Iíve played in several jackpots where itís a fast paced SnG with three people and winner takes all. I know itís mostly luck, but are there tips and tricks to win. I play fairly aggressively and get it in good but always end up losing my all-ins pre (I.e AK losing to K10).
I have yet to win a jackpot in spite of my decent SnG playing record. Iím curious if thereís anyone who has consistently won these jackpots.
I already won a 120x in 7 spin go but i dot play very often (a lot of variance and crazy players calling with nothing)
Villain raises 2x from button, hero shoves and villain calls,
Allright, you have the best hand but only 40% chance of winning and its not a hand to fold
** Play mainly shove-fold at 12bb effective stack or less
** Deeper than 12bb effective, min-raise the button and limp the small blind
** Defend wide in the big blind facing min-raises
** Learn something about your opponents as quickly as possible
On the last point, tagging them as "Probable maniac" or "Seems tight" gives you some info to go on when it's close. Even one hand can give you a good indication sometimes -- for example, a player who raises 63s on the button is likely super-loose.
