comment NL600: Should I Make This River Bluff vs Reg?
Why would you think that 3-betting Pre-Flop is "definitely" better than flatting? Also, as for reads on villain, that's not necessarily true. His quality is part due to his balance of bluffs to value hands. He's good because he's difficult to read. The number of hands is somewhat arbitrary as he may exploit others obviously, but that doesn't necessarily apply to how he reacts to me.

"He's not worried about kicker problems with Ax anymore." Why not?

Specifically, what proportion of my hands do you think have a queen in them (compared with my whole range), that I would check-raise with? When would I do this and why? Thanks.

Yes, other than actually counting the hands you could do that. Also, consider determining your profitability in a game by Money Won Per Hour (or $Won/Hr). I find this a useful measure alongside bb win-rate to gauge my success.

Not to put you off but we're talking 100,000's to truly feel comfortable with the StDev volatility measure. It's not impossible to gain insight into your game using this stat, but it's genuinely difficult as the games change periodically. Thus one sample of hands and the corresponding StDev represent more of a snapshot in time, rather than a linear progression of an attribute of skill.

@Dan Firstly, I do appreciate your answer. Secondly, how do you know I don't upvote answers? You have definitive proof!? Otherwise it's terrible for your credibility. If you're going to make statements like that I really hope you can back them up! Thirdly, Check this link on Poker Meta out for an idea of why I haven't accepted answers YET. Thanks.

comment NL600: River Decision OOP vs Thinking Regular At Very Wet Board
@karl Mostly, because I don't expect to get called by worse and my hand has postflop potential. 3 betting would ruin both those advantages.

comment Is it impolite to leave a cash game when I'm about to be the big blind?
@chriskluis I'm not sure you've understood the question. Everyone here seems to accept that blinds are required for the game to work.
