So I'm playing a tournament currently, with the blinds at 100/50 and ante 10. I have 20BB and I"m sitting with a 70BB on my left and 90BB on my right and both have VPIP around 50. So my question here is how would y'all play this? I know that you play differently if the big stack is on your left or right but what if they're on both sides and both playing like classic big stack bullies (big raises almost every hand)?
I have great bankroll management, it started at $0 and it's still at $0
With those stack sizes your stack should be pretty easy to play, with 20bbs effective stacks you dont really have much room to maneuver and pretty much any stack at the table can jam over a raise. So all you have to do is be conscious of ICM and play your hands pretty much straightforward. If one of the villans is playing aggro against you and you are feeling saucy you can Nash jam over his weak range, but ICM should really be the driver of your decisions.
