3. Effective Stack Size

In this video we will focus on stack size. The easiest way for us to refer to a specific situation in a Spin & Go would be to refer to effective stack size in big blinds. Effective stack size is the smaller of the stack sizes between two people. The term reflects the fact that, when a larger stack goes all-in against a smaller stack, they can only lose up to the amount of chips that the smaller stack started the hand with. Watch the video to learn more.
