What is your shove range in this spot if you have no further information on the two people in front of you?

One of the reasons for the post is to let everyone know about . Both Zooks and myself post hands over there for further discussion. Its a 1343452349% better way to send someone a hand rather than reading the full text (like above).

For results go to my weaktight site.

For Zooks weaktight site go here.

Also there is an option on the site to friend people and you can get all of their hands posted through an RSS feed. Check it out.


  1. I would shove pretty much ATC here (top 90% of hands). You have enough chips left to damage the remaining stacks if they were to call with weak/speculative hands. you are only getting called by top few hands, so most of the time you can steal here profitably.

  2. With 4 BB and antes I think you can shove any two.

    I don't feel like doing the math but I'll do it if you PM me on Ante Up.
