Default SNG Questions

Hey forum.

Trying out SnG's atm. Where can I get my hands on some good reading material, strategy wise? Any good sites to lean towards? Software I can download?

Also, should I be posting this thread in the Tournament section?

Cheers

You can get a trail of SNGwiz if you google, and it'll help you on your push/fold strategy.

fold to the bubble then go nuts.

that's basically it, anything else is just wanking.

Sweet Ill check the books out and download SNG Wizard. Lol and also stop wanking and fold till the bubble.

I also found this site sitandgoplanet.com, is it worth getting into? It offers a small free course/newsletter over a 4 week period, though I might check it out.

+1, the fold button is your friend. nit = winning in these. So unfortunately also very boring.

Im pretty determined atm, after losing a little bit of money in the last few months, so if its the right thing to do then I can stand a bit of boring. Still a total newb and I realise now that I way over extended myself

10 handed sng, the payouts are 50%. 30%, 20%. when the bubble bursts, 60% of the prize money is paid out. your strategy is to get some of that 60%.

in a big multitable tournament, there is great value in building a big stack early, because with a big stack you can push people around, gamble a little bit, and build a monster stack. with a monster stack you can go deep in the tournament and be in a position to win 50x your buyin or more. this doesn't apply in a sng, because the most you will ever win is 5x your buyin (minus juice) even if you crush everyone and take it down in 20 hands.

say you take a pure math flip on the first hand of two simultaneous sngs. on average you'll win one and lose the other. so in tournament A you now have a double stack, and in tournament B you are out. effectively you are now playing tournament A with a double buyin and would need to make the money just to break even. does this sound like a winning formula?

no, the correct strategy is to be alive in the endgame when the blinds become significant, hopefully with one player left to the money, when you can attack everyone else who is now also thinking about getting through the bubble into the money before they open up their game. all doubling up early really does for you in a sng is give you more of a cushion before you have to start shoving.

on the flip side, you can't let yourself fold away to nothing, you still need to have enough chips relative to the blinds to be able to put pressure on the BB when you do shove. you need to know which side of the shove/fold line you're on, this is where sng wiz comes in.

This

Play super tag until the bubble, then exploit situations where your opponent cant call without AA/KK etc

SnGs can be profitable but they are also boring because for the most part, overly aggressive play is not profitable
