I am sure the holdem resource is wrong

      today i check this situation in holdem resources

      blind 100 200 winner take all

      3 remaining players all have 1000 chips

      the holdem resource told me the co can push 39.1% , while bb can call with 48.4% hands

      it is ridiculous. seems its obvious the caller should call tighter than the pushers pushing range, i don't know why the caller can call looser than the pushing range in co.

      how to explain that?

      sometimes i just think the holdem resource's calculation has some problem.

      Hey davidgod!

      A) If it's a winner-takes-all tournament, then there is no risk aversion. If you are ahead, you put it in.

      B) The blinds are pretty high. The BB is getting very good pot odds with one fifth of the push already in the pot.

      I'm pretty sure the Nash calculator is correct :)
