Playing to tight can have that problem of running short.
Find who you can pick on at the table.
If the games are under 5$ STTs you can just about steal every time your on the button. When it's folded to you.
One key i would like to make, that stealing will help keep your M in the range that's safe. Also even with an M=10 you can still do a 3X raise just remember to add 1BB per limper..
Sorry but I totally disagree with this ^ (which part of it?... umm.. pretty much all of it).
Firstly, when playing SNG's we're referring to #of bb's (M is rarely used to discuss SNG play). If we're playing on a site where there's antes in STT/SNG (ie. Pokerstars
) then we adjust our shoving range by about 1bb.
We can profitably open shove ALOT wider than is suggested here (I mean ALOT
Raise/folding with <10bb's is terrible.
... add 1bb per limper?? For sure in early level play but in end game, when we're on bubble?? a) who's limping? b) if you've got 10bb's and there's a limper & you're playing your hand... you're never raising 3bb+1bb.. you're shoving or folding in pretty much every case
Shoving is also player-read dependant (ie. if you see a guy who's calling raises in early-mid levels with A-rag..... this is often the same kinda player who is calling wide in late game play (but not always obv, sometimes this type of player does the opposite... loose in early-mid levels.. tight in late levels). Something to consider... do we figure villain to be ICM aware (or ICM dumb).. & if they are ICM aware... do we figure that they think we're ICM aware?
I've got a couple of push charts that I've used in the past (& helped to understand +EV shoves a bunch more in late game SNG play),.. one of them coming from a guy who's play I highly respect (has been on top of leaderboards quite often).
I could give you a couple of examples here.....
Top 28.5% (22+,A2+,KT, K9s, QTQ9s,JT,J9s)
Top 8.5% (66+,AT+,A9s+)
Top 44% (22+,A2+,K6,K4s,Q7,Q5s.....76s)
top60% (22+,A2,K2,Q2,J2,T6,T4s..... 53s)
atc top 100% (atc = any two cards)
more examples?... okay then with 5 players left (first to act is HJ (hi-jack) which would be utg with 5 left)
Top 8.5% (66+, AT+,A9s+) & suited broadways
Top 28.5% (see above or just punch in 28.5% on Pokerstove)... fold AXo hands though!!!
OP.. is this what you're looking for?
