Calling the math guys for some help here.
A couple of questions. With these bounty tourneys popping up more frequently.... and with bounties that are half of the buyin size how should we be adjusting our calling ranges? In this hand I basically didn't factor them at all because they were only $100 each, but I'm pretty sure that I was mistaken and they should be calculated, just not sure how.
If 55 is an easy fold, what pair is an easy call, 10's? I've just been thinking that there isn't that much difference between 5's and other mid pairs in this spot.
Eh, pre's really not very good 10 handed, even with a big stack. It's easy to look down at a pair and just open but you really shouldn't here. Honestly calling with 55 is probably breakeven or losing just vs the first guy's shove (unless you know he's very wide), with the second guy's it's just a trivial fold.
In the moment, I probably wouldn't bother factoring in bounties. Not a math guy but I think these bounty tournies are 350+100 so you could add like ~30% of the starting stack (12k? starting in these so like 3600 chips) of the chips to the pot, but given that the pot is so huge relative to that at a FT it's close to irrelevant.
Edit: just saw your other post about the bounty, I guess 50% of starting stack if it was a 230+100, still irrelevant though
