I don't understand why we would ever consider calling 22, and is it not an easy fold for 33 and 44?
Ive seen a few people call shoves with these hands as if its standard for 6-12bb, surely its not a good plan?
When facing a shove from a wide range, the small pairs play better as we are dominated a relatively small % of the time and favourite against every other hand with an overlay from the antes.
For example 44 plays better than a2o, j10o etc against 70% push ranges. Playing about with poker stove is enough to analyse this kind of stuff.
Fwiw I think people grossly overestimate their edge in these turbo tournaments and passing up the small edges is a mistake for "better spots".
never thought of it like that in terms of small pairs. Like mr hopkin, i am folding them mosty in these spots.
might download poker stove and have a play.
