I play SNG's because i am just terrible at ring games and i can profit from playing SNGs.
I find myself in pots that i know the villan will bet and the pot will get very big and i will have to put in all my chips to 1/2 of my chips.
This is pretty easy, big hands = big pots. If you dont have a hand good enough to take the heat stop calling, try raise or fold instead, you wont find yourself in as many marginal situations.
It is easy when you have a good hand you call/raise, bad hand you fold.
There ya go.
but what i cant seem to do is when i have top pair with a weak kicker and rainbow board how do i keep the pot small incase villian has overpair or 2 pair or somthing like that.
~Theere is different lines you can take, bet/fold, bet/call, check/fold etc. You DO NOT need to play a big pot if you dont want to
you can do deffensive bets but i usually just get re raised and the pot gets even bigger.
All help is appreciated. Bulldog
