Hi Henry appreciate the vid. You mention in quite a few of your videos bb defence ranges that are rake dependant. Are these ranges deducible only on programs such as PIO or are there some approximations and general rules to construct any other way? Cheers.

FT of a 3.30 donkament on stars and I’m 2/6 remaining with 60bbs the guy in 3rd has 53bbs and is playing extremely aggro with decent hands (I’ve noted him to 3bj 50bb w chip lead behind) but at a fair frequency considering ICM, I think we saw AQo at showdown once in a similar scenario.
I open JJ utg and he 3 bet jams. I folded considering ICM and the fact that I am 50-70% favourite vs a range of Ax and I am not sure whether he plays bigger pp like this or not.
Obviously I am not out of the tournament if I lose and I was more comfortable taking the lower variance route, but poker ain’t about what makes you comfortable it’s about what makes you the most money!
I am roughly aware of the disparity between cEV and $EV in these spots, but this situation exposed my lack of knowledge of the extent to this disparity. I basically had to guess at the decision in game and would like to be able to study it more thoroughly.
Important details: At the time there were 3 shorter stacks with 12, 20 & 23 bbs respectively. If I called and won I would be an overwhelming chip leader, c/l had 66bb.
Payouts were as follows:
I am still doubting whether it was a correct fold and roughly what is our calling range in this spot? What is the best way to study these spots and what tools can I use?

FT Bubble of $0.99 FRENZY R&A on 888. Villain has reggy stats over 41 hands (23/10/7)(VP/PR/3b). Tournament ahsa turbo structure
Payouts are as such.
I have ~average stack, there is a 3bb stack i am roughly 7/10.
Villain opens 3x UTG 17bb. Folds round to hero in the BB with 12bb.
What is your re-jam range in this spot?
2nd spot is a calling range spot in a $5 8max on 888 also.
villain (36/5/0) over 39 hands jams 14bb from CO.
folds to us in BB with 14bb also (1/2 avg stack and we're about 11/14) no significant shortstacks (lowest ~10bb)
What is our calling range?

Shove pre in my experience vs this type of fish is definitely best. It's super unbalanced but we should just be exploiting these guys as much as possible, such a huge +EV situation when he calls with a lot worse. Playing $1 snap r+a on 888 I see people regularly call off with as bad as 78s

I've noticed when watching high stakes FTs that the really good players are 3bj over 50bb eff in certain spots. The two examples I can think of are Apotheosis in 25k SCOOP.
Is this because Apotheosis doesn't have a small 3bet range due to ICM? My thinking was have small3b range of JJ+/AK balancing with maybe with some hands too weak to flat but with good removal, i.e. A4o and A5o.
The second one I found on a high stakes MTT board and could see any good reason for this, especially with 22.
First post so apologies if this should go somewhere else!
