SNG single table satellite strategy...what do you think?
I have just started playing single table SNG`s to qualify for the 50000k tourny.
U enter these tournys using your FPP`s.
I was shocked at first as they seemed like freerolls
- ppl pushing with any holding.
I decided that the way to play these games is very little different from normal - pretty much TAG. I did, however, loosen up my play in the first round, playing suited connectors, any pair in any position, any 2 paint, etc, etc - The first round only.
The reason for the post.
I played 5 games and my positions were 4, 4, 6, 3, 2 - only 1st place qualified. (So I didnt )
However, on 3 occassions I went out when I was dominating the other guy pre flop in heads up all ins. My AK v their AQ (flop Q) my AA v their 44 (4 on flop) my AK v their KQ (flop KQQ). The other two hands the guy was ahead of me but I was short stacked. I had to push.
I`m getting to the point, please hang in there!!!
Do you guys feel playing TAG in single table SNG satellites is as good a strategy as any?
Unlike mad rebuys or massive mtt freerolls I personaly feel playing a strong TAG game is the way to do it in this kind of game.
I don`t, however, have a large enough sample. Any ideas or comments appreciated
