With me and Tenbob sitting at around 400BBs in the 25NL game we played the other day, we got to talking about what our calling ranges for each other are.
Deepstack play is all about implied odds
, and we can call PF with a much wider range of hands since there's so much to be won postflop if we hit. I joked by saying I'd call a raise from him with 32o and up, but really how low can we go?
This is of course a pretty general question, but I'll give a more specific situation:
Seat 1: aloevera ($30.15 in chips)
Seat 2: Stefanicov ($61.85 in chips)
Seat 3: MrSticker66 ($32.85 in chips)
Seat 4: hott_estelle ($20 in chips)
Seat 5: ChuckTs ($100 in chips)
Seat 6: PLF_DBA_MAN ($23.45 in chips)
Seat 7: Freakakanus ($19.95 in chips)
Seat 8: dakota-xx ($19.80 in chips)
Seat 9: tenbob ($100 in chips)
Freakakanus: posts small blind $0.10
dakota-xx: posts big blind $0.25
*** HOLE CARDS ***
Dealt to ChuckTs [X X]
tenbob: raises $0.5 to $0.75
ChuckTs: calls with...
For the sake of simplicity, let's just say that the players behind us won't raise, but they might call. Also for the sake of simplicity, I've changed our starting stacks to $100 each (400BBs).
How crappy of a hand do you call with here?
What if we're only sitting with 200BBs? 300BBs? >400BBs?
At what point do we literally call with any 2 cards?
