This is a discussion on Spin and Go strategy within the online poker forums, in the Tournament Poker section; tell a good strategy for the game Spin and Go, I will be grateful. And whether or not to play it?
Spin & Go is a lottery. I played with many idiots, who play with low cards, etc 10 2 and they won with me when i had A K. You must often bluff and 3 BET. I always raise with A on hand and when somebody bet me, then I go All-in.
It is a short handed shallow stack game. If you are good at heads up and turbos you should be able to well at these. Aggression is key you got to play a lot of pots and you have to raise a lot of them. You absolutely need to know how to bluff. and you will need to know some maths as situations will occur regularly where you will need to call with a bad hand. You can search short handed and turbo strategies, these should help.
As an Experienced and high volume player of spin & gos
I suggest you to leave these because they are waste of time
you will mostly breakeven at best over good sample size
only way if there is any profit in these is when u hit better multiplier which happens rarely
definately dont play spin and goes unless you feel like a cool down period that doesnt matter, if your trying to grow a bankroll, the fast pace and winner takes all + most of the time you have to win 50% plus stick ahead of the game its just not worth it
yes there are many idiots. Somethimes it is easy money.
HA-HA. Yes but sometimes you will lose many buy-ins when yours bad opponents can bad bit you, and next games you cant win vs yours more qualified opponents. It is poker. everything is relative, like saying Einstein.
good strategy for spin n go - not play in spin n go) really, i'm loosed my bankroll many many in spin. better sit or cash.
about thread i can say, game spin aggresive, and knowledge push - bot and game with short stack.
Lol. Cash, MTT, SNG and sping&go this is different poker. You advice to play Cash becauze you can play cash normal/good . All these disciplines have a different theory of the game. And if you have mastered one of them, it does not mean that others are not worth playing.
I hate the way that people result to 'oh you can't beat them they're awful' just because they're a high variance, hyper turbo game. Spin and Gos are very beatable as the playing standard is low, and the idea that 'you need to win 50% to be profitable is wrong'. Of course you are mostly going to get a 2X multiplier, but if you were to play 1000 you would almost certainty not pay more than 10% rake (the actual take is 8% at the lower levels). I definitely make more $/H per table playing spins than tourneys (but I can't play as many tables).
As for tactics, you need to ba agressive and loose, trying to stray the blinds a lot and taking pots down with a lot of bluffs. Don't be so worried about running into monsters, and remember that people are often not nearly tricky enough. A check on the flop usually means that a bet on the turn will be effective at the lower stakes. Also remember that people are more nitty when a bigger multiplyer hits, which you can take advantage of.
Just play 6 tables at a time 10 hours a day for 50 years. You should get past the variance then. After 5 million games or so it starts to even out.
Seriously though I'm not claiming that these games aren't swingy, of course they are. I've had a lot of annoying spots and downswings of 50BI+ are not uncommon. However, that doesn't mean that they aren't very beatable. As I say, the standard of play is very low and it's not so ridiculously fast that you only shove or fold. I hope you keep going with them, I find them a lot of fun.
too little time to wait for good cards, so you have to risk with mediocre hands. and the risk is always the raffle, a good way to get rid of your money. I Play spin and go just to unwind between long tournaments. The main thing is to bluff less
I play now spin n go ( well i was a fifty reg and then mtt reg ) but best there is that they are really fast to play =).
I can recomend few things .
1st - it needs deep and good Bankroll managment - don't try to play 1$ spng having 5 =)
I also don't recomment to play alot of tables 2-4 is max cos personally I can't look over opponents reads and reads are very important to really make it less lottery and more profit.
There are many very bad players who play slot machine style there, it's important to understand who you are facing - a slot machiner , a monkey , callfish , blufffish or sometimes adequate players))
Understanding who you face is a key for me - cos there are players who all in almost all hands , some are too tight - so you can steal or bluff them - cos game is rather fast best way is to let other 2 guys confront at some hand and see who is who=))
Often you should push quite wide not to let calling stations to get smth and just rob you . But i think that calling opening is very poor game anyway - so i almost never do it unless i got monster in first hands and i see alot of Brazilian / Argentinian/ greek bronezstars around =DDD
well main point ,as I said , identify your opps - and try to face them in +ev allin or situation.
Cos' if even if you call or make opp call you with , like KQ vs K8 and lose - this is considered , for me , as win - you can't rigg the ps rigger =))) but acting smart and doing right actions will lead anyway to good resuls at some distance.
p.s. about the hand ranges - i recomend not to play crap like 48o, 2Ts unless situation is really good like opps has 200 ch and is tight . Also I try not to overplay pokets in strange situations and Aces with low lickers cos yuo easily can be dominated . ( strange i mean - player is always openlimps and then goes allin and you got like 55 or A3o isn't best way to face him i guess =)))
p.p.s. Also some times i feel that i'm really unluck and lose like all hands where i should win 60-80% and tbh that's not best way to continue - tilt can be deadly there =))) ( btw you can also tilt catch opponents in same situations)
So I recomend just to take a rest then and come back fresh
It is the most comfortable period in a game because your strategy is quite simple: to receive a maximum, to lose a minimum. Often the profit is made mini-raises: 2 BB – from long loaf or 2,5 BB – from a small blaynd.
