Re: Let's Have a Discussion about Open-Raise Sizes: Raising OOP

This won't get anywhere near the point of AA-or-fold in the BB if the SB's raises are intended to produce a constant stack-to-pot ratio.

Once the SB gets to 100% open-raise, if he ups his raise size in order to keep a constant ratio of stack-to-pot, then the BB's always going to have the same pot odds to push or fold preflop, and can always push the same hands, setting a lower bound on his loss no matter how big the stacks get.

Even at 50:1 stack:raise, the BB can push ~20% of his hands, with an overall result of ~-.67 BB/hand.
