.. more days ..
Rebuilding the roll for the umpteenth time I have been delving into SNGs. I think these are really the fastest way to build up a roll from scratch. I never really thought I would like 6-Max SNGs. I am not a short table player. I do not like two places paying. However I found them to be interesting.
Number Played: 4
I dunno.. I have never been good at math. Anyway.. they seemed like pretty good games. I liked that they were quick. I liked that in one of them 3-people went out on the first hand. I liked the fact that first place in a 6-MAX pays just about the same as first place in a full table.
I like the fact that the second place I took was when I went all in A9 vs A5 HU. I have no idea what happened with the 5th place finish.. but I assume I will have some amount of out of the money finishes. I also like the fact that the blinds did not increase very fast but the monkeys thought they had to move quickly. I think people were patient in only one of these things. In that one I did a lot of stealing of blinds which was good because I lost a HUGE pot when my AT was creamed by 9To. Ouch. AT least the fucker was short. I was able to regain my dominant chip lead and bust that guy in second.
I have not given up on the multi-table SNGs. I think those are worthwhile also.. but I may play 3-4 6-MAX a night and then if I do well do a multi. See if I can keep a good run going. I was also told that the LHE SNGs were pretty sweet and I need to give those a shot. Guys like SNG Machine and Poker Enthusiast seem to do well with these so why not.
I actually had Fastpitch watching me the other night which was fun. It is always nice to get some feedback on how you played a game.
