Razz-aments

For people who are used to playing no limit hold em, being short-stacked in limit tournaments is a source of frustration. You don’t have a push-or-fold zone. Towards the end of the tournament, almost everyone has relatively shallow stacks. Five times the big bet may be the average stack. If you’re patient, you gain a lot of value from people who become desparate and push weak hands. This isn’t like no limit, where you are losing a lot of fold equity if you let blinds and antes dwindle your stack. In razz, you can and should let the antes and bring-ins cut your already shallow stack in half if you are getting nothing playable.
