comment How Can I Tell If My Opponent Is Aware Of My Image/Range?
Thanks. I particularly like the last paragraph. Simple and useful comparison.

comment How Can I Tell If My Opponent Is Aware Of My Image/Range?
I suppose I did have online play in mind when I wrote it so that would be my preference for answers. That said, it's definitely relevant to both.

@sobolan is right.

comment $1/$2 Live - Turned top two pair facing heat (line check)
Not sure so I'll mention it... Have you considered the possibility of A9x and J9x are in his range? Obviously, 99 & 33 are there as well.

comment Is there an app for managing invitations to a home poker game?
This seems like a software question and not a poker question! That said, if you get any interesting hands from the games make sure to post them here :)

comment Is a semi-unlimited stack a significant advantage?
Remember that stack size is relative. For example, If you have $60 in your stack, it doesn't matter if your opponent has 2x, 3x, 20x your stack, because your top-end risk is only ever $60 at any one time.

comment What is a 'wet board'?
Ok, I see. I understand why you'd do this to avoid difficulty in categorizing flops. I'd say it's better though to consider wetness as "always relative to an opponents range". For instance, if your opponent has no hand at all (mucked), in your definition a board still has a texture which obviously can't be true. It's just semantics I suppose but I like to make discussion as easy as possible through consistent use of terminology :)

Interesting point of view. Although the last paragraph seems to me to contradict itself, can you explain further?!

He had a high cbet frequency. Over 80% if I remember. I checked to encourage his bet.

comment Optimal Win Rate Standard Deviation
It's been brought to my attention that you haven't denoted what measurable unit your win-rate and StDev figures represent. e.g. Are they in $USD/100 hands or bb/100 hands? If you could update it, that would be great, otherwise i'll just assume you meant bb and do it soon myself. Thanks.

comment How to maximize expectation with pocket aces and an Aces Cracked bonus running
Your line looks fine to me but, without extra details like bet sizing or stack sizes, Its difficult to say more. Also, is this Limit (LHE) or No-Limit (NLHE)?

comment What metrics do you use to evaluate your own live play performance?
Your points are useful, but the question specifically relates to "Live" poker so any discussion of online tracking isn't necessary.

comment Is just calling the big blind a poor strategy?
@jeff you're right! My eyes saw it differently! A little rewording and my answer still holds, but thats for others to say.

Sorted your question "User link". Also, please use the flag link to alert mods, not answers. Thanks.

comment Should I call opponent's flop re-raise with trips?
A $90 raise on flop by Hero would be a "pot" bet. Considering how much money villain has behind, and the usefulness of overbetting to $110 (~1.33 "pot" bet), I believe that it's not far over the top at all. It's reasonable if you think villain will continue.

You didn't explicitly say this, but I assume that you raised all in after the villains flop 3-bet?

comment Readless Preflop Strategy for Pokerstars HU Hyperturbo SNGs?
Is the 20-25bb stack what you start with? Also, is it 6max or Full Ring? How quick do the blinds increase and by how much each level? Thanks. I'd assume some use of Nash's equilibriums might come into this.

comment Micro Stakes, playing Big Aces pre-flop against multiple very loose opponents
@bmartins "If your raises are routinely called by 3+ players, then your raise is probably not large enough." This is all the information you need in this situation. If your opponents are willing to call with worse hands, how big of a mistake are they willing to make?! Bet/Raise more $$$.

Just a small note. Technically sound poker does not require any "praying"! ;)
