SnG Thoughts

It's funny how different people have different 'specialties' in poker. Personally, I very rarely play no limit ring games. I fancy myself as a limit poker player, and when I play limit I do well. Other people will watch me play and what seems mechanical to me now, at times seems crazy to them. But that's limit poker and that's not what I'm talking about.

Very rarely do I play limit Sit & Gos. When I play SnGs, I play No Limit. It might be strange at first, but the way I see it is that it's simular to limit because you have a limited stop lose, with a higher win ratio (if you play well.)

SnGs are a strange highbred of poker. When you sit down you know how much you can lose, but you aren't sure how much you can win. Normally in poker you can look at a table, and depending on who is sitting at it, you can take a guess at how good the table is (how much you can win), but it's much more difficult to analyse how much you could lose.

I'm good at SnGs, I place ITM more often than not, I've had days where I will always place in the money. I multitable SnGs and I can normally place in 2/3s or higher when playing three SnGs at a time. This leads me to my next point.

Full Tilt Poker is my favorite site to play on. PartyPoker is my least favorite. However, there is a certain draw at PartyPoker that I can't pass up, and that is the Step Tournaments. In my opinion, the Step Tournaments are the best thing to happen to poker since the check was invented. The problem is that I keep getting bumped around in steps and can't seem to finally get a win under my belt. I don't have much invested, I just keep moving up, then getting bumped back down. It's a great structure for my play. My normal procedure is to get a SnG going on FTP, then wait for one or two people to get knocked out, then start a step tourney on PP (depending on what freeroll I have), get a couple more people knocked out of the FTP one and start another FTP SnG at the same time. As each tourney ends, rinse, wring, repeat.

With some practice you can know what's going on in each tourney. It's a lot of window flipping, but it's a great work out for the mind.

Any comments would be great, and I would love if FTP would follow suit and offer 'Step' tournaments.

I like your thinking as far as sit n go's are concerned. I also like to play at FullTilt quite frequently. They have solid tournament structures you can read some reviews at

EGTY trading volume is beginning to surge with landslide Announcement.
The value of this Stock appears poised for growth! This one will not

Keep Reading!!!!


-Energy and Asset Technology, Inc. (EGTY) owns a global license to market
the genetically enhanced Global Cedar growth trees, with plans to
REVOLUTIONIZE the forest-timber industry.

These newly enhanced Global Cedar trees require only 9-12 years of growth before they can
be harvested for lumber, whereas worldwide growth time for lumber is 30-50 years.

Other than growing at an astonishing rate, the Global Cedar has a number of other benefits.
Its natural elements make it resistant to termites, and the lack of oils and sap found in the wood
make it resistant to forest fire, ensuring higher returns on investments.

the wood is very lightweight and strong, lighter than Poplar and over twice
as strong as Balsa, which makes it great for construction. It also has
the unique ability to regrow itself from the stump, minimizing the land and
time to replant and develop new root systems.

Based on current resources and agreements, EGTY projects revenues of $140 Million
with an approximate profit margin of 40% for each 9-year cycle. With anticipated
growth, EGTY is expected to challenge Deltic Timber Corp. during its initial 9-year cycle.

Deltic Timber Corp. currently trades at over $38.00 a share with about $153 Million in revenues.
As the reputation and demand for the Global Cedar tree continues to grow around the world
EGTY believes additional multi-million dollar agreements will be forthcoming. The Global Cedar nursery has produced
about 100,000 infant plants and is developing a production growth target of 250,000 infant plants per month.

Energy and Asset Technology is currently in negotiations with land and business owners in New Zealand,
Greece and Malaysia regarding the purchase of their popular and profitable fast growing infant tree plants.
Inquiries from the governments of Brazil and Ecuador are also being evaluated.
