comment Mathematical Derivation of the Chen Formula
@hmmmm If you could clarify the specifics of the question you're asking and then use that as the title, that would help define the usefulness of this thread.

comment When to fold AA pre-flop?
@gonvaled If we're discussing limits regarding how much you're prepared to wager on a hand like this, then that's about bankroll/risk management and nothing to do with making correct decisions based on equity. Totally different question.

comment What happens if the card wasn't burned?
The cards are already randomized by the first shuffle so doing it again seems of little use. I suppose its reasonable either way.

comment What happens if the card wasn't burned?
@ChristopherLates Burning cards isn't used as a randomizing factor. It's to stop various methods of card finesse/cheating.

comment What happens if the card wasn't burned?
I've never seen nor heard of reshuffling the deck. Any casino i've ever been to doesn't do this. They just make others aware of the exposed card, still use it as a burn card, and then deal the normal sequence.

comment New school and old school
Hi @emanuele, I'm closing this question as it's too broad and doesn't have any definitive answer. "Old" and "New" school don't actually relate to any specific principles that differentiate them, significantly. Styles are arbitrary and as time passes, new styles dominate the current theory of poker.

comment Postflop play books references
Usually a good book will pull together the concepts of both Pre and Post flop play in a coherent way, so take a look at the suggestions at Classic Books for Texas Hold'Em for a good starting point.

comment NL200: Am I A Super-Nit For Considering Folding The Turn With TPGK?
I'm surprised that someone would perceive betting the wet flop, and double barreling an Ace turn card as definitely a bluff/weak hand! I'm interested to hear more from you about that line of thought :)

comment Does This Qualify As A Split Pot?
Community cards can be used by all players, thus your connection doesn't matter. Only the relative ranking of a players qualifying hand. As for the logic of it all, it's a man-made game, so if anything, the rules are arbitrary.

comment How to count the power of cards in hand?
I thought this answer from robotics.se Meta might be useful in improving this question. Perhaps rewording or adding to the question to help define the most important areas to study, relating to your problem.

comment Why is this a poor play?
As @corykendall states in this answer, I think you've misunderstood the context of what's written, regarding pre-flop and post-flop distinctions.

comment Can someone offer a comparison (pros and cons) of the sites that one can play for real money on in the US?
The comparisons in the original "duplicate" are a good representation of the depth of comparison between sites you'll ever get. I'll close this question for that reason.

comment How to best teach poker to a novice in 1 month?
Hi JFo. I like the idea of this question, but what I like most about it is that it could be about 3-4 distinct questions rather than one big one! Please consider splitting the post into individual questions, that focus more closely on each aspect you're hoping to learn more about. Also, you'd no doubt get a lot more responses, as people would give clearer, more succinct answers and not essay length responses as this seems it would need. Some of the questions you propose are likely already covered on the site.

comment The Importance of Mathematics in Poker
Bluffing correctly would actually be part of a mathematically optimal strategy, so although it might be more frequent, without extra information about profitability, it's problematic to assume that it's more or less important than any single part of a total strategy.

comment The Importance of Mathematics in Poker
Nice post, but I think the specific example you give is incorrect. maybe a typo? The matchup you state give's the Hero ~82% equity at this point. Otherwise, the post brings up some interesting points.

Not sure if I've heard of it? Any links you could provide in the question would be helpful.

comment The right bluff frequency
@SonerGönül A "bluff" frequency calculation is just a weighted equity calculation where you would manipulate the folding frequency of the opponent to figure out if your action was +EV. So, yes, there is a formula.

Possible duplication of "Publicly Available Poker Stats" question. There is a resource for poker hands in my answer here
