Sit n Go: The Bubble. Part 2

Considering stack sizes on the bubble

Big Stack

If you are the big stack, you should avoid another big stack who has a similar number of chips like the plague! Don’t put in a lot of chips against the other big stack unless you have the nuts, or close to it!

Medium Stack

As a medium stack, you need to watch the bigger stacks. If all the bigger stacks have folded, act like a big stack yourself. If someone who’s got you covered is still in, tighten up three categories in the cut-off and two categories on the button when pushing. You can also act like a big stack if you’re calling a shorter stack and there’s not much chance of a bigger stack calling. If you’re thinking about calling a bigger stack’s all-in, be careful!

Short Stack

As the short stack, act like a medium stack when pushing, but call like a big stack. If you get really short, say under three big blinds, push all-in on any two cards whenever you’re in a blind.
