A system defined by Dan Harrington in his book Harrington on Holdem. The system defines 5 different zones, catagorized by the ration between the stack size and the blinds, each zone defines a recommended course of action The zones are: Green Zone: M>20 Yellow Zone: M between 10 and 20 Orange Zone: M is 6 to 10 Red Zone: M is 1 to 5 Dead Zone: M<1 The system is best suited for deep stack tournaments and require some adjustments to Sngs and online shallower stack tournaments


I doubled up and moved fro mthe Orange to the yellow zone
