A Powerful Heads-Up Play

If you play a lot of heads-up poker you’ll know a killer heads-up power play when you see one. I just read a post titled Heads-Up Strategy: The Re-Raise/Shove Routine on Teh Jinx Poker and I’m very much sure it’s a winning strategy. Test it out on the online green felt!

Big Poker Win!

Alright — my first ‘big’ poker win! Just got home from a weekend abroad, and ended up playing poker the whole time… Entered a tournament on friday, and kept playing until SUNDAY! Won the final table of a $200 No Limit Hold’Em Tournament taking down close to $25K!

Unbelievable — my first big win! YAY!!


(btw: I lost $600 on roulette online. I feel sick hehe)

Sit and Go - Make Tournaments Fit into Your Schedule

If you want to play Tournament poker but you can’t commit to a specific time than the SNG (Sit and Go) is for you. By far the most popular is the 10 man variant, but turbos, heads up and 6 man can all be found at most poker sites.

pocket aces baby!A suitable bankroll to play SnG is 25 times the level at which you intend on playing, depending on your skill level.

Like a good story SnGs have a beginning, middle and end.

The current wisdom is to play tight in the early stages. Don’t get involved in preflop all-in situations and don’t play weak hands. You should only look to play hands such as AA-TT and the high suited connectors.

During the middle stages as you get close to the money (called being on the bubble) other players will tighten up. Use this to your advantage and steal the blinds when you have the opportunity. Aggressive play at this stage will help you accumulate chips.

Once you make the money you can really loosen up your starting hand criteria. You should switch your thinking from survival to winning. If you are deep stacked push the little stack around. Don’t be afraid to push all in.

If you intend to play SnGs often, you should definitely keep track of your statistics. This way you can compare how well you are doing at different buy-ins and see if you are a profitable player.
