So, yea I'm only playing Regular 9 man $1.10 SNGs...
I play on Carbon, and for those of you who don't know you start with t1,500, blinds start at 15/30, and
(not that important to this discussion but useful info nonetheless) SNGs are anonymous, meaning you can't look for a particularly soft table/table select at all.
And these scenarios from my first post are only referring to Low to Mid-blind play. With high blinds/shorter stacks you can't afford to fold TPGK or AK pre, I understand that.
And my last post, sorry for the confusion, I didn't mean blinded-out per-say, rather I can get in a spot in mid blinds where I lose 500 in pfrs and blinds combined, leaving me with t1000 and blinds are 40/80 going up... I get in this
spot and start thinking about the hand I folded to a 3-bet shove during the 20th hand of the game or something...
In my most recent game I got shoved over my normal 3x raise by 77, I called with AKo during low blinds. It is -$EV here in most cases, eh? I mean at best, I'd have to call 47BB to win 53BB, and with AKo its def. not worth it.
Thanks for all the help so far, esp. Magicius (you've helped me on other threads too!) and Poker Orifice for the words of encouragement. I'm sorry if I'm being a little thick, I can be a bit Nitty and weak-tight in cases, I'm working on getting better in that regard too.
