      Pretty easy to play from BB :f_biggrin:

      Profitability of those ranges depends on other's calling/shoving ranges, you might need to shove wider/tighter to make profit.

      Perhaps you should take this to 888.

      They have Push or Fold tables, Max 5 BB's :P

      No antes though..

      Yeah, the thing that the pot, even preflop, is bigger than anyone's stack most of the time, makes it hard to calculate exact profitable range, but it also means that we should push it quite a lot. Also, players are not really good too, if they see that we are pushing a lot, they will start to call even wider.

      if you have any kind of fold equity, I'd be pushing 75-85%.

      if your stack is 500 chips, and pot is 1.2k, you only need to win the pot less than 30% of the time to break even.

      so basically, vs 1/2 people to act i'd be shoving :

      any pair,
      any ace
      any king
      any suited queen.

      my calling range would be stuff with domination value:

      vs 1 person,

      55+
      any ace
      any suited king
      K5o+ (rough estimate)


      in multiway calling, you want to play less crappy pairs, so maybe 77+.
      drop the Qx and below.

      All I can think of.

      such a simple game, you can pretty much use nash equilibrium...

      Thanks for your input conall,

      But actually, if we say that pot is 1,2k, our stack should be 1k, not 500. So now we need at least 45% equity. That means range should be tighter.

      Also, about nash equilibrium, i trued to used, as you can see in first post, but it didn't let me to put 0 in blinds. I'll try to google now for one which lets to do that.
