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.

comment Postflop play books references
Usually a good book will pull together the concepts of both Pre and Post flop play in a coherent way, so take a look at the suggestions at Classic Books for Texas Hold'Em for a good starting point.

comment NL200: Am I A Super-Nit For Considering Folding The Turn With TPGK?
I'm surprised that someone would perceive betting the wet flop, and double barreling an Ace turn card as definitely a bluff/weak hand! I'm interested to hear more from you about that line of thought :)
