comment What would happen in a professional tournament if a player was obviously taking performance enhancing drugs?
If its against the law, it's irrelevant to the field it's being used in. Drug use would inevitably lead to disqualification.

comment How Gus Hansen came up with 30%?
@jimbeam My edit is wrong? So 4.00-1 is equivalent to 50% according to your calculation method.

@JimBeam Hmm. You're right, it's confusing. I have no idea how I got these thousands of points. I'll start with yours. ;)

@jim-beam Are you not going to edit your answer to correct the method by which you calculate the equity required?

comment How Gus Hansen came up with 30%?
@jim-beam 2.36-1 is not 33.6%, and the method you use (moving the decimal point) is also incorrect. Adding 1 to the pot odds is fine and gives the "decimal" representation of the odds, 3.36. To get the percentage, divide 1 by the decimal. Ie. 1/3.36 = 0.298 (29.8%)

comment Kill game, how does it change your starting hand value?
Probably, just add a short link/explanation of what a kill game is.

Perhaps there is no need for those distinctions Jon, as the voting system would filter out poor answers anyway.

comment Split staight between players
Hi @user1693, Poker.SE is a good place to find out this stuff. Use the search box at the top the site first to see if your question has already been asked by someone else. In this case, using the search term "split pot" yielded at least two decent results, Does This Qualify As A Split Pot? & What is the“Top Five Cards” rule and how does it apply to splitting pots?. If you can't find the answers you need, please create your own question. I hope that helps :)
