What is M-Ratio in Poker?

The M-Ratio is a measurement of a player’s stack in a tournament by assessing how long a player can last before being blinded out.

The M-Ratio is measured by the total cost of each orbit including the blinds and antes. For example, if we have 10,000 chips, the blinds are 100/200 and the ante is 10, and we’re at a 10-handed table, our M-Ratio would be 25. This is calculated as 10,000/(100+200+(10*10)).
