Texas Holdem has copious amounts of variations it can be played, and the “sit and go” is one of the more popular ones. Playing a “sit and go” is easy, but making money consistently, well, that’s more of a challenge than you think. I have put together this series of articles, and it will explain every aspect you need to know to be a profitable “sit and go” player as you play Poker Online.
The early stage of a “sit and go” is very boring, and patience is the name of the game. Let me say that one more time; patience is the name of the game, and if you don’t possess this quality, you need to find another hobby. When you start playing a “sit and go,” you will immediately see your impatient players, and what we call “donkeys,” just throwing their chips away.
The early stages of a “sit and go” are considered the first three blind levels. Just sit back and watch the players, and gather your information. Trust me; you are going to need to know what type of players you’re up against because towards the end of the “sit and go,” you’re going to have to steal blinds and other tactics to win chips.
This is your typical early stage play, and you’re folding every hand, except when you hold a monster hand. Usually, there will be 3 or four players that play just about every hand; observe these players, just in case one of them make it to the middle or late stage of the “sit and go.” These will be the players that pay you off–sit back–wait for the monster hands.
That’s what you do in the early stages of a “sit and go,” you sit and wait to set a weak player up and keep an eye on the good players that are doing the same as you. The good players know how to fold their hands, so you will be able to use this to your advantage, unlike the “donkeys” out there. Donkeys will not fold their hands, so don’t try to steal from them, wait until you have the goods and knock them out.
