comment What are the odds of getting the same four-of-a-kind twice in a row?
You are right to say that this particular question about quads has a precise answer. I was really alluding to the conceptual broadness of the question. You could equally ask the same thing and substitute "four-of-a-kind" with any other combination of hand types, like two-pair, sets, etc. The conceptual scope of an odds question like this covers so much, and yet your specific question covers so little to be of any use to many others. That is unless it helps to plan on hitting back-to-back quads regularly (and I do!).

comment NL600: River Decision OOP vs Thinking Regular At Very Wet Board
What you deem a quality post is not necessarily the same as me. And yes, I'm more judicious with my approval than most. I may seem harsh, but I'm fair. Also, like you say, it's early in the beta. Most of my own questions have one, maybe two responses, even though 200+ committals are supposedly active on this site. I'm allowing time to gather more perspectives before I decide to "accept". I wonder if that's even possible for a hand history?! That said I'm always open to advice and I'll review all my activities and perhaps be more of a 'beta liberal' with the praise!

comment What is the purpose of a continuation bet, and when is it best applied in Hold'em?
Dead?! It's been open two weeks; it'll be fine. I can understand your concerns, it crossed my mind too. Then I remembered this, The Chat-Room/Forum problem. Rather than allow poor quality, I'd say we all should dig deep to come up with some really challenging questions, not permit a slip in standards.

Also, I just updated the wiki info for the continuation-bet tag. That should clarify what they are more clearly at least.

comment What is the purpose of a continuation bet, and when is it best applied in Hold'em?
This question is massively broad! It fits a lot of "non constructive" elements outlined in the FAQ. A good question on c-betting might be useful though. Is there a way you could improve it?

comment NL200: Many possible lines to showdown in this 3-bet pot
I'd say his perception of me is similar to mine of him. Perhaps i'm seen as TAGgy as i've not had as many playable hands as I'd expect. We have no direct history between us at the moment that would alter my common beliefs of his player type.

comment Are There Good Points-Based Ways To Handicap Home Poker Tournaments?
Is there a "buy-in" for these tournaments or is each tournament seen as equal to all the others?

comment Call river all-in after missing flush-draw but hitting AK?
I agree his range is indistinct, being an unknown opponent. That said, to make the assumption he's a low skilled, low limit player (I assume you meant NL25 or $0.10-$0.25?!) is impossible to substantiate. From my experience taking the thought process and line I suggested is still what I'd consider best given the little information we have.

comment Call river all-in after missing flush-draw but hitting AK?
If he's not paying attention to the pot size at all streets, then it's almost certain he's not a particularly skillful player :)

comment Call river all-in after missing flush-draw but hitting AK?
"Represent the strength that you have..." isn't something i'd advocate to anyone in almost any situation. Why bet larger when you'll only isolate yourself vs better hands, when a smaller bet keeps the initiative, reps a broader value range, and collects dead money from villains PP's that he'll fold. As for calling a "big bet", the stacks aren't really right for that to hold true. If they were deeper then maybe.

comment NL400: Vs a TAG Regular. Interesting River Decision
Ahh, an oversight on my part then. Thanks for the tip about the history. I didn't know that. Any suggestions about the hand? :)

comment NL400: Vs a TAG Regular. Interesting River Decision
@Michael Did you edit the "NL400" tag? If so, putting the NL before the stake is the most common, and accepted notation. That's the only change I can see. I'd say that it's best to keep to the most recognized vernacular.

comment Area under graph in PPT simulations
@shuttle87 I've used their calc for street-by-street analysis many times and it's useful. As for the graph, I couldn't see any documentation relating to the "area" under that graph. I don't believe it matters as the equity analysis is self evident and the info you need is apparent already. Contacting them is probably better than asking this question here.

@Tom Squires Do you have any references for that claim? Perhaps a bit less vague and it could be useful.

comment What are Pot Odds, and how do I determine them?
@one.beat.consumer It's hierarchical. You just said it yourself. You noted that implicit odds are "estimates of your pot odds", thus implicit odds ARE pot odds, just a deeper category. I'm not being nasty, :) Just clarifying everything as this is Beta.

All the more reason to be cautious.

comment Preflop range for representing the nuts on every board?
@user988052 I agree with you. His question states "What is the minimum preflop range...". If that is what the OP means then he would need a 100% range, or precognition about what the board will be, prior to it coming, before he can narrow his choice of starting hands.

@JeffreyBlake Just edited. I noticed the mistakes I made, good catch. Thanks :). I'm paranoid now, this is right?

What use is this in improving your game? The nuts is relative anyway, it's not necessary to have the absolute best hand possible to actually have the best hand vs your opponents possible range.
