Now, i would be remiss if i weren't to mention a couple of reasons why I was able to play so well at the end, huh? So here they are as best as i can figure out:
1. I KNEW my stuff was on the line; Nothing like a deadline to sharpen up the ol' acuities !
2. As some of you may know, i am taking some private(group) lessons from 19honu62 & a point he made on Saturday about risk/reward played heavily in my 1st on Sunday. Without that point being fresh in my ancient, unmalleable grey matter, another 35th or so would have been recorded.
3. If you really want to see the main reason i am able to beat these SnGs, Pay heed to these starting hands & betting structure by Spacegravy which Cowboy turned me on to:
-------------------------------------------
Blinds 10-20
Early (EP) rze (4x) 99-AA & AJs-AK > Limp 22-88
Middle (MP)rze (4x) 66-AA & ATs-AK >Limp 22-55
Late (LP) rze(3x) 22-AA & A9s-AK
---------------------------------------------------------
15-30 BLINDS
EP(3X) rze88-AA & AJs-AK >Limp22-77
MP(3X) rze66-AA & AJs-AK >Limp22-77
LP(2.5X)rze22-AA &A9s-AK
----------------------------------------------------------
25-50 BLINDS
EP (3X)rze77-AA & AJs-AK fold 22-66
MP(2.5X)rze66-AA & AJs-AK fold 22-55
LP (2.3X)rze22-A9s-AK
----------------------------------------------------------
50-100
EP (3X)rze77-AA & AJs-AK fold 22-66
MP(2.5X)rze66-AA & AJs-AK fold 22-55
LP (2.3X)rze22-A9s-AK
-------------------------------
75-100
EP(2.5X)
MP(2.2X)
LP(2X)
------------
100-200
EP(2.2X)
MP(2X)
LP(2X)
---------
Sleepy note*
NOW, spacegravy says to push w 20BBs or less but i have not found the strength of character to adhere to this section completely although i do with 10-13BBs
----------------------------------------------
w 20BBs or Less:
if preflop raiser, push hand we want to play
IF I or others have 10 BBs or less, Auto Push
After the Antes Kick In, More Agg Play
-------------------------------------------------
10BBs or Less (9 man Table)
Shove Range(LP)looser(RP)tighter
W 10 BBs
UTG=AJo+KQs+66+
MP =A9s+KQo,QJs+44+
LP =A2s+A5o+K8s+K9o+Q9s+QTo+JTo+T9s+98s+87s
W 5BBs
UTG=A2o=K5s-K8o+Q6s-Q8o+J7s-J8o+T7s-T8o+T9o,98o87s,76s,65s
MP=A2o+K3s-K6o+Q4s-Q6o+J5s-J8o+T6s-T8p,T9o+87o+76s,65s,54s
LP = Q4o or better
================
I hope this chart is as useful to you as it is 4 me.
