comment Odds Calculation Texas Hold'em
You could probably calculate this quite quickly with my lcrocker.github.io/onejoker/cardlib

Absolutely. Checking here is cheating. No two ways about it.

comment Why this pot is split?
Repeat after me: poker hands have exactly five cards. Period. No more, no fewer. Stop trying to complicate what is really quite simple. Cards are dealt in various ways to players and to the board, but then each player plays a hand of five cards to determine the winner. Holdem, Omaha, draw, stud, lowball, all have 5-card hands. (Badugi is a popular exception).

comment Consecutive winning hands
I'm also 100% certain that a reasonable definition of "same" in this case is many times more likely than what is calculated here. This is one of those many "what were the odds of that?" questions that really doesn't have a meaningful answer.

comment How to play if you hit a straight on flop?
Just to jump in with the crowd here: yes, a raise on the turn is definitely called for.

comment What are the actual odds of being dealt pocket Aces?
You are mistaken. Probability is a measure of information. It does not matter where the cards are or where the players are, it only matters that the players don't know where the cards are. If you or your opponent had extra information (let's say you saw an ace on the bottom of the deck), that information would change your odds: you'd have a 1-in-425 odds of getting pocket aces instead of the normal (and correct) 1-in-221.

comment How to decide winner between equal double pairs in Texas holdem?
Yes, if you have a pocket pair, and your opponent has the other two of that rank, then a flush is the only way one will beat the other (of course, they can both lose to a third player). If this really happened as you described, and you can show a hand history, it is not "bias", it's completely wrong, and must be corrected.

comment How to deal with a table that always calls?
If they always call, then (1) rarely bluff, and (2) value bet everything. Limping in a lot probably isn't a good idea. Just play tight and don't fold weakly.

comment Do all players have to show their hand if they check on the river?
In a live game, the house rules determine who must show or muck in order, and players often muck. But in an online situation, since all players are entitled to see the hands, it makes sense for the site to just pre-emptively show them all to speed up the game and to minimize cheating. Some players may not like that, but that's part of the game.

comment Poker Rooms Comparison
These are not poker rooms. Rooms enclose three-dimensional space. We humans use them to meet in person and exchange physical tokens of money. Robots are quite rare. What you list above are websites, please let us not confuse the two on this website.

...or 4 in 50C3, with hands 45s to TJs. The former, for example, can flop A23, 236, 367, or 678.

comment Specific Hand recommended action
I think your mistake was not getting the money in on the flop. You bet, which is good; your opponent raised; even better. You should have jammed at that point rather than call and risk future scare cards. Bottom set is plenty to jam early with, but it's not good enough to slow play.
