 06-13-2012, 02:55 PM #1 newbie   Join Date: May 2012 Posts: 27 re-shove stack? I listened to a poker podcast,and the commentator said the player to his right had a re-shove stack,but he is not worried because the player to his right doesn't know he has a re-shove stack? What is a re-shove stack and what size is a re-shove stack? if anyone can tell me that would be great. Thanks in advance.

A shoving stack is where you have a sufficient number of chips where if you choose to raise, your only meaningful raise size is all-in. So, for example, CO opens for \$4, BTN is sitting there with \$22. Normal re-raise (aka 3bet) sizes tend to be ~3x opening raise, which in this case would be \$12. But if BTN did that he'd only have \$10 left which makes him pot-committed anyway. So BTN's only meaningful bet-sizing is all-in. (Note however he might not actually go all-in, but to all intents and purposes, if he raises, he is all-in). A re-shoving stack is the same but when faced with the situation where someone has already shoved. Example: MP opens for \$4 (with \$96 behind), CO raises to \$12 (with \$88 behind), BTN shoves all-in for \$22. Action folds round to MP. Now MP is in a difficult position: if he just calls here, CO could then re-shove. CO has a re-shoving stack. The same applies if CO had just called MP's opening raise.

That's why MP should know about isolation play: if he wants to play with the guy that shoved, he's better shove too, to try to make CO fold. If he calls anyway... at least MP did everything he could.
