Re: Things it took me a while to learn part 1, Stack Sizes

10 BB’s and under. Basically, any hand you’re playing at this stack size is a shove. This is pretty common knowledge. However, with the increase in stars antes, and the high antes tilt already has, it very often becomes correct to start open shoving in the area of 15 BB’s.
When talking about shoving ranges with antes I’ve recently been turned onto a way of adding up you’re stacks relative size that I really like, known as ‘true BB’. What it comes down to is that the ‘true BB’ is 2/3rds of the starting pot. So if the blinds are 500/1000 with 100 ante at a 10 handed table then the starting pot is 2500 with a true BB of 1666. So if you’re sitting on the button with a hand like A5s and 15 BB’s, you can simply open shove since you have under 10 true BB’s.




Hmm @ "true BB's".

Are you saying that with M <= 6.67, it's fine to shove whenever you're open raising?

Am I missing some subtlety to "true BB" that captures something that the standard M calculation doesn't?
