===============

The “Sit And Go Endgame” System (SAGE)

1. SAGE: Computing a Power Index (PI)
a. The “power number” of each card is its rank. J=11, Q=12, K=13, A=15 (don't forget the ace is 15!)
b. Take the power number for your higher card and double it.
d. If it's a pocket pair, add 22.
e. If they're suited, add 2.
f. The sum is the Power Index (PI) of your hand.

2. SAGE: Using the PI
a. Compute the ratio (R) of the shortest stack to the big blind.
b. Look up the necessary PI for that value of R.
c. If the PI of your hand is greater than or equal to that value, then jam (if you're the button/small-blind) or call (if you're the big blind).

3. The SAGE Numbers
R Jam (SB) Call (BB)
====================
1 17 any
2 21 17
3 22 24
4 23 26
5 24 28
6 25 29
7 26 30

4. SAGE Example 1
a. Blinds are 500/1000. After the blinds are taken, the SB has 5635 chips and the BB has 2865 chips.
b. The SB has pocket 3's. PI = (2 x 3) + 3 + 22 = 31
c. BB has J4s. PI = (2 x 11) + 4 + 2 = 28
d. The value of R is the smaller stack (2865) divided by 1000 ˜ 3.
e. Looking at the table, the SB should jam, and the BB should call, since both have PIs higher than the respective entry in the table (22 for the SB and 24 for the BB).

5. SAGE Example 2
a. Same circumstance, but the blinds are 200 and 400.
b. Now R is 2865 divided by 400 ˜ 7.
c. The SB should still jam (his PI of 31 is greater than the necessary 26).
d. If the SB jams, the BB should now fold, since his PI (28) is smaller than the corresponding entry (30).
