Playing poker online is a great way to make a stable income and quit your day job if you know how to play right. Most people will deposit $50.00 and just jump immediately into a cash game. Within a few minutes, they will lose all their money on a horrible beat. Sound like a familiar story? Well… it’s a familiar story for me also until I decided to hang up playing cash games and stick to strictly sit n go’s.
Sit n go’s are by far the best way to make money online. For example, playing on Fulltilt Poker or Poker Stars you will find yourself sitting at a poker table with all new players’s to the online community. These players are ready for you to take their money. Let me give you the best poker tip. When playing online poker tournaments, you must remember that patience at the beginning is the key to success. If you are new to sit n go’s let’s go over the break down for the prize pool 918kiss:
1st place = 50% of the total overall prize pool
2nd place = 30% of the total overall prize pool
3rd place = 20% of the total overall prize pool
From these numbers, you can tell that winning first place is a must. There is nothing like the feeling of taking down first place over and over again, but before you take down first place you must understand how to get there. The first thing you must do is have patience in a 9 seater sit n go. On average the first 20 hands will be folded. By folding the first 20 hands, poker maniacs will be knocked out of the picture also. A maniac is a poker player that does not care about their money; they will push all in no matter with any poker hand just because they feel lucky. After the first 20 hands you fold it should be down to around 6 players. Now it is time for you to shine. You need to step up your game and when there is 4 players left your game needs to switch to aggressive. You can’t sit there and play loose with 4 players left trying to hold off for 3rd place.
You must remember that winning third place is just like 1 first place victory. It is extremely important to take down as many blinds as you can in order to secure first place. The key to this is to play aggressive with 4 left. During this time many poker players will fold anything and everything just to make it into the money. You need to take advantage of these scardy cats. Playing aggressive is the best thing possible during this time. I guarantee using this poker tip, you will see a huge increase in profits. My poker ebooks will tell you to play tight throughout the whole tournament…my friend, they are WRONG!! The only way to truly make a profit playing online sit and go’s is to play aggressive with 4 left.
