UTG: 1445
UTG+1: 2640
MP: 670
CO: 780
Button: 2710
Hero: 1010
BB: 745

Blinds at 50/100.

All folds to hero that holds 69o. Assume the BB doesn't call with everything. Say, all pairs, all aces, all kings, any two cards above T.

Given those calling standards its a minorly +EV push, i'd let it go. At 75/150 its a pretty clear push.

at what buyin do you regularly get called by K2 and JT here?

Fold with these blinds and stacks. You're healthy and stealing from him here lowers the amount of folding equity you have vs this guy later on.

The reason I'm asking is because the SnG PT says I should push with any two in that spot vs that calling range. I found it strange since the blinds, as you said, are still not that high.

I'm very new to sng stuff, and need yet to find out how to calculate the EV of situations like this. But the program, and I assume it's ok based on the things posts I've read, says it's +EV. I don't mind busting out at this stage, rather now than on the bubble. Is that the wrong way to approach this?

L4-L6, pick up t150, t225, t300.

If you think your opponent will fold most hands here, shove it. Of course, if they pick up that you're pushing any 2, or just get frustrated, you need to shorten your pushing range, a lot.

I guess I should've remembered if the blinds was about to go up as well, making it even an easier decision. In this case though, I don't think anyone would believe me to push any two, and him sitting on another 6 BB after posting, I doubt he'd call lightly.

It's not the worst move in the world to push here. I may let it go though so when the blinds go up to 75/150 he doesn't think I am pushing crappy hands from the SB. If I do it here and then again later he may be more likely to call. Kind of a metagame consideration there, I guess, which ICM (and therefore SNGPT) doesn't take account of.

Yah. Great, think I'm starting to get this. =)
