comment Are there times when your bets are more important than your cards at poker?
@azimut I edited my answer. Is it OK with you now? I used a part of your answer because it was a good example to support what I wanted to say.

comment Teach poker in a home game
I think that if one likes the basics, it's likely that he'll love the game for what it is. But if he doesn't like even the basics, he won't be interested in knowing the game any further.

comment 1/2 NL: Call this villain's all-in with top pair, ace kicker?
It's allright... he won a small amount of money for his online bankroll :) Judging by how he played this hand, he likely plays NL10 or NL25 online.

comment Short stack play - best way to deal with it?
I am glad I could help you. Definitely, you should change "syndrome" to "play". It's closer to the truth. And if you find my answer useful, I won't mind if you accept it :D

comment The groups of Sklansky starting hands
May I suggest that, instead of studying Sklansky's starting hands, one should understand the principles on how the open raising ranges are built? Just my 2c.

comment Systematic all-in
Poker is a zero-sum game so, in the long run, he might not reach the point where he burns his 10k BBs, because he-s mega-deep stacked.

As far as I know, short stack strategy does not have bluffs and semibluffs in its arsenal.

comment Is it advantageous to buy into a NL cash game at the maximum amount?
You cannot buy for minimum and have your opponents with even shorter stacks unless they lost and decided not to top off. But it's highly unlikely to have this scenario (a short stack and 8-9 ppl with lower stacks).

comment Short stack strategy
No. I said "high cards", not "high combinations". As I said in that answer, playing short stacked forces you to win now, which means that you'll mostly show down high pairs/cards. It's more likely to see KK vs QQ than KK vs 66 which hoped to flop a set and missed. If you have more money behind, you can call with 66, hoping to flop a set and stack your opponent. If this happens, you'll see KK vs 66, but with a 6 on the flop. Here, low cards beat high cards.

And you want to know why short stack strategy works? Simple: because high cards beat low cards.

comment Heads Up NL Holdem: Best strategy against all in every hand
@TTT You have a point: I didn't take into consideration the effective stack sizes and the blinds/antes of the tournament. If you have 5 BBs, then this entire theory goes out on the window and you call ATC, hoping you'll win. I took into account the fact that you have enough BBs left for you to be able to pull out some maneuvering. The 22+, AJ+ range is a variation of a principle against guys open-shoving every time, stated by Dan Harrington: "wait for a decent hand and then call". Again, we must correlate the range with how many BBs do we have. In the respect of BBs left, you're right.
