comment Fictitious play for multiway hand in push or fold regime
This doesn't seem like an attempt to answer the question. Maybe more of a comment.

comment When is Automatic Re-buy Triggered?
Hi Felipe, I just wanted to mention something about this type of question. A question like this is probably better suited to asking in the "Chat" function. I've no doubt you'd get a quick response about this sort of thing.

comment Hand discussion: QJc vs A8o on A84 T K
Yes, those HH's. Take a look at some of the questions on my profile. I've posted many Q's of what I believe is an appropriate format for this. Also, thanks for the editing you've been doing, it's appreciated :)

It would be great if you could post the native hand history within this question as well. There are many examples to copy from this site relating to format, thanks.

comment Are sidepots created at each turn, or at the end of the round?
You'll find the relevant information in the noted question. In short though, I believe it's created at the end of a players turn, assuming of course that a side pot is evn possible at that point.

comment Do I have to show my hand in an “All-In” situation?
I've sent a request for the profiles to be merged. Also, perhaps editing the original question with this additional text to clarify the scenario would be good.

comment Is it possible to play for real money online in the US?
Some of the English here is a little incoherent and the link is opaque. Can you clean it up, and make the link address transparent? otherwise I'll remove the bits that aren't clear, thanks.

comment What to do if we suspect online poker server is cheating
So your actual answer is to to report those players who you think are cheating.

comment What to do if we suspect online poker server is cheating
Commenting that you saw a few suspicious things & having no data or references to back up your accusations makes for a very weak argument. Also, it seems you neglected to answer the question. Perhaps, can you suggest a course of action to take to verify your claims?

comment What Is The Rationale Behind A Check-Raise?
I thought I had reopened it! Must've missed that bit :) I took a little out from your editing as it would've changed the tone of Rob's original too far.

comment What Is The Rationale Behind A Check-Raise?
[nb. Wasn't my downvote.] One issue with this question is that it could be answered in numerous, conflicting ways. Eg. "It's good/bad in this/that situations vs these/those players" etc. It's difficult to answer in this form I feel. Perhaps being more specific regarding game type (Fast vs. Normal poker),stack sizing issues... It depends on what you want to gain from the type of answer you get I suppose, but in this state it's seems overly broad. I'm inclined to close it, sorry Robbie :( Can you improve it at all?

comment Simplest Way to Explain EV to Beginners
Decent answer! I think the analogy about the whether "The Casino is Gambling?" is very useful.

Clearly this needs more info to be answerable. Radu pretty much summed it up though.

comment The need of calculating EV?
I find your calculation unintuitive but that's almost certainly due to my personal methodology. Check this Q out: poker.stackexchange.com/q/78/88

Agreed, Pokertracker is what I use and it's impact on game analysis cannot be understated. You'll be glad you got it.

comment What are best books, programes and sites to improve Texas Hold'em (Limit and No Limit) skills?
Again, as gaz said, this is just way too broad. It could potentially be split into 3+ separate questions. You just won't get a useful answer asking a question like this here.

comment How does the strategy for Omaha and Hold Em vary pre-flop?
Knowing this is useful, for sure, but this question is too broad. I believe actual books have been written about this!

comment The state of the art of the pokerbots of poker academy
I'm in two minds about closing this. The answer is thin on context and objectivity about attempting to give examples and data relating to the original question. That said, most answers will in some way relate to commercial versions of bots. Perhaps, Peter, you could add a little depth to your answer regarding "the state of the art" as you currently see it, without necessarily referencing the commercial side of things too much. Otherwise, I may be inclined to delete the answer. It's good to have someone who's worked directly with bots here though, Thanks.
