I Used to frequent these games, And I can tell you, the swings are dramatic. I have lost 15 games in a row before, but also I have won 3 4 in a row as well.
You just have to have a solid shove/fold strat. and watch your tables. You will figure out who is going to call you light, and who is too tight.
Shove more on the tight players, fold more ( even some premiums ) vs light callers, because the biggest point of the game is survival rather than show down value.
When you are card dead ( happens all too often ) you need to learn to pick spots to shove. Not to bluff, but just to steal. This is when you look for your tight players, if you shove on a guy who calls and shoves light, he will call your T7o with Q9s because it looks pretty, and you are already behind.
Vs. a tight player, if he calls you, your screwed but your play was + EV in the long hall.
You def need a huge roll for this, and can not become result oriented. This game you will lost to crap, win with crap, lost with monsters, and of course win with monsters.
The best way to treat these games is by knowing who to steal the blinds from, because THIS is the biggest key to the game. everyone is short, so eveyone is shoving lighter, thus others should be calling lighter.
Anyone have any specific questions let me know, I had a thread going on my own ST gaming, but my hud is glitching for Tourneys right now
