 Small Stakes MTT Discussion and analysis of small stakes MTT strategy

Situation is as follows: 9 handed. 200/400/40. Everyone 4000 stacks. MP shoves 25.5%, 22+ A2s+ A5o+ K9s+ KTo+ Q9s+ QJo J8s+ T8s+ 98s 87s Now HRC, lets the bigblind call with 21.6%. I checked A7o. HRC says its +0.45. Which is pretty big. Ev(call with A70) = Pwin * ( 4000 + 200 + 360 - 80 ) + Ploose * ( -3560 ) Pwin = 44.1% ploose = 55.9% ev = 1975 - 1990 = -15 Chips. I must be missing something really stupid, do you guys see it?

In reality I don't think most villains will be that wide. Also don't forget that just because it's +chip EV doesn't mean that it's +EV for your tourney. It is probably correct to fold when the profit is only +0.41

The specific problem is that while you correctly don't count your BB and you own ante in the amount you now have to call - that money doesn't just disappear you forget to include it in money you could potentially win along with the SB and antes from other players. Ev(call with A70) = Pwin * ( 4000 + 400 + 200 + 360 - 40 ) + Ploose * ( -3560 ) (the -40 is not to double count villain's ante which is already included in his full 4000 stack). A much easier way of doing calculations is this: Ev(call) = Pwin *(size of pot won) - SizeOfCall If your equity in the pot is worth more than you pay to get that equity, you should make the call. The size of the pot won is (effective stack x 2) + (dead money from other players) Ev(call) = Pwin * (4000+4000+280+200) - 3560 = (0.441*8480) - 3560 = 3740 - 3560 = 180 = 0.45% of your stack.

If the sb and bb have 4000 chips (before start of hand) how can i win his whole stack (4000) and my own bb (400). that 400 is included in the 4000 i am about to win. or not?

Your potential net win relative to folding is his entire stack he's just put in, the antes from all players, the SB and the BB. (it's personal preference where you count his ante but don't double cout it) Your potential net loss relative to folding is the 3560 you have in front of you. Like I said in the second half of the post though, though don't do it that counter-intuitive way. Just work out how much your equity share of the total all-in pot is worth and how much you're expected to pay to have that equity.
