Only one player can bet (a), player b can call/fold/raise.(maybe you was thinking that player b call 100 here)
Player d can raise if he have more chips then player c all-in.

Assuming he has more than 120 chips, yes, of course, why wouldn't he?

(You're thinking the short stack's shove somehow magically prevents all further raises. It doesn't. It just doesn't count as a raise. It's the same as if the short stack only called. If the short stack had called or folded would d be able to raise? Of course he would. Shorty's shove doesn't change anything.)

You said it yourself, minimum full raise is to 68. Since it's a full raise the betting is reopened and BB can raise again. I'm not sure why you're confused since you just posted exactly this?

bb/100 is a measure for your winrate. It shows how many big blinds you win every 100 hands you play.

In your example it's 10.34bb/100hands not 10.34bb/100bb.

Da foq?
OK let me take this serious for a sec...
Say that its the advantage of a good pokerplayer basted on long term results.
Where a bad player just has luck & has like 1/2 chanse of seeing his money back.
How ever if you are better then that player you have more chanse to win so you'll get 1.1/2 to win your money back so if you run that time after time you don't break even you win?

I have no idea what the 1.1/2 rule means bro but this is what I made of it with the cointflip story about long term poker xd

I don't think you're gonna get any action here at BQ. try the HU SNG forums.

Re: ***** Official Dumb Questions Thread ****

1. Is heads up play easier to analyse than regular games as less factors to consider eg position?

2. HUD can be inaccurate if you play someone in cash/tournament then play them heads up. How do i counter this.. is there a way I can see if my stats are HU or not?

Re: ***** Official Dumb Questions Thread ****

Are there any threads on here to do with setting up your Poker Tracker 3 hud, stats and using the colours (say red for a nit VPIP stat) for micro stakes cash games?

If there is also ones for how to use it for other things for beginners, preferably on a apple mac, the links would be much appreciated.

They're probably are, but you might find more help on PT's website in their forums.

They have a whole section dedicated just to PT3.

Everyone plays, every one hates the site, nobody exactly knows why.

There is lots of eye candy and other gambling going on on party, it attracts the non poker player average joe who just wants to gamble, a lot of free money for the tags.

I think I'd try Affiliates/Rakeback found under Internet Poker.

If it's with Moneybookers and a particular site, perhaps see if the site is listed under Sponsored Support.

How do you quickly calculate 2/3 pot LIVE? Dividing by 3 is not that easy.

Re: ***** Official Dumb Questions Thread ****

more psyhological question

playing currently NL5. noticed that at that limit my winning depends on my calling/open raiseing/3betting hands chart. for example starting to play TAG with tight range and with this strategy Im winning after some time I can start thinking about calling with some gapers from SB "to hit straight or flush", thinking about calling with any suited A "to hit flush" and other thought like this. and after calling with this hands more aften I will miss not just nut hands but even draws and start loosing. why is that happening? sometimes I can play TAG and win but other times Im starting thinking like that

Divide by 6, then multiply by 2.
