comment NL100: Deep Stack Shoves On River. Do You Call?
First, equity is probably the wrong term as it's the river. I'm either winning or losing, no in between. Thus it comes down to number of winning combos vs losing combos. Also, how are you getting that number?! 41.64%? Edit the answer if the calc is too long for a comment :)

comment NL100: Deep Stack Shoves On River. Do You Call?
So you believe villain is sometimes shoving 2.5 buyins with as little as Third Pair-No kicker?! Or even 22?! I'm forced to call 204.80bb to win 370.80bb (1.81:1) thus I need a 36% chance of winning to breakeven. If he shoves 2 pair even slightly less, it's much closer to -EV. I really don't think it's simple, at all. [edited incorrect percentage, 2013.08.24]

comment NL100: Can I Call This River Shove?
You can't possibly know that 3-barreling here is bad in my case. "Lucky" for me that I don't take this line every hand then! Yes, i'm sure learning to c/c & c/r will change my win rate(!), but speculating about adjustments to a broader strategy does little to address what to do in this particular hand history.

I understand what you say and it's reasonable. However, I never said I'd seen him make these moves. I can't see how you got that from the OP! It's more a gameflow read (not hard data like seeing a previous showdown), and was definitely the first time I'd been confronted with it. Does that affect your analysis?

Timid as in fearful & hesitant. It's my read that he's likely to fold too much when facing considerable aggression. Given that I believe he's uncomfortable in these situations, I also believe he's likely of making an error regarding the strength of the hands he can play against me.

It occurred to me that check-call would be a better line here usually too!

comment What are the odds of being dealt exactly the same 2 hole cards in consecutive hands?
To get the hand once, yes. Twice in a row it's (1/1326) * (1/1326)

comment What are the odds of being dealt exactly the same 2 hole cards in consecutive hands?
Likelihood of one hand, multiplied by itself, (n) times, Where n=consecutive. I believe. Too short to be an answer really. One hand is 1 in 1326 for NLHE

comment Names of positions?
It's a valid question but has already had numerous answers dedicated to it. Check the link I referenced. Also, before asking a question, use the search function (Top of page, I suggest "Position" or something similar for this one). You'll usually find what you're looking for :)

comment Pocket Aces in 9-handed
No need to apologize :) Simply put, your emotions are ruling your thoughts and play little part in a strong players game. Having the best hand, and getting all your chips in is best... always. The real consideration here is bankroll management. Keep that in mind, but first, work on the fundamentals, i.e. Odds, Hand Reading, Positional Strategy

comment Pocket Aces in 9-handed
To be clear, in NLHE, you should ALWAYS get all of your chips in pre-flop if it's possible. I'd agree with your suggestion that the OP switches to playing even at the lowest stakes possible, than spending time on play money tables.

comment The more advice I read - the worse I play. What am I doing wrong?
The suggestion of making "First Principles" a priority is a useful one. As for your point on the independence of hands, I'd say that the process of decision making should be unchanged, hand-to-hand, but the inputs (i.e. available information) are dynamic. I actually think this is what you may have meant in the first place.

comment Online Poker League
Does the WSOP even offer this kind of functionality for online players? I notice a lot of your answers are similar to this, just linking the WSOP. If you can't be more specific in regards to the question, then it's not really appropriate here. Please consider clarifying your answers. Thanks.
