    thx, Collin. this helped me a lot :). I have one qeustion though on the bubble or close to it against a compenate player that is 3b wide when you have like a 12bb to 15bb stack how would you proceed when stacks are about equil or if there are smaller stacks out there and the reg and you have about the same stack?

    Ty, Collin. Great job! This video answered my last question to your last video very clearly -:)), but there is also some work to do -:(

    #2 Sirilidion: Glad you enjoyed the video. To answer your question, I'd almost never raise small in spots like that, I'd just openshove the Nash range and fold the rest. Situations like that are ones where openshoving performs much better than raise/fold/call unless you're able to play very exploitively against weak opponents.

    Amazing vid Collin. It convinces me to work with Holdem Resources Calculator, make more relevant notes on the bubble, low or small ball stategy, -EV shoving to accumulate chips (controlled ofc), ... Thanks !

    Collin, I have red you book Sit'n Go Strategy like 3 times and watched most of your videos. In the book you emphasise ,that you should push any two cards rather than get blinded out. But in your videos I have never seen you shove any two against many opponents. You usually rather take the BB , than shove trash UG. Other pro's also do not shove any two against many opponents. So what is the right play?

    #6 Nagger82: Awesome, glad you enjoyed the video!

    #7 PayMyNutz: At the time I wrote the book, that play was a lot more effective than it is in the current games. So with a stack of 5bb or shallower UTG I would definitely take a negative edge when shoving, but am no longer usually shoving ATC.

    Great video, one of the best in the SnG section imo and i definitely will watch it more than once.

    But i think you made a mistake @ 21:14 In his openraising range there is K4o but not JJ; i think this type of player will never play like this. And in his r/c range you pot 88+, which is quite impossible due to the fact that he openraises just QQ+.
    Because of this i think its not correct to 3bet any2, but of course still very loose.
