      The Li's conjecture states that on a poker table, if the posiitions are chosen uniformly at random, the game theoretical optimal will give the smallest stack on table non negative EV, that is the smallest stack as an edge. The reason supporting this is that bigger stackers should pay more attetion about how to play against other bigger stackers rather than how to play against the small stack. Any thought about this?

      For example, if you have 1bb, and everyone else has 30bb, you can get all in with 1bb against 2.5bb very often.
      Closer to reality, if you have 10bb, and plays jam/fold, everyone else has 100bb, once you shove, it makes them much harder to call than if they had 10bb, because they have to think about what if someone after them squezes. Moreover, if 2 ppl flat your shove, they might bet each other out. E.g. you shove QQ, 1010 flats, and AK flats, flop comes 259, 1010 bets, AK fold and you don't need to worry about AK's outs anymore.
