comment What are the odds of flopping a straight flush with 62s?
Brent, regarding your edit, you can not "flop" any of those other hands, because there are only three cards on the flop and you need four community cards to make a straight flush that way. Are you wanting to know you odds of making a straight flush by the river with those hole cards?

comment $2/$5 Poker Hand: Nut Flush Draw, Big Pot
The odds change a lot since the raiser only has another $100 behind after his raise....

comment Finding leaks in your game
@RobbieDee That is great.... As long as you are playing the hand correctly. Finding leaks involves finding those hands that are losing money because you are playing them incorrectly. Just because Pokercruncher says that a hand should be +EV doesn't mean that it will be for everyone!

comment Bank Roll Management @ Multiple Tables
There are some issues that can arise because of multi-tabling however. For instance, what if you are playing 10 tables and your internet drops and you lose all 10 buyins. There IS more risk involved when playing multiple tables, along with the fact that you have less attention to pay to each table.

@amigal: True, I forgot 6-2, although the math works the same way. Thanks, I have updated the answer.

@RaduMurzea: Ummm, there are no burn cards preflop, before you get your hole cards in Texas Holdem. Even if there were, the burn cards have the same likelihood of being one of the required cards as any of the hands do, so we can just consider all "unknown" cards as having the same likelihood.

comment Rank of two-pair hands for low in razz or 7-stud hi-low
@amigal: Well, I think that better and worse are even more ambiguous than high/low. A hand is always higher or lower, but that can be better or worse, depending on the game that you are playing. It's just that a high hand isn't a good thing in low games. :)

comment Does the buy-in for a tourney affect the taxes of your winning?
@RayofCommand: While that question deals with tax that are withheld from the payout, it isn't a duplicate of this question.

comment How to deal with overcards in the flop
If you do this consistently, you will have to watch for the people who will call with anything in order to take it away from you on later streets. As with anything in poker, don't do the same thing every time! :-)

comment Why offer guaranteed prize pools?
Well, the reason that you want to play in a guarantee even when there are more people than required in order to make the guarantee is that you are able to play in a tournament with enough entries to have a prize pool worth playing. Yes, if they didn't make the guarantee it is even better, but if they didn't offer it, instead of being guaranteed a, say, 10K prize pool, you may only be playing against enough people to make a $3K prize pool without it being worth your time to play at all.

I changed it slightly so that the math is more obvious.

comment What are the odds of being dealt exactly the same 2 hole cards in consecutive hands?
@user814064: Correct, but this is to be dealt a particular hand twice in a row. I'll clarify.

@emanuele: I calculated pot odds and not ICM because he did not include information such as number of players and stack sizes. You are making assumptions and can not possibly calculate equity with the information that was provided.

Well, he does say that he is using a hand recorder and a HUD. As well as being tagged with pokertracker and holdemmanager. I'm not sure why you think he's referring to the poker room stats. :-)

comment Finding leaks in your game
When describing the number of flops seen by position, you should certainly be seeing more flops from late position than from early position. UTG should be seeing the fewest, with an almost linear increase through the button where you see the most. Position is power. Also, you can always improve your game, so I disagree with the philosophy that "if you are winning, don't worry about it". Wouldn't you like to win more?

Don't forget about spread-limit games. There are also games with/without blinds, lead-in bets, antes, etc....

comment Why can't folded hands compete for sidepots?
If I had to guess, I would say that one of the reasons that this rule came about was to simplify awarding the pots. This way you don't have to keep track of who folded when in order to determine who wins which side pot. This would be an especially big problem with multiple side pots and people folding at different times.

comment AKo all in v 57o?
@hmmmm: Yes, but even JQ is an under-dog in this situation and the pot-odds don't quite make up for it. That was the point of this answer, that even in the "best case" you don't have the correct odds, and in the "worst case" (pairs) you are crushed.
