View Full Version : Plugging leaks in sng's

08-10-2010, 09:02 PM
I've been reading articles 1 & 2 and comparing key stats of the "5 equally sized sample groups" with my own from the reports tab.

How relevent are most of these stats in the sample groups to a 6max turbo sng player, bearing in mind they are based on "samples from winning 6 max players at 50NL and up"?

I can see leaks in my game based on these sample guides, and my own stats, but i'm uncertain if the leaks are consistent for sng's!

Do any sng players have any advice for using these articles ?

I would say these articles are mostly useless for sng play. It is my opinion (and the opinion of many other elite sngers) that the vast majority of money in SNG play comes from playing the high blind push/fold section of the tournament better than your opponents. Early play should just be tight, and avoid marginal spots. Playing the early part of a sng like a cash game is a pretty terrible idea.
You must remember that in sng's there are many spots that would be +Chipev but - $ev.
hope that answers your question
