How much do your opening ranges change at 50bb and below
It is profitable to limit with certain hands preflop, it is usually even more profitable to raise with these hands to create pressure on the blinds. Think of preflop poker as a pie chart. If you limp the button with JT and the big blind sees the flop for free with A2, he will win the pot about 51% of the time. This percentage of the pot he won is called equity. If you force him to fold preflop, you deprive him of equity, allowing him to draw the entire circle in your color, that is, win the entire pot.22 + / ATs + / AJo + / KTs + / KQ / 54s + / 64s + I use this range in a passive game with very deep stacks. If my opponents adjust with more frequent three-bets, I revert to a tighter range. When I use this range, I hope that nit players will three-bet me with an easy-to-read range, which will allow me to call and implement implied odds when the stacks are very deep.How much do your opening ranges change at 50bb and below
What does the distance show?:joyman:
Is it profitable to push 15b or is it better to push with 12b?
Just for me 15b is a working stack, you can open some hands in 2b
There are poker solvers who advise pushing with a small stack. The smaller the stack, the more preferable the push. In a 15bb stack, you can play certain opening hands in 2bb. But I prefer to play push-fold more often if I don't want to lure an aggressive player.
My open raising range depends on my position. In early position I raise fewer hands than in late position. I have a bluff open raising range also called the raise / fold range. This means that if another player 3-bet I will fold. There is also a raise / call range, these are my best hands. An example of an open raising range could be:
Raise / Fold: A6o-A9o, K9o-KJo, A2s-A8s, K8s-KJs, Q9s-QJs, J9s-JTs
Raise / Call: AT+, A9s, KQ+, 88+
The range always depends on your position and your reads on the players behind you. If a player folds frequently and barely defends his blinds, you can often put him under pressure and continue to open raise than a calling station.
