@jeff you're right! My eyes saw it differently! A little rewording and my answer still holds, but thats for others to say.

comment Should I call opponent's flop re-raise with trips?
A $90 raise on flop by Hero would be a "pot" bet. Considering how much money villain has behind, and the usefulness of overbetting to $110 (~1.33 "pot" bet), I believe that it's not far over the top at all. It's reasonable if you think villain will continue.

You didn't explicitly say this, but I assume that you raised all in after the villains flop 3-bet?

comment Readless Preflop Strategy for Pokerstars HU Hyperturbo SNGs?
Is the 20-25bb stack what you start with? Also, is it 6max or Full Ring? How quick do the blinds increase and by how much each level? Thanks. I'd assume some use of Nash's equilibriums might come into this.

comment Micro Stakes, playing Big Aces pre-flop against multiple very loose opponents
@bmartins "If your raises are routinely called by 3+ players, then your raise is probably not large enough." This is all the information you need in this situation. If your opponents are willing to call with worse hands, how big of a mistake are they willing to make?! Bet/Raise more $$$.

Just a small note. Technically sound poker does not require any "praying"! ;)

comment Heads up NLHE, is it harder to beat rake then full ring?
I've no doubt your answers score would improve if you could add some depth of analysis to your statement.

comment Is there an optimum formula for deciding chip denominations?
I think you make an interesting point about the distribution of chips in play with respect to what is used most frequently.

comment Interesting Spot in Penny Poker: Overpair vs Nit on Wet Board
I actually agree that it's almost certain to be wrong to assume villain is competent, but if I don't make that point, I can't run an analysis. Decisions inferred from random data don't work so well ;)
