Talking about live and online poker
Nice comeback, Roland. The main takeaway, I think, is the general observation that many SNG players lack experience and patience when playing heads up, hence the loose calls (hands 5 and 6) and passive play even when short stacked (hand 10). One of the reasons I really like the 6-max format is that as soon as the bubble bursts, you're effectively playing a winner-take-all freezeout for the bulk of the prize pool against someone who often doesn't know what they're doing. NG!
Good point about the 6-max format. Have you compared your ROI on 6-max vs 9 man sngs?
I only went back to the beginning of 2009 so the sample is fairly small, especially for the 9-man SNGs, but I was surprised by the numbers, to say the least.$25 6-max Played 32 ROI 47% $13 6-max Played 121 ROI 35%$6.60 6-max Played 32 ROI 69%$33 9-man Played 18 ROI -18%$22 9-man Played 48 ROI -1%Add in the fact that it takes longer to play a 9-man than a 6-max and the difference is even starker.
Wow! Nice stats. You are crushing the 6-max games at all levels. You have shown a winning style at the single tables that I can only dream of! You are obviously doing most things right. Great work!
Well, -18% and -1% aren't so hot, lol. I'll have to go back and try to figure out why my results are so much better at 6-max than a full table.
