Hi ads,

Although it's a button vs blind war, at 2NL I don't think players are 4b/stacking off lite until I have such a read. From everything I keep hearing, except from LAGgy players (a read) the avg 2nl zoom player's 5b stack off range is KK+. Which is obviously pretty bad for QQ. And the hand has too much value to fold, we have 15-1 implied odds to take a flop for this small sizing he's made. So I think that's the play.

Again for clarity, vs players with expanded ranges in blind wars, stacking off QQ is fine. vs. players who will only have nutt-ed hands when it goes 4B/5B, it's not so great imo.
