re: Poker & Sit and go Sitters
i believe i have posted this somewhere before on here....but yes sitting can make u money if used correctly.....when u get low in a satelite tourney 70-80 players and u are in top 5 in chips(preferably chipleader)...say 10 seats get paid a seat in the next tourney...so it is wise to sit out and let small stacks go out....gambling with small stacks can hurt...3 races against scared short stacks can be fatal...rather than let someone else gamble and risk it...when the blinds increase it can really get to a persons head and the make bad moves that turn lucky...eliminate that risk....sometimes ill sit out a complete level of blinds....its appears to me it would be about protecting your stack and capitalizing on your investment....
as for sngs....hell why not sit out after getting a fish to call you early in a sng....let the blinds get up to where the are worth stealing and then you can use your skill and stack to manipulate the table....sittin out isnt not any form of cheating

But they could be really annoying, because someone will raise them when they are on BB, and you wouldn't know the time, when he raises because he really has a hand...
that actually works...ive used that very tactic many many many times....sngs and mtts...sit out and let some playable hands go by because they arent as strong as you wont to show your stack with
