9-man turbo SNG. Heads up, blinds 600/300/50. Villan has 2250 in BB. I have 10250 in SB.
What is my shove range here?
Are there any good tutorials on very high blinds heads up ?

Hi,

When it comes to such short stack depths (10bb or less) heads up, almost any two cards will do being the pusher, especially any face card! Although you can pitch hands like these into the muck, 82 72 62 52 42 etc.. At this stage it's all about the blinds and antes for the win with very little to no post flop play at all! Often you will see players become extremely tight when reaching heads up play in a 9-Max sit n go, many contributing factors as to why this may be... and this is a perfect opportunity to exploit them when the effective stack reaches 15bb or less. With a hand like T5o, we are never really going to be in to bad of shape if called, 60/40 or 70/30 and even if we lose the hand they'll still have less than 10bb.

Hope this helps


Good luck and good decisions,
CannonLee
