Learning to master a short stack is vitally important to becoming a well rounded professional poker player. Any poker player will know that your stack will eb and flow throughout a tournament and it’s important to be able to master changes in your poker strategy depending on your effective stack and opponents.
This hand took place during a $10,000 Poker Masters event in the PokerGO studio, Las Vegas. Brock Wilson starts the hand as the shortest stack at the table with 5 players remaining. His opponent, Elio Fox, is one of the larger stacks at the table.
Elio Fox is actually in an awkward spot preflop as he has some large stacks in the blinds still to act. If the blinds were shorter stacked then Fox could shove as they would have to fold a large majority of their range due to Brock Wilson being the shortest stack at the final table. Payout implications and ICM should mean your poker strategy adapts.
I discuss the strategy you should be using when you are out of position on low boards (it’s a lot of checking!). These boards connect well with your opponent’s range. I also discuss how you should construct a range to hero call with on the river. It is important to recognize which cards are good to have and which are not.
