    Hi sapines1001! With KQs from UTG, if I'm going to open this hand (which I'd normally do about 1/3 of the time short handed), I'm going to make a standard raise to 2.2BB+1BB for each limper (2640). The other times I'll fold and if I'd been playing a large number of hands recently, then I'd fold it just about everytime and here's why... if anyone shoves over me, I cannot call. While KQs is a strong enough hand to shove with when short-stacked, it's not strong enough to call a shove with. If the opps perceive me as loose and will call light, then I need to muck and save the chips, as I cannot call a shove. If the opps perceive me as tight, then I can open it a % of the time and hopefully get them to fold. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)

        In tournaments my raise sizing changes depending on the stage of the tournament:

        In the early stages (first two or three levels) - I treat it like a cash game and raise 3x from early position and 2.5x from middle and stealing positions.

        In the next levels where the average stack is 20-50BB - I raise 2.5x from early position and 2 - 2. from middle and steal positions.

        In the later stages where the blinds and antes are high - I minraise from every position.

          Number of players at the table is irrelevant for me. I go by the size of the blinds. 3BB+1BB for blinds up to 100/200. At 100/200, I lower it to 2.5BB+1BB for each limper. Then at 1k/2k, I lower to 2.2BB+1BB for each limper.

            Meh,go back and look,REALLY LOOK,at the games we used to play here and I think you'll find that staying with 3x opens at 100/200 is holding on to that a little too long. You'll mostly be on like 15-30BB,on the high end (many times by 100/200 we'll be on a shove/fold stack)for stacks at 100/200 from what I recall and 3x is too much,IMO,at that level.

            I usually downshifted to 2. to 2.5x (position dependent) at around level 3 myself,as that would put me on somewhere between 20-50BB stacks most of the time.
