If there are points you want to explore consider adding an answer yourself.

comment MTT — math point of view
Are you trying to estimate the likely finishing place in a tournament, if the player in focus does not act any more, taking into account ante structure & chip-stack? I ask because a suitable question in the title would likely draw more exposure to what could be a useful thread.

comment What would happen in a professional tournament if a player was obviously taking performance enhancing drugs?
If its against the law, it's irrelevant to the field it's being used in. Drug use should inevitably lead to disqualification.

comment How Gus Hansen came up with 30%?
@jimbeam My edit is wrong? So 4.00-1 is equivalent to 50% according to your calculation method.

@JimBeam Hmm. You're right, it's confusing. I have no idea how I got these thousands of points. I'll start with yours. ;)

@jim-beam Are you not going to edit your answer to correct the method by which you calculate the equity required?

comment How Gus Hansen came up with 30%?
@jim-beam 2.36-1 is not 33.6%, and the method you use (moving the decimal point) is also incorrect. Adding 1 to the pot odds is fine and gives the "decimal" representation of the odds, 3.36. To get the percentage, divide 1 by the decimal. Ie. 1/3.36 = 0.298 (29.8%)

comment Kill game, how does it change your starting hand value?
Probably, just add a short link/explanation of what a kill game is.

Perhaps there is no need for those distinctions Jon, as the voting system would filter out poor answers anyway.

comment Split staight between players
Hi @user1693, Poker.SE is a good place to find out this stuff. Use the search box at the top the site first to see if your question has already been asked by someone else. In this case, using the search term "split pot" yielded at least two decent results, Does This Qualify As A Split Pot? & What is the“Top Five Cards” rule and how does it apply to splitting pots?. If you can't find the answers you need, please create your own question. I hope that helps :)

comment Texas Holdem Scenario… Is this possible?
The flop doesn't give hero the nuts, which is a requirement.

The answer here is a little different topically to your question, but at the end of it I provide links to how a site audits it's play. It might be useful.

comment What is the nature of Omaha starting hands?
I'm not going to delete any comments here guys, but please, keep it friendly, or sadly I might have to ;). Remember, we're ALL here to learn. Breaking down strategy via an Omaha "model" as Jon puts it has similarities to this question about Holde'Em, I think, What is a wet board?. That said, using examples of hands is incredibly useful to elucidate a point, don't dismiss it's benefits, even in this case.

comment How does the strategy for Omaha and Hold Em vary pre-flop?
@Jon I've looked at your rewording, and considering there's been a response to this Q already, I think your suggested edit is good enough as a question on its own. I'll leave this Q as is for now, but if you like, post the edit as a new thread.

comment Do you have any “in-hand” thinking procedures?
There's a lot to like about this answer. Reminds me of a chess story where the tutor was angry that her student was taking decisions too quickly even if they were right. Also, it alludes to a thought process away from the table which I've no doubt every winning player will tell you is just as important as thinking habits whilst in a hand.
