Are these guidelines the same for MTT and SNG or if the tournament with rewards for knocking out, they do not depend on the type of tournament hyper, turbo, slow?
I can’t understand the fifth principle:” There’s 25% or more of our stack sitting in the middle.” Could you explain by example?
This is a lot more aggressive than I am used to but looking forward it trying it out. I'm sure it puts a lot of pressure on opponents!
I liked this video as it actually challenges a mindset of not wanting to risk too many chips versus making the right play at the right time. Many passive players will be trying to dearly (and expensively to them in the long run) hold on to chips and min raise in such situations where they really should be shoving. The impact of antes on the shove decision is one I too hadn’t appreciated but will now incorporate that into my thinking.
The explanation of the reason for shoving was clear and makes it easier to apply and maximise opportunity to win.
Glad to hear this! It's extremely common to be too selective when short stacked--I'm sure you'll have the ranges down in no time!Great video! I think so far this is definitely the one that will help me the most in the future. I have a tendency to be too selective when I'm short-stacked and these rules will certainly help my short-stack play.
I just wanted to clarify, but by saying effective stack it means we should be shoving if say our stack is 50BB and one opponent behind us has 7BB?
I think push fold is an important element of poker! And here the main thing is to know which push range will be profitable!There are profitability tables for pushing from positions, and if you study them, you will greatly strengthen your game!
I could be wrong but I am a little confused by the whole concept of push from position profitability tables. You could have 8 guys to go through or one guy to go if you push your chips all in with AA you can still get them cracked or your A10 can be beat by AJ. Making up rules to automatically push for from position in any card game you play in whether it be $10 buy in or $1000 buy in seems risky. How can it be profitable when you only need to have one bad beat or one cooler in a tourney to knock you out whether it is early in the tourney or late in the tourney. Poker isnt like black jack I dont think you can have hard and fast rules to play by religiously that prove to be profitable over along period of time. The reason I say this is because there are so many instances in just one tourney where all your chips are on the line but you dont get paid prize money everytime you go all-in in one tourney if you are successful. Like you get paid in black jack after every successful hand. You have to risk those chips many times in the course of one tourney before you get the prize money. If you were paid off every-time you went all in and took something out of the tourney that would be different and if you could stay in the tourney after getting knocked out and having all your chips taken or being able to re-buy when in the money push fold charts would make more sense to me. But particularly late in a tourney when the blinds are really high i think push fold charts are even less effective. Like there seems to be an overwhelming consensus or unwritten rule that when you get down to 10 - 15 bigs you should shove with any half decent hand. I think when you are late in a tourney or final tabling a tourney 10 - 15 big blinds is a heck of a lot of chips still to play with you are looking at still having about 5 - 8 full orbits of play that is 45 - 72 hands especially in on line play where it seems like you get a premium holding (preflop) at least once every two orbits. You can still wait on a premium hand for a double up. You don't have to shove your Ax as soon as it comes.Also late in tourneys or on final tables alot of the time the big stack has between 25 and 50 bigs max so the stack sizing is maximized and 10 -15 bigs is a good chunck of the total pie. IMO
I didn't understand this shove with a A8 against only a player of the big blind, considering that the action came to you with a min raise. Maybe a limp should be more interesting in that position.
So shoving depends on how many chips you have not what cards your holding that's what i'm doing wrong :icon_stud ???
