      Playing Rush poker I sometimes see open-shove with even normal stacks. I ussually dont have stats... What calling ranges are best?

      I currently use this... maybe its too nitty...

      AA - ofc any stack
      KK - up to 40 BBs
      QQ - up to 20 BBs
      JJ, AK - up to 10 BBs + up to 20BBs if he is in steal position
      TT, AQ - up to 10 BBs if he is in steal position, otherwise fold

      KK 100bb
      AK QQ 50bb sometimes up to a stack depends on stats
      JJ TT up to 30-50
      AQ up to 20

      You should play for a stack with Kings .You play fr or sh

      Kings should be tricky... Yesterday I have seen 4-tabler at rush who only open-shoved... so if he uses this "strategy" his open-shove range should be (KK+) or (QQ+) or (QQ+ AK) - Kings are in bad shape vs 1st, losing slightly (rake) vs second and winning just slightly vs third.

      Ofc if someone open-shoves 25% hands then its easy call with even QQ or AJ.

      Vs KK

      Cards/Probability/Expected Return (%)
      AA / 12 / 34.35
      KK / 1 / 95.13
      QQ/ 12 / 155.90
      AK / 8 / 131.06

      (KK+) 39.03
      (QQ+) 95.13
      (QQ+ AK) 103.84

      ------

      Rakeback is counted as direct reduction of rake
      Blinds are ignored in calculation
