I read this awhile ago I believe in one of magazines and never got around to trying it thought maybe someone would want to.

Ok here is the deal, join a sit & go of at least $10 and cover where your cards would be shown with a sticky note or something so you cant see your cards and don't cheat.

Next basically just play the whole thing without seeing your cards one time. I thought this would be a interesting experiment. It would help you be able to notice your opponents styles since that is what you would be playing by. It might help you in the long run by you would pay more attention to your competition even when you can see your cards.

anyone want to try this and tell us what you think, I cant no way to deposit, but would be interested to see what you think after playing through it.

That's a real interesting idea but how will you know when to call/fold raises when people are all in?

...gonna have to try it; maybe tomorrow or sunday.

well

guess you have to go by what you have been seeing people do, there is also a system called like x-factor or something. But of course you cant use that for this experiment because you have to see your cards. I put screen shot up of poker x-factor there is also a sight with video.

I don't think winning is main objective during this little experiment.

ok I couldn't get screen shot low enough so I will link it, http://www.pokertester.com/SitNGo-Video/
click where it says x-factor playbook. I read in one of my magazines about alot of successful players using this system.

I actually think this is a common playing style online, based of some of the hands I see calling large bets or allins.:D When playing SNG's I normally cover my hole cards & focus on betting patterns, stack sizes, speed of play & whatnot until it is my turn. Hopefully when I get to a casino to play live this will help me watch the other players instead of just playing my cards.
