i went to get yhe 150 vpps and in the 27 seat $3 tables i realy enjoy,i found im getting to the final table ,but i get into betting on hands and bring my stack down and end up being forced to shove on not so strong hands.
this is a league this hand is a little more obvious the straight is there then i bet and have two pair ,now the straight and the flush,am i wrong to go for the Q or 6 or am i chasing the wrong hand, this hand i know i should have folded before the turn but similar hands not so obvious until the river

Sorry, this hand was deleted by its owner

Hmm the first Q6 hand personally im check folding i think on the flop, just way too much of a draw heavy board to continue with a crummy Q........ there will definantly be better spots...and also i really hate the donk bet on the flop.........

And the AQ hand should be a fold imo these are SNG's right? yeah you should probably be tightening up more to utg and utg+1 openers, it lessens ur variance over time.........or ur other option is to 3 bet pre hopefully isoing a smaller stack who comes in and fold to openers 4 bet.......................

if you play SNG quiet a bit i recomend watching videos........

Goodluck

in the Q6 hand, I'd have checked the flop.... however, if I saw the turn for free and hit 2 pair, no problem with the 60 bet to see where you're at in the hand.

AQ hand, that needs to be a fold on the flop. With 6 in the hand, someone has a K and you're behind.
