comment Reasoning behind assumptions in Independent Chip Model
Thanks Paulpro, this was my first thought, having tested it for simple heads up, but I wasn't sure how it applied with multiple opponents.

comment Reasoning behind assumptions in Independent Chip Model
I understood your first paragraph, but I was imagining a sigmoid curve which could also fit. Thanks, the monte carlo idea is exactly the kind of thing I was looking for. It would be great if I could find this or perhaps I could try it myself.

comment Reasoning behind assumptions in Independent Chip Model
it may well be linear it might not be, but your post isn't enough to conclude money is lost and won in a linear fashion at the poker table. I'm looking for more rigor behind the assumption, such as the Monte Carlo simulations Dr Drfbagll suggests exist.

comment Reasoning behind assumptions in Independent Chip Model
But chips are usually won and lost in an exponential fashion rather than linear. E.g. If i'm small stack on 400, I'll probably double to 800 then to 1600. Rather than go from 400 to 600 to 800 etc.

comment What are the percentage for running into AA if you have KK?
Actually because you don't have an Ace, the odds someone else has AA goes up ever so slightly, but not enough to change the odds considerably.

comment Hands selection in a 6 table
Go here: wizardofodds.com/games/texas-hold-em, then click on 2-hand, 3-hand, 4-hand, 6-hand etc. to see the best starting hands for the corresponding game. This is useful in developing a range for each of these situations.

comment What kind of results are people getting with short stack strategies in no limit holdem?
My experience with this strategy is that opponents catch on to it too quickly. As soon as you sit down at a table with short stack, big stacks are immediately suspecting they are up against a short stack strategist and will be very quick to fold any time the short stack enters the pot. This significantly diminishes the effectiveness of the strategy and quite frankly I believe it is unprofitable on most tables.

answered All-in, pre-flop with AK… twice. Was that a bad decision?

Better wording, removed unnecessary sentence.
