  • BB or M ?

    I have two push/fold charts, one is based on your stack(BB) and the other one on your M ratio. I know that the M chart is a little better because it takes into consideration the size of the pot(blinds + antes), but if you have to start shoving with an M of 8 or less and you have 18-20 BB, dont you think that you are risking too much?
    Should I start shoving with 12-14 BB and an M of ~6 ?
    What do you guys think?

    What type of blind structure? Depending on the tourney style, I may start shoving at 18-20BB, or I may not shove until 5BB... it depends.

      I used to only have BB on my chart (and my HUD), but then I added M to both. Provided your stack is less than 20bb - and antes are involved - then I think M is the way to go. In HEM2, there's even a stat called "adjusted BB" which takes into account the antes, so you could just use that and never have to worry about M.
