M-ratio

Comments Off

In no-limit or pot-limit poker, a player’s M-ratio (also called “M number”, “M factor” or just “M”) is a measure of the the size of your chip-stack in relation to the blinds and antes. In simple terms, the M-ratio tells you how many hands you can survive in an multi table tournament without playing a hand.. A high M means the player can afford to wait a number of rounds before making a move.

A player with a low M must act soon or be weakened by the inability to force other players to fold with aggressive raises.
