Interesting. SNGPT says it is insanely +EV to push this here. Yet, for some reason I did not push this hand. I still have some learning to do. My pushbot radar is little out of whack... gotta stop pushing 9-2o UTG!! [img]/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

I think this is a perfect example of MJ Blind stealing article also. Hero (SB) and the BB both have less than a 10BB stack, and we are on the bubble. Pushing any 2 is +EV here.

What is the BB was even stacked with me, or very short stacked? How does it change?

I be more likely to push if he has more chips... more likely to fold (less committed).

Also he then has enough to 'fold into 3rd'

If he is even stacked with Hero, the push is still +1 EV if he is in the average calling range. In the loose range, it is a toss up between push and fold. IMO, there is no way I push this if he has an even stack with me. Pushing that small edge does not seem worth it when there is a t760 at the table.

If he has less chips, pushing any 2 cards is still very +EV.

I don't get it man. If you have SNGPT and can run the numbers in like 2 seconds, why make a post? Then you ask how it changes if he's even with you or shorter. Why not just change the numbers around a bit and run it?

Just look at it from a logical point of view instead of needing SNGPT as a crutch. BB should be insanely tight given how short UTG is. He'll be folding all but the best then, right? So use common sense.

Sadly, many opponents don't play a perfect bubble [img]/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] and thus calls more than you want to.
