comment All in when you are chip leader
A player can only win money he can cover. If you go all in with one chip, and all 9 opponents go all in for over a million, you win (assuming you win) 10 chips--yours and one from each other player. If you can't cover the bet, you can't win it.

comment Revealing hand thinking bet was covered
Yes, there are places with that house rule, especially in tournaments. But when the tournament itself is head-up, it's really stupid.

comment is this a misdeal?
A single exposed card on the initial deal is not a misdeal unless it is one of the first two cards dealt. Dealer should leave the card face up, continue dealing, then replace the exposed card with what would have been the first burn. Two or more exposed cards is a misdeal.

comment is this a misdeal?
Agreed. WAY too much action for a misdeal. Players who put money in the pot are entitled to action on the hand.

comment Are online poker sites rigged?
"Rigged" implies that the site owners themselves are the cheats, and I think that's unlikely. You are, however, 100% guaranteed to be cheated by other players.

comment Poker blinds Question
Blinds, straddles, kills, and sleepers are generally covered by house rules, and differ greatly from place to place.

comment Who won in this scenario? Both players have a pair
You haven't actually given us enough information to answer the question unless we make some assumptions. Next time you ask, tell us what all 9 cards are (your two, his two, the five on the board).

comment Calling out tells
Yes, during the hand it is very, very, against the rules. Between hands, if you want to say "Bob has this tell...", it's a free country. But during the hand, if Bob makes a bet and you tell Fred "call him, he's bluffing", Bob is entitled to beat you senseless and no one would be the least bit sympathetic. Yes, it happens on TV all the time, just like string bets, but in real poker games, people have been shot for less.

comment What's the minimum raise rules of NLHE
All correct, but you neglect to mention the rules themselves: namely, (1) The big blind is the opening bet for all players; going all in for less is legal, but has no consequence for future players options; (2) Each raise must raise at least the amount of the previous raise. (3) If an all-in raise fails to meet rule 2, then it is not truly a raise but a call with extra money; players who called the bet immediately before that are obliged to call the extra money or fold, but may not re-raise because they were not themselves raised. There may be variations in some house rules.

comment Kicker cards - and splitting pots
It likely was downvoted because this same question or one very like it is asked (and answered) every day. And because even a cursory Google search will answser it. The Wikipedia articles on Poker, in particular, are very clear on these points.

comment Kicker cards - and splitting pots
Again, poker hands have EXACTLY 5 CARDS, no more, no less. I should make this a keyboard macro since a question like this comes up here at least once a day.

Poker hands have EXACTLY 5 CARDS, no more, no less. Your hand is 2-2-A-Q-6, his hand is 2-2-A-Q-7.
