences between Limit and No Limit Hold'em
Actually in my experience, some unexperienced limit players don't fold enough. They keep calling although they are, for example, just "drawing" to an over pair.

comment Texas Hold'em Rules
This isn't quite correct. The 2 of spades makes a straight flush in this example and will be better than any other spade (except the 7, because it would be the better straight flush).
