comment NL600: River Decision IP vs TAG 3 Barrel
@TacticalCoder It's a good answer (+1), but you haven't considered a raise. It's interesting that most of the people I've spoken to don't even mention it!

comment Why is 7c2d a semi-bluff?
Any way of parsing the information into a hand history style format and editing the question? It's difficult for anyone to be confident in the answers they give if the question is lacking details.

comment Why is 7c2d a semi-bluff?
Surely there is more information about the hand in this situation? Board cards? Opponent dynamics? Position? For something to be a semi-bluff it generally means there is still some possibility of making the best hand, which is why I ask what the situation is in more detail. Thanks.

@TimLehner It would be good if you could give more detailed reasoning to back up your observations. Thanks.

comment Is online poker legal or not in the United States ?
I assume you ask this question with specific regard to the USA? If so, could you update the title. If your question is more general in geographic terms, could you please state that. Thanks.

comment Inactive player problem: Where should the money be distributed in this situation?
This is such a rare thing that I can't see much use for it as a question! What is there to learn from this? ...As a general rule (online/live), the missing players last action stands, but if that same player can't act on his next turn his hand is "dead".

comment Basic Strategy for Pokerstars ZOOM?
Is there a way to make this question less of a discussion and perhaps more strategy based regarding "Zoom" pokers unique set-up? In it's current form it's a bit too open-ended and vague. FAQ

comment Online vs Live problem
How many bb's do are you buying in for? What are the stack depths of your opponents? What do you consider a basic strategy (fundamentals) when adjusting to very loose opponents?

comment NL400: Live Hand vs Semi-Loose Passive Player At Dry Board. What Would You Do?
The (my) method is nuanced, but I've no doubt you know that. What I can say is that I memorized the hand combinations that make up the top 50% of all hands for a few categorization methods (Pokerstove, Sklansky-Chubukov, PokerProTools) so by seeing one hand I get a baseline of what a potential range looks like. The more hands I see, the more accurate I get. Is that any help? :)

comment NL400: Live Hand vs Semi-Loose Passive Player At Dry Board. What Would You Do?
Like you say I'm estimating, and I only take mental notes. I do my best to stay alert, be accurate and watch everything. For VPIP I count hands played per orbit along with SD hands which I extrapolate ranges from. PFR is just a subset of this, looking for frequency of calls to raises to guess ranges. AF is a post-flop stat (a ratio), where I count for raises vs calls for each street. It's can be alot at first but it gets easier. Knowing the formulas, along with a lot of experience makes my estimates better. Though, table dynamics will affect this heavily.

+1. Nice answer JB. I figured you'd be someone who'd be able to answer this. :)

A good resource for current proceedings regarding the state of US law regarding poker is The Poker Players Alliance or theppa.org.

comment NL200: Deep Stacked IP; 4Bet pot
If you mean his range percentage as an absolute figure (?) (i.e. commonly regarded top 15% best hands of 1326 Pre-flop combos), then he'd have to assume I'm 3 betting ~40% to estimate his PF equity >50%. This is very unlikely! If you're right the analysis is fair but personally, I think you've given him a vastly inflated PF range and this makes your assumption of his flop connection ratio inaccurate, similar to your other assumptions about our flop equity, and potential scare cards.

comment Spread Limit vs Pot Limit
What kind of advantages/disadvantages do you mean? Strategic? Organizational? Also, can you provide more details or a link on what a spread limit game is.

comment NL200: Deep Stacked IP; 4Bet pot
Other than maybe the current BB and UTG tangling a couple of times, it's not tense, if you know what I mean. No deep leveling going on, no maniacs, or people getting run over. Certainly not between me and the flop opponent (SB) anyway.

@JohnDibling If you can quantify your comment, and put it into a full answer it could be useful.

comment NL400: Vs a TAG Regular. Interesting River Decision
I bet the turn for value because I believe I still have enough equity to make it +EV. As for the river, it does change a few things which I noted in my answer. I actually think c/f is best now that his range is more defined than at the turn.
