comment What are the odds of being dealt exactly the same 2 hole cards in consecutive hands?
For "twice the same hand", the first hand doesn't matter as long as the second hand is the same. So the answer is 1/1326 (and not (1/1326)^2).

comment Is This a Bet or a Raise?
I guess the question is: If UTG1 bets more than a BB, is this called bet or raise?

comment Are there times when your bets are more important than your cards at poker?
I still think that the best place to comment other answers is to put it there as a comment. But well...

comment Are there times when your bets are more important than your cards at poker?
Most of this seems to be a comment to the answer I gave a few hours ago. In my opinion, you should split that into twow parts: The comment to my answer should go ... well ... as a comment to my answer. Your own answer should be self-contained and stay here.

Your link for the solomon rule currently points to google. This is probably not what you intended...

comment Name for limpers that call a pre-flop raise?
@ArtemIce: Calling the big blind preflop is called limping. However, the question for limpers, who also call a later preflop raise.

comment Should you use average value or marginal value when deciding which hands to play?
It would be interesting to have the exact source of this example. Would you mind adding the book and the page number to your question? Thanks!

I don't see how this answers the question.

comment Short stack strategy
@Bogdan: Bluffs are still possible. If you didn't hit on the flop and you are heads-up, you should try to bluff your opponent out of the pot every now and then.

Bogdan: Thanks. This is exactly the kind of argument I'm missing in the pokerstrategy article.

Isn't this true for any strategy?

comment Short stack strategy
Thanks for the pointer. It's a good starter, probably, but I've to say that I don't like the pokerstrategy articles too much. I guess they are aimed at a large (willing to pay) audience, so they have to dumb down everything and repeat the same basic things again and again. I'd prefer some source not only telling me the "how", but also the "why".

comment Is it advantageous to buy into a NL cash game at the maximum amount?
I read: "because the pot grows geometrically". What do you mean by "geometrically"? Exponential?

comment Outs counting correction
In your example with the outs dropping from 9 to 6: When counting with the result 9, you say you need 1 of 9 cards out of 47. In your method where you get the result 6, you need 1 of 6 cards out of 35 (52 - 12 pocket cards - 3 community cards - 2 burn cards). So together with the number of outs, you have also reduced the size of the card pool where the cards are drawn, resulting in a similar probability. The only reason to do such a detailed computation is when you think there is a non-average probability of some of your outs being in some pocket cards (see the answer of Cory Kendall).
