comment How much should you bet to bluff a huge nuts?
@wyatt - yeah, if he didn't actually show them, I'd say he was lying.

How did you find out your opponent had QQ?

comment How much should you bet to bluff a huge nuts?
You were not bluffing that you had 4 of a kind. At best, you were bluffing that you had one A, and were hoping to get someone with one Q to fold. If someone held QQ, they are hoping to bust someone with just an A, so it is not possible for them to fold. Either the hand didn't happen the way you described, or the person accidentally folded QQ by clicking the wrong button.

comment exact same card back to back to back
I would say the dealers need less training. All of the things that you mentioned are likely to happen eventually. But for all of those to happen including the same flop twice in a row (suits and ranks) all in a single hour, is pretty unlikely. Poor shuffling would not account for that. So if it does happen, maybe your dealer is a skilled mechanic and needs less training!

@LeeDanielCrocker. With those last two scenarios you described, that would certainly be cheating. I think in order for my scenario to not be cheating, the players need to play entirely normally, unless they are the only ones left in the hand. If they can accomplish that, your scenarios could not occur. One could argue that very few people can realistically play that way though, which means most people who would check it down with friends would probably end up colluding somewhat, whether intentional or not.

To potentially rebutt my argument to #1, just because people do it all the time doesn't mean it isn't cheating. However, I can't think of how you could possibly gain an advantage by doing it, therefore I don't see it as cheating. In order to cheat you must be gaining an advantage. Suppose 9 players at a table are doing this with each other, unless they are in a hand with the 10th player. Is this cheating? I'm hesistant to say this, but my gut makes me want to declare, still not cheating. I'm trying to imagine myself as the 10th person and how this would hurt me...

For #1, as long as the friends don't do it if someone else is in the hand, I wouldn't consider it cheating. I see spouses/partners do it all the time, and they're typically open about it. #2, I've done this myself. I only called instead of raising with the nuts, because I was trying to earn points with an attractive girl (though it didn't work out so in retrospect I should have raised). #3 isn't that unusual- missed draw vs nuts... #4 I agree, if the rule is in effect in a tournament, then this situation should not be given special treatment.

@Michael. By checking you get to see your opponent's cards, which may be valuable information to you.

comment How do you deal with devastating bad beats?
If you're at a casino, there are many things you can do to deal with a bad beat/cooler: swear loudly, yell at the dealer, throw your cards, bend your cards, rip up your cards, tell the other player how bad he is, and tell everyone about your bad beat/cooler. I've seen people do all of these many times (except rip up the cards- only saw that once). I can't really tell if it makes them feel better, but it might...

I think we have to assume that. Otherwise as soon as villain wins a hand, he would have to get up and leave the table, because the only way he can ever play another hand is if he calls all in with his now 10x buy in. (Since hero with more chips is all in every hand.)

cont... if they lose some hands to a 100bbs player they only lose 100bbs. The chances of any one player winning 3 in a row is just 1/100 (since anyone can win the first one to reset the count). Of course, hero's stack can grow well beyond 10000bbs every time he clears the table, and every else is reset, so the stars may need to align a bit in the beginning for hero to start worrying.
