  • Today’s post is about push/fold strategy – an approach that is crucial to understand and apply if you want to be successful at tournament poker. Push/fold strategy is basically an “all or nothing” pre-flop mindset that a player goes into when their chip-stack is depleted to 10 x big blinds or below.
  • Push/Fold as the Basis of Your Tournament Strategy. You probably don't realize how much money you're losing in the late stage of poker tournaments when preflop action gets limited to just push or fold. In this video Valentin Kuzub, the creator of ICMIZER explains the importance of optimal push fold strategy in modern poker tournaments.

Pre-flop: (1.5bb) BN push 12 BB, Hero is in the SB. The Nash Equilibrium strategy for the BN is to push 32.1% hands. If we introduce a fishy player to the game who only pushes 16%, we can use a push-fold calculator to get the players’ change in EV if the blinds continue playing Nash Equilibrium and if they adjust to the MES (Table 13).
