comment What to do if we suspect online poker server is cheating
It's a shame you feel this way. "There is little you can do without proof" - I agree, yet you offer lots of examples with no proof of your assertions. "Action flops are so common..." - You have proof?. Also, you can program randomness. Stars published the results of it's RNG audit here by a company called Cigital who specialize in software security. They offer lots of white papers and publications on this subject.

comment How many chips do you have left?
@Chris Yes. If the players are taking turns as dealer then I'd say the responsibility is theirs to count chips, but in all seriousness, it's good etiquette, and there really is no advantage/disadvantage to letting players know. If there is, it's minuscule.

I'll edit the title. But to say we have a small sample and then assume it's clear he's fishy... I don't agree. :)

comment Adjustments to the rake?
@skeelsave When considering rake, as Tomas-Sima said, your skill advantage is probably the key consideration, as if you're breakeven EV-wise with your opponent(s) then rake makes that -EV. It's important to note that rake shouldn't be something you consider a significant aspect of EV, if at all. Primarily because rake is something you have no control over and is game specific, not player specific. Your EV however, is controllable and relative to your skill. Beat the game; beat the rake. In that order, never reversed. :)

comment Folding AA after the flop?
I don't see any fault with betting 3K on the flop, as pretty much any bet should mean that Hero is committed to an All-In, which I think is best. That said, inducing a raise from villain then becomes a good thing, so 3K or even less as a cbet is reasonable I think.

comment Simple final table tournament play including push/fold
As valid as I think this question is, asking for a "simple" answer here is probably asking for too much...probably. I can't answer this as well as I'd like to, but a copy of Chen & Ankenmans "Mathematics of Poker" book is about as good of a look at the subject as you'll find, if you haven't already got it.
