comment 200nl - Flop top two on wet board and get squeezed OOP deep
@SoboLan's answer is OK, but calling is the worst option I think. Villain is aggro vs two opponents on a very wet flop. You can be almost certain he's continuing aggression at the Turn, and if you call, you're just gifting him the opportunity to draw out. I'd add the possibility of a made straight in there as well. To me, it's a clear fold. You don't really get worse to call, and better to fold.

comment Why is comparing hands based on how often they win a showdown or on their poker “hand rank” worse than worthless?
It probably doesn't warrant a full answer from me, so just to add... @silversana is right about the hyperbole I feel. The concept at play here is Relative vs Absolute hand strength. Pre-flop showdown equities are fine, for pre-flop only. Go any further and you can see how unreliable they can be due to board texture.

comment Are there well documented cases of winning tournament by someone who wasn't looking at his own cards?
I'd be willing to bet against your last statement. Also, although it's intuitively not best to consider your hole cards as "not so important", as OP states, I believe what the villain thinks about Hero's cards is more significant than what Hero actually has, for value or bluff situations.

comment NL200: TPGK In Squeezed Pot OOP
At first glance it appears simple to me, but then I consider the opponents types of hands that cold-call pre-flop, and call again vs my raise! Given the card removal issues of villain having less nut-flush, pair, and SC potential hands (considering board texture), my thoughts are that I'm ahead more often than initial appearances suggest. By how much, if any, errr... not sure :)

Perhaps you're right, but how certain would you be after 80 hands, and such a small sample?

There really needs to be clear info about the flop texture before anyone can make a reasonable judgement on what is the best course of action.
