And I am gonna widen my range positionally.
Say K 9 at CO with 10 BB I raise 3X BB leaves me with 7BB stack.
Great if both blinds fold, but if one calls then there's 6.5BB in the pot.
Postflop play becomes too difficult,
I have to rely on hitting a card post flop(less than half the time).
If I dont hit (most of the time) I have to c-bet or make a courage call if the villian will bet /steal the pot, . either way I will not win the pot checking it down.
I pretty much have to decide wether I am pot commitment post flop.
Not the way I would go out of the tournament, I rather push shove 10 BB into the blinds, I have fold equity.most players are not maniacs , they are usually out early or have such a huge stack that this play would not work.
If the blind wake up with big pair and call then I can live with that.
I feel more comfortable with your strategy and play position with medicore cards if I have 20BB or more.
