Hello. Who ever played spin & go on pokerstars, have you ever noticed that cards are dealt between three players with unequal odds throughout the game. Someone alone may not come across a normal cards at all, but this happens to me too often. This factor influences too much to start a serious game of earning there. What do you think, is it possible to play a good plus in Spin & Go ???
If you are playing an aggressive position game and you soon find out about your opponents ’abilities then maybe you can do it plus.
It’s just like any other poker game, if you adapt better than the others with a little luck you’ll be better off with them I think.
I play them but i must admit it is a lot like bingo. Yesterday i won a 100x tho and its also nice 2nd and 3rd also get a prize in the big ones. The variance is just to high for me to play them often. There are spin and go specialists out there who only play these so it definatly is possible to win on the long run.
I sometimes manage to climb the stairs of spin and go.But mostly my cards are bits(.This is an exciting discipline based on sheer luck.Or so it seems to me.To get involved in such tournaments is definitely not worth it is my opinion.
When Spin n Gos first came out, professional poker players generally mourned about it and said, the format could not be beat. However some then went on and grinded a lot of them proving, that this was wrong. Presumably even this game format has matured over time, but it would be weird, if at least the lowest stakes were not still beatable, when the format has such a huge appeal to recreational players.
That being said its not a format, that has ever really appealed to me. Because they are so fast, you end up paying a lot of rake per hour, and its not easy to find huge skill edges, when you only start with 25 or 30BB, and blinds then also go up every 3 minutes. Plus if you grind these for profit you also have to overcome the extra variance added by the fact, that some of the price money goes into the largest multipliers, that you will likely never see.
So for me personally I would rather play something else. However I certainly dont think, these games are rigged, as OP seem to assume. This is just a silly idea, which we see repeated again and again by people looking for external reasons, why they dont win in poker.
