MCU poker tip: All-in, late in a no-limit tournament

It’s very late in a no-limit, percentage-payoff poker tournament. You have a huge stack. You should often raise the first short-stack bettor by moving all-in against two or more short stacks behind you with a medium-strong hand. That’s assuming your opponents are rational and there’s no player with a big stack waiting to act. They simply cannot call without huge hands, because they need to survive and move up a position. Rational opponents will seldom risk calling with their entire stacks, even when holding strong hands with moderate advantages.This tactic should be almost a routine play for you, under those circumstances.
