To enter the game by calling the big blind pre-flop, as opposed to raising. M is from Dan Harrington's tournament books. It refers, essentially, to how many orbits you have before you are blinded out. Take the pot before the cards are dealt (the two blinds plus all antes), and figure the ratio of that to your chip stack. If blinds are 200-400 and antes are 50 at a 10-player table, there is 1100 in the pot before the cards are dealt. If you have 5000 chips, your M is just under 5. The point is that your folding equity -- the chance of everyone folding when you go all-in -- is closely related to the ratio of your stack to the pot. For example, if you wait until you only have 1500 chips with the above situation, you have almost no chance of winning the blinds and antes, unchallenged. The big blind would only have to call 900 more for a pot of 2600, so he's getting almost 3 to 1 odds.
