Stealing Preflop Concept with Position

THE MOST POWERFUL AND IMPORTANT EV+ SPOT IN
TOURNAMENT POKER IS THE BUTTON

but NOT because you get to act last on subsequent streets.

Most importantly it is because their is only 2 players left to act behind you

the odds of those 2 hands being premium isn't the greatest

causing a natural mathematical increase in our opponents average fold equity if we raise preflop from the button

compared to their "range" and the odds of being dealt that said "range"
they might only defend with 15% of all possible combinations

meaning 85% of the time we can get the fold

if they start to defend more than that
they leave themselves vulnerable with mediocre cards to a preflop raiser that has position.

Us being reraised preflop when they do hit that 15% is standard play

So we simply fold
don't be a hero
because we are winning as long as we don't give our game to play his
be the thief that is gonna come back and get 2/3 pots preflop from the button and be a great EV+
it will be an EV+ spot even if you fold AA on the 1/3 times he reraises you preflop
as long as you win 2/3 you will go up and he will go down
you do not need play any of the traditional strategy's of poker

I have won tourneys with just this simple concept.
simple yet not...it is a certain type of Mastery