In case of a game in a line item profitable will keep bank modest because ahead not one street.
Doing larger rate out of a line item, we give to the opponent chances of bank much more weakly. At the same time it is worth hoping for bigger quantity of fold, and also the increased size of mid-sized bank.
Be careful from 3-bet: applying them, you are strongly involved in distribution and literally become attached to bank. Its size to a flop can already be more than a half of your stack, and it is dangerous with weak cards.
So, without having A-Q, a central part of one-colored connectors or strong couples (from J-J above), it isn't recommended to be got involved in fight.
Small pocket couples and variegated connectors already not so are suitable for a serious fight because often get under domination. Low potential chances of a victory shall become for you a signal to dumping of cards.
15-18 big blind
3-bt with such stack it doesn't make a sense: you very strongly tie yourself to bank. It is better to leave then directly in all-in: so though fold equty will be 10 times more, you play initiatively and aggressively.
Respectively, exclude any 3 betas, and stake only oll-in. It is worth returning to reraise unless in case of achievement of high level of a game and in case of the corresponding rivals capable to feel your "thin" game.
And time of 3-bet you don't put, and there is nothing to be afraid of 4-bet!
10-15 big blind
Raise with such stack it is necessary to do approximately in 2-2,5 BB, it is no more. Only this way you will have rather comfortable conditions for continuation of a draw of a hand on a postflopa: a risk ratio to possible benefit.
If, being on a small blind, long loaf hangs in folds, then all-in it can be the profitable decision – you give to the rival maximum fold equity. But when you on a big blind remain to play with long loaf in a heads up, it is better to look flop (whenever possible and in case of a weak hand).
Less than 10 big blind
If only you not the expert Spin, it is worth excluding from your standard actions a call and raise. Leave the check (if you are on a big blind), all-in and fold
The reason besides in a strong binding to bank: in a case, for example, even a raise or a cbet in 2 BB in case of the opponent's allin at you not enough chances of bank will be frequent to equalize a rate.
As you can see, the main questions are connected actually with technical and mathematical reasons for a betsize in spin
Hi bro.Spin and go is a good tournament for easy and fast money.All you have to do is to win 2 opponents so play agre.A 10 A j should be played like aces.Agressive play is the best strategy i believe !Good luck mate
I have only played a few of these because I can not grasp the idea of three players only getting 2 buyins for winning these. Its already a losing proposal and then you factor in the hyper play of it.
Decided to only play these in the future to gain entry into a freeroll.
Well, let´s see:
1. Use your position to extract value.
2. Open more hands, like the small ball strategy. Trying to hit more the game pos-flop. Remember that you´re playing against two more players. AQ and AK are both strong hands, but the variance is sufficiently to realize the equity.
3. And a good proven tactic : players in small awards are more loose, so play more tight in this occasions, like 2x. Other situations, like 2x + , you have to play more aggressive, doing what most of the players don´t do.
Spin and goes is a very weird format and needs very specific approach because its not poker that much as maths. You need to play post flop and you need to play a lot during the first 3lvls.
You also go to push shove situation really fast and here is where maths come. You need an ICMizer to deeply understand what's going on.
You need to have 35% ITM over 500 tourneys to claim you are profitable.
Variance is really high... You need backers or at least 200bi bankroll to play spins for living. I suggest you to find some backing groups online. I've been to 2 groups so far and I've made some money. I wouldn't like to advertise then (I don't really know the forum restrictions) but you can google and find them easily. They will give you training materials and fixed charts about what to do.
Remember.. spins rely on volume, it's the flesh and bones of the long run maths and specific moves.
And I forgot to mention that you will find yourself to make significant amount of money through rake back... Thus why you need to make volume (at least 70 games per day). In best scenario you get 10-15% ROI unless you hit something big.
You have to be over aggressive with spin an goes , steal the blinds , bluff on position ,play more loose than you would normaly do, dont let yourself blind out .
Any Ax is good ,especially when blinds go up , When heads up , if you have the small stack , the less chips you have the wider range you shove to press your opponent .
I cannot see profit on the long run , except if you hit and win the jackpot or one big multipler after the other , only good for rake , or else bad for your bankroll , at least for mine it was so I stopped it
I would say limp from small blind as a trap with very strong hand most bb will raise you can re or all in depending on bb bet sizing.Also since its 1-3 chance of winning you need to bust 1 player or let one player be busted to better your odds heads up.So being aggressive will help however I find be very sneaky abetter option for winning in the long run.
