TOURNAMENT TIPS

Sit and Go (SNG) Poker Tournament

 

A Sit and Go (SNG) Poker Tournament is a single table mini online poker tournament which has no scheduled time and starts when the necessary number of players have registered. Though single table SNG’s which seat 9 or 10 are the norm but now many online poker sites also offer multi table SNG’s. Online poker players in India prefer such tourneys to the multi table and more time consuming tournament formats.

Sit and go’s are perfect for beginners to play with real cash and get tournament exposure. All you have to do to play is give the buy in amount and you will be given pre-fixed chips to play with. The play starts and the person who’s chips finish gets eliminated. The final three players finish in the money and general payout ratios in 9/10 player SNG’s are 50/30/20 percent. Some poker sites also offer 6 player SNGs where the last two to survive get to share in a 60/40 or 70/30 ratio.

The blinds in an SNG go up every ten minutes. While some poker rooms charge a fixed sum for entering the tourney; there are others that are free. The most common types of SNG are regular, re-buy, double or Nothing, shootout, fifty fifty, heads up etc. But the most commonly played variant in online poker in India is the regular style with no re-buys.

Poker strategy for SNG’s:

  • Table dynamics: Understanding the psyche of poker players is very important in the game of poker. But understanding it in SNG tournaments is even more important. With this format being smaller and offering poker tournament exposure to many, many new players are found here. Thus always watch out for playing against the amateurs who will be mostly loose aggressive players playing a lot of hands. Land them in a solid hand and they will pay up a lot.
  • Observe: the early stages of a SNG are generally very easy. Just control yourself as others go crazy in pots and sit back. This is that time when a good poker player can observe and make notes to be followed in the latter stages. Just play very tightly and observe other players gameplay in the initial stages. This will really pay out in the late stages of a poker tournament.
  • Watch out for the bubble: Beware of the bubble calls. As the bubble stage comes where everyone else will cash, most players become subdued whilst some show extra aggression in an attempt to steal pots. Be wary of these times in the game of poker.
  • Manage your bankroll: Sometimes in the middle stages of the tournament when ante comes into play and blinds are going up, manage your bankroll well. If you are below table average then it is time to take chances and press the accelerator.

I am a late entrant into poker world and at 43 years of age, double the age of a lot of players on the tourney circuit. I am a Private Equity Fund Manager and poker is a passion for me!! I have now been playing for over 4 years now - both cash and tournament games. My background in investing made me adapt to the game fast. The approach of studying the game through books, courses (Nick Petrangelo, raiseyouredge) online videos and bit of coaching from Prabhat Mukherjea.. all played a part in preparing me for this. This win is a testimony that poker is not gambling and hard work pays off.
