Sit-n-Go Poker Strategy

Undefined

Sit-n-Go tournaments provide an alternative style of tournament play, great for new and low bankroll players. The cost of entry is usually minimal, and the tournament ‘goes’ when enough players ‘sit’ to make it happen. Because the timeline of sit-n-go tournaments is much shorter than regular tournament play, players have to adjust their strategies accordingly. The whole thing can be done and dusted in an hour or so, so it pays to have a clear plan in mind before you get things underway.

Cash Games Strategy

Undefined

Cash games require their own approach if you’re to succeed. There’s no use hitting a cash game with your standard tournament philosophy - it’s more to do with seizing your opportunities, and exploiting your margin for profit as you play through each hand. Accepting you will incur some losses along the way, you need to play a percentages based game, where your focus is on taking easy profits and being aggressive on strong hands.

With that in mind, here are a few strategies you can keep close to hand for maximising your return in poker cash games.

Omaha Hold'em

For Texas Hold’em players, the Omaha variant feels close to home. Many of the same rules and format are shared across both game types, which form the opening 1-2 of HORSE and similar multi-variant games. Each player is dealt four hole cards, as opposed to two in Texas Hold’em, before the betting pattern and community cards follow the Texas Hold’em format identically. The aim is to make the best five card hand from the cards available, using any two hole cards and any 3 community cards.
