comment How to use poker odds calculators?
Rules of thumb are useful but it doesn't pay to become predictable. There are often more profitable plays than shoving - like a flat call for example. Shoving might cause an opponent to fold whereas a flat call might encourage a bet from the villain on later streets.

comment How to use poker odds calculators?
When to fold/check/call is a massive topic which can't readily be covered here. If you're a beginner, start to get a handle on which hole cards to ditch. As you get better, you can play more marginal hands. Also, analysing past hands is invaluable. Most poker sites support the storing of hand histories locally either out of the box or as a standard option.

Apps like PokerCruncher will run tens of thousands of hands to see what the odds are. Q8s comes out at something like 20% 6-handed which is only marginally better than any 2 random hole cards.

comment Why some people all-in in the VERY first hand?
For one simple reason: Any two hole cards, however bad, can win.

comment calling all-in before the flop
Even if I'm on the wrong end of a nasty downswing, I still prefer money games for this reason.
