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.

comment What I did was right?
The action says you "called" on the flop, but were first to act? I think you mean bet, or check, bu I can't be sure. Please take a look at the terminology because it's important when retelling a hand history. Edit as appropriate. Otherwise it's an interesting question :)

comment Is This a Bet or a Raise?
If you can't add more details to this soon, I'm inclined to close it. I hope you can.

Not sure if this even makes sense?! Are we talking game mechanics, or strategy? Care to elaborate?

@Hon Could you provide the game type, and perhaps an example of what you mean in the form of a hand history? thanks

comment 1/2 NL: Call this villain's all-in with top pair, ace kicker?
With AK in Hero's hand and one King on the flop, there are only 6 combos of AK left, not 9 as you state. Does this affect your answer?

comment Does a poker party always end with one player winning all the chips?
The question very broad and vague. I can't see how it will inspire a serious answer that would benefit other players, other than differentiating between Cash games and Tournaments. For that reason, I'm closing it.

comment Do I need to change my tactics playing pocket rockets (AA) to maximize their potential?
I've reconsidered the reasons for closing this, & they still hold IMO. The info is just too generic, will incite debate when people try to fill in the gaps to come to a meaningful answer. It's just "non-constructive" like the close reason suggests. I get what you're attempting, but it's a long way from where it should be. This question is the kind of thing people try and avoid on poker sites! I'll approve the edit but for now, it's still closed.

comment Do I need to change my tactics playing pocket rockets (AA) to maximize their potential?
@TomAu It's still way too broad! Really, almost any question that has a "How do I play X?" format, without additional info about table dynamics is likely too difficult to answer objectively. I'm going to leave it closed. I have no problem with the attempt to edit it though, that's a good thing :)

comment Is it possible to make profit from Online games? How?
Simply put, yes. I'm closing this question as it is simply too broad to answer. There are many poker books to explore, many listed on this site. Do a little digging and get involved on a deeper level. Welcome to the site :)

@TTT ...you're also assuming that villain still calls shoves now he has a 10x buy-in stack! I think we've past the realms of reasonable assumptions ;)!

comment Systematic all-in
@TTT I don't think it matters because even as Hero's odd's of winning decrease, his earnings from each win still cover his losses (+EV). Hero's losses still only equate to 100bbs no matter how many opponents are in the hand. I think you can see that too :)

I think the "double bet" strategy you mention is the Martingale system. I could be wrong!

comment Strategy Against Aggressive, Maniacal Player
What I mean is that you may be called only by a stronger (although still worse) range when just shoving, which amounts to a huge overbet and slightly worse equity! Alternatively, re-raising (not shoving, yet!) may mean villain will re-re-raise with a broader range and thus you profit more by, perhaps, shoving over this bet. It's an overly simplistic example that I make, but my thoughts are that even adding a little nuance to Hero's play here, will reap greater rewards than the initial suggestion you made.

comment Strategy Against Aggressive, Maniacal Player
Although I believe this is OK, just making a standard raise with the range you suggest and generally playing for stacks regardless of the flop (If it gets that far, without being All-in Preflop) would be superior to just shoving.

comment Equity calculation at brick and mortar poker
Seriously, experience and practice. Time learning these situations away from the table, using the same tools as for online, will help your live game. I'll think about this more specifically later.

If the current table has errors, perhaps replace it with the one that doesn't?!
