Another random question, but a question nonetheless.

Hero is on BTN with a stack of 95 BB's, just before the bubble burst of a tournament, 320 places paid, 356 players left, and everyone folds to Hero (who has been playing fairly standard for the whole time of the tournament) in which is dealt 75s, and he is vs. SB with a stack of 65 BB's, (who is a LAG, VPIP%: 39%, PFR%: 80%, folds to BTN open%: 43%, 3-bets preflop%: 33%, and C-Bets flop%: 100% and folds to a C-Bet on flop%: 10%, all these stats out of 100 hands recorded), and the BB with a stack of 40 BB's, (who is a rock/NIT, VPIP%: 10%, PFR%: 6%, folds to steal%: 96%, all these stats out of 220 hands recorded), is it a good time to use small ball poker strategy vs. a couple of players with these types of stat ranges with Hero's holding? or is it better to fold and wait?

I would in this situation have waited but it would be better to do otherwise ))

what was hero's stats? Just curious

'standard' isn't sufficient in knowing how others see you.

OK, thanks for the advice guys, and Hero's stats are moderate standard average well respected player type. a player with good credit stats, so low VPIP% and low PFR, more like a TAG, sorry for missing that vital information out :p

I don't think 356 left/520 paid is considered "right before the bubble" but I'm nit picking.

What are blinds? Are there antes?

In general, I'm opening up this pot for 2.25-2.5 BBs.

i would've folded, i feel small ball poker wouldn't have worked at this stage. It also all depends on the guy's table image, stack, position, antes etc.

fold and wait since BB has 40 blinds and being in bubble is very likely not page to not compromise with the poso and small blink is a very predictable post flop player which weakens his game

Did you mean 320 paid? Yeah, I agree with you on opening to 3 BB's especially if there are ante's
