comment How often should I bluff in poker?
@KarlKnechtel: Another consideration is the "speed" of the GAME. Some games are "fast" with a lot of bluffing going on. In such cases, you should (almost) "always" have them when you bet--to catch bluffs and slow the game down. Other games are "slow" with few bluffs and few calls. In such cases, you should sometimes bet when you don't "have them" (bluff) to "steal" money and speed the game up.

comment What does it mean to check behind?
It is a real advantage to check (bet, or raise) "behind," (after everyone else has acted) which is why you can play weaker cards than usual on the "button," or "last" position.

@ire_and_curses: A "button cycle" is a cycle in which the "button" (that determines the dealer and the blinds) has been around to each person once. It's actually the same number of games as the number of players at the table.

comment What Is the Preferred Strategy For the US in Axis and Allies? Why?
@sixtyfootersdude: I was talking about METHODOLOGY, not contribution. What you said is true, that other nations did most of the work. But in this context, the discussion was about the historical sequence of events, in contrast with proposed game strategies.

comment New idea in Sicilian for white?
@picakhu:Is the idea of 3e5 questionable? I would say that depends on what kind of game you're in, and who your opponent is.

comment What is the difference between thickness and heavy stones?
@BilltheLizard: Heavy stones are such because they are NOT safe. If they were, they'd be "thick."
