SNG Challenge- Race to 100
I haven't written about my challenge to win 100 sit and go tournaments in a calendar year in quite a while, but that doesn't mean I stopped playing them.
As I mentioned in an earlier post, I've stuck with low buy in, turbo tourneys with a 500 chip starting stack. As you can imagine, the poker is not of a high quality and I had to make a few adjustments in order to beat the game on a consistent basis.
One of the hardest adjustments to make was limping big hands pre-flop. It catches up with me occasionally, but it has proven to be a very profitable strategy at this level. Opponents consistently overplay their top pair hands and I have learned that playing a trapping game is definitely the way to go.
Along with many other players, I had to move from the Bovada site to Ignition late this summer, which slowed me down for a week or two. The skins are the same on both, but the new site seems to work much smoother on my computer.
With a little under two months left, I'm currently sitting on 96 wins, so I'm feeling confident I will be able to meet and exceed 100 wins. I'll post if or when I hit the century mark.
Till next time, win the flips.
