The skill of playing with a short stack is key in the strategy of Spin & Go. The huge mistake inexperienced players make in this format is waiting for the bonus hand and passive play on the first levels of the blinds.
In Spin & Go it is impossible to play in a tight style.
You should understand that you have only 25 big blinds on the stack, and the levels are growing every 3 minutes. Therefore, when you wait for a strong starting hand, it may be too late and you will only have 2-3 big blinds on the stack. Of course, this does not mean that you should open 100% of your range, but the scope of your discovery should be wide enough. Especially this applies to the button and styles from the small blind.
Tough game spin n go variance is huge most of the time spinning 2x so as 3 player game even winning 1 out of every 3 games you can run up losses very fast as each game only lasts couple of minutes.
Can also win money very fast if catching cards.
Real gamble of a game where 3 outers win a lot and blinds force play as shortstacked.
But that shiny 12000x one in a million prize inevitably draws in the players
very easy to get stuck though.
