This Videos Great Because

In this Live Training Video Chris "19honu62" takes you through some $7 buy in Single Table SNG's discussing strategies to beat the $7 level.

The timing for this contest is perfect for me, I had just decided yesterday to get back to watching videos as I have been really lazy of late and so this morning was looking for videos that focused on single table tourney's. Although I do not agree with everything Chris had to say, I do really like his teaching style and will go back and look at all the rest of his series once I am done with this blog.  

The part I like the most was when he talked about changing your opening bet sizing depending on the level you are at, In thinking about it this really makes a lot of sense and is something I will try to implement as part of my game. I found that in these tournies the first level people will call your opening bets light and are willing to gamble in order to build a stack so it makes a lot of sense to make the price of seeing the flop more expensive.

He also mentioned the importance of getting reads on players which even though I have a HUD I have been not always using it to it's full potential. Since purchasing Tournament Indicator I have been relying more on pot odds and win percentages and ignoring steal opportunities. So will have to fix this leak asap.

That's all for now, thanks for reading and make it a great day on and off the felts...
