re: Poker & Big Blinds Poker Quiz
yes Sir, no place better to get the Final Table feel than 18-27-45 player
S&G's Freeplay chips @ 10,500 is where is gets a bit more mature in a 'real' buy-in scenario (play chips are precious! LOL)
The best practice for nothing IMO, or on PokerStars
at least they have a Freeplay HU buy-in for 1050 chips..but is more like a 16 level shoot-out
since the starting stacks are equal to begin each round.
It is good practice playing from the short stack HU and the Big stack.
As the dynamic and mental aspects of each end are the strategy.
Short stacked is Raise to steal if BB is TAG, or Limp in when PassiveTight
and trap check, and check raise...when short stacked with TPTK, Set or nut flush. <-- be the calling station w/the nuts and POUND the RIVER!
Big Stack I'd say fold marginal hands on the button and Raise 4X BB to steal or playing Paint connectors and suited.
Big stack in BB call 1x raises w /ATC or fold any garbage if over 2x BB raise.
BB w/ Top rate PP's check or flat call any raise, or Shove to steal.
(Depending on opponent)
~that's only from my experiences in S&G's (w/27-45 players)~
