I like it when I am planning to write an article, and a good real world example that fits right into the article lands in my lap.
I had finished my second article in my Big Blind Math series, and was preparing to work on the third article covering a stack from 16 to 30 big blinds. I was giving the article some thought while playing my normal Tuesday night tournament at Running Aces, when I was given a perfect opportunity to play a hand that would illustrate one of the points in my newest article.
I had 16 big blinds left, and was on the small blind. Everyone folded to the button, who limped in. He was a weak player and was unlikely to be limping as a trap. Since it was likely I could pick up two and a half big blinds plus the antes with a shove, I looked down at 87 offsuit and raised all in. Both my opponents folded and I had squeezed successfully.
