Say it is still early in a tournament. You just lost an average sized hand to the tables most agressive player. Your KK getting trumped by a AA caught on the river. The average chipstack at this point is 3300. Your sitting with 1000 and there are 150 people still in it. You get 10 Js are you slow playing to stay alive, Pushing all in on your 10 Js or waiting for something better to push.
Lets make this easy, without knowing the blinds amount.
Take the amount of your stack, divide it by the total of both blinds and antes(if any), which should give you your "M" value.
If you have an "M" of 10 or less, you are in a clear push/fold mode, provided there are no raises before you.
If you have no Idea what I'm talking about, you may just have to pick up "Harrington on hold'em" vols 1 & 2.
