Hi Kiroman68

Here we actually have an M of 5. 21600 / 4200 = 5.xx


It does seem a little borderline but with 13.5bb's and A10o in the HJ+1 position this is a +ev shove. We are increasing our stack size by 20% if it gets through. Unlucky to run into AJ and AA! Better luck next time

There's another way of thinking about this hand that uses the concept of adjusted big blinds. We technically only have 7.7bb here, because of the antes that are in play. The effect the antes have basically make shoving anything we would be on 7bb profitable, even though we technically have 13bb. Because of the effect of the antes, our stack is almost half of what it appears to be, which makes the hands we can shove much more numerous than if there were no antes in play.

I would shove as wide as A8 here. If the people behind me were tight, I might shove even more aces, but I don't think shoving A8 will ever be -EV here, so shoving AT is even better.

That's a great analysis!

Thank you very much for it

P.S. Please, forgive me to post the hand in the wrong place and thank you for move it in the right place I will be more careful next time (even if I know now where to post )
