comment Mathematical Derivation of the Chen Formula
hmmmm, I appreciate your patience. You ask "How the Chen Formula is calculated?". In the potential duplicate question offered by @SoboLAN, the very first link gives the answer. Is that what you mean by "derivation"? If not, and I understand the term has a specific mathematical interpretation, then for the time being you may be asking the wrong group. That said, the formula is somewhat built from Chen's own empirical evidence, and some more precise research into NLHE mathematics. The question is potentially valid, I just get the feeling that users believe this Q has already been asked.

comment When to fold AA pre-flop?
@gonvaled So this isn't a question about equity then? If I have AA and I can afford to bet thousands of bb, or more, on this one hand then i'd do it in a heartbeat! 'Risk of Ruin' will factor into it, but that's relative to your individual preferences regarding going broke.

@hmmmm If you could clarify the specifics of the question you're asking and then use that as the title, that would help define the usefulness of this thread.

comment When to fold AA pre-flop?
@gonvaled If we're discussing limits regarding how much you're prepared to wager on a hand like this, then that's about bankroll/risk management and nothing to do with making correct decisions based on equity. Totally different question.

comment What happens if the card wasn't burned?
The cards are already randomized by the first shuffle so doing it again seems of little use. I suppose its reasonable either way.

@ChristopherLates Burning cards isn't used as a randomizing factor. It's to stop various methods of card finesse/cheating.

comment What happens if the card wasn't burned?
I've never seen nor heard of reshuffling the deck. Any casino i've ever been to doesn't do this. They just make others aware of the exposed card, still use it as a burn card, and then deal the normal sequence.

comment New school and old school
Hi @emanuele, I'm closing this question as it's too broad and doesn't have any definitive answer. "Old" and "New" school don't actually relate to any specific principles that differentiate them, significantly. Styles are arbitrary and as time passes, new styles dominate the current theory of poker.
