comment In live play, why do poker players wait their turn before looking at their cards?
The rule itself does not force/encourage the order, but was just an example to show that TV does have a say. The rules for TV presenters on the U.S. tour are less specific.

comment In live play, why do poker players wait their turn before looking at their cards?
There are two question disguised as one here. One: In live play on TV, why do poker players wait their turn before looking at their cards? Two: Is it smart to wait to look at your cards until it is your turn to play? Perhaps you should consider asking two separate questions?

comment Can I move HUD info on PokerTracker?
Toby is correct, this specifically leads to pokertracker.com/guides/PT4/hud/… which in detail describes Gaz' answer and even a second way of doing it (that works too!).

This answers the question about if this is a compromise worth making, and has been marked as the correct answer, but I do believe that the real reason everyone waits it that they are told to. See my answer for more details.

comment Why can't folded hands compete for sidepots?
This is incorrect: You don't have to stay in until you're all in, just as long as you don't fold.

comment Why can't folded hands compete for sidepots?
@Linger It is probably not a good strategy to always try to bet the remaining player out of the hand, in particular if you have a crappy hand that completely missed the flop. Then you risk the remaining player calling you and you lose additional chips. Sometimes - yes, Always - no.

Ctrl + click did the trick :)

Thanks for the suggestion, but unfortunately it did not work. I tried the same with the left mouse button, but that did not work either.

comment What tournament size is best to play if completely new to on-line playing Texas hold-em?
This does no answer the question at all and is just promoting a specific site. I would down vote if I could.

comment Is Small Ball Poker In Cash Games A Good Strategy?
+1 I don't agree that it is terrible as I have myself employed small ball and won at cash games, but I do agree that the rake and the lack of antes necessarily makes the pots smaller. Negreanu, in the book mentioned, recommends raising with 2,5BB, because in a full ring tournament game with antes that is less than the amount in the pot. In cash games you can't raise to an amount that is less than the pot (2,5BB is 60-70% more than the pot in cash games). This makes stealing much more expensive and therefore small ball less viable (but not necessarily completely unviable).
