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"! ;)

comment Heads up NLHE, is it harder to beat rake then full ring?
I've no doubt your answers score would improve if you could add some depth of analysis to your statement.

comment Is there an optimum formula for deciding chip denominations?
I think you make an interesting point about the distribution of chips in play with respect to what is used most frequently.

comment Interesting Spot in Penny Poker: Overpair vs Nit on Wet Board
I actually agree that it's almost certain to be wrong to assume villain is competent, but if I don't make that point, I can't run an analysis. Decisions inferred from random data don't work so well ;)

comment How often, and how much, should I bluff on the river when I miss my flush but a possible straight comes?
You've given an answer. Thus, it's in the wrong place. You should move it. Thanks. (This link here discusses it in depth)

@JohnDibling Comments on questions are best used to gain "clarification" and/or additional information. Comments on answers are best used to gain clarification and, to avoid duplicating good answers, to add helpful additions to the existing response. Your response is most useful as a comment to Jeffreys answer.

@JohnDibling Isn't that a comment that should be placed beneath Jeffreys answer, and not the question.

comment Most common freerolling situations in holdem?
Out of curiosity, I'd like to know what you or others might gain from having this question answered. What use would it be?

comment How often, and how much, should I bluff on the river when I miss my flush but a possible straight comes?
Using examples of other hand historys, is it possible for you to adapt a hand to show in much more detail the situation you describe? Pot size, bet sizes, all prior actions, table dynamics, are all critical to this decision. I'd like to answer but it wouldn't be as specific as this situation requires. Thanks.

comment How do I structure the blind levels of a tournament to run for a certain length (on average)?
Did you use the search function? There are quite a few related questions (with answers) such as this one or this one that might be useful. Search for "tournament" and "setup" or something similar and you'll most likely find what you're looking for, rather than repeat the process here again.

comment HUD states - current or database based
As Jeffrey says, most well known database tracking software will allow you to customize the information displayed. Filtering hands for specific cash limits, tournament blind levels, enabling "tool tips" to display the total and current session stats are all useful, but are heavily dependent on volume of hands tracked. Personally, if I have 250 hands on an opponent I should have picked up some exploitable information by then. Also, playing a session without a HUD occasionally, but regularly, is a good way to learn what the most useful information is that you may have overlooked.
