SNG - Day 21

What can I say... Back to the drawing board. I was 3-5 in all in race situations as best I can tell. I'll just let the numbers do the talking:

I'll say this Will, you are one dedicated SNG player. All of those at the $50 level?

At least you are in the black for the month. Finish it out strong.

When I get something in my mind, I try my best to do it. It's a character flaw... lol. Congrats G on running good on your challenge. Yep, these are all at the $50 level. Can you give me an honest opinion? Am I just running bad or am I in over my head?

Having NEVER played even one SNG at that level, I can't really give you an educated opinion.

However, based on the results, you would have to think it is a little worse than running bad. The biggest problem I would have with the way you are doing it is the fact that you are playing, what, 4 tables at a time? I would think that would have to detract from your effectiveness.

Perhaps at a lower level, 4-tabling and ABC poker would work better or perhaps only playing 2 at a time at the level you are currently at would help. I just don't see how you can have any read on anyone at the table, playing 4 at once.

Just my opinion and I've been wrong before.

Re: 4 tabling.

There are people who 12-table the $200 level and above. Are they sacrificing a little to do so? Probably. The thing about SnGs is that they are more of a science than most other forms of poker. The proper course of action is usually pretty clear cut, especially later on and it has everything to do with the card, position and stack sizes and little to do with "reads". Reads are nice early on, but it's going to take you a few hands to get one, and by the time you have, you're into push/fold land anyway.

Once you get to the higher levels, I'd guess that you see the same players more often, and at that point you can use their tendencies against them, but you don't need to be watching them at any given moment to do so, you'll already have that info.

In the end, If you're a good SnG player, you win more by playing more tables. If your ROI two-tabling is 15%, you're better off making 10% on four tables.
