Re: SNGWiz Noob question - warnings

The warning symbol means that it is a close decision based on the default opponent hand ranges.

The sngwiz.com web site has a forum for these types of questions.

SNG Wizard, update, FTP Compliance

SNG Wizard was just updated today to include an update that says "Full Tilt Compliance: Instead of shutting down when it detects that the Full Tilt client application is running, the Wizard disables the new game (manual entry) feature."

Just so everyone knows here is an email I got from FTP about the issue:

Quote:
Hello, Ian.

PokerTracker 3, Tourney Manager and Holdem Manager are all acceptable for use with Full Tilt Poker, as long as they contain only hand histories from hands in which you have participated. Full Tilt Shortcuts, a suite of AHK scripts, is also acceptable for use.

Due to its ability to offer decision making assistance, Sit 'n Go Wizard is prohibited from use while the Full Tilt Poker software is running.

We trust this clarifies the situation for you. Please let us know if we can be of further assistance.

Sincerely,

Mike M
Operations Manager
Full Tilt Poker Support
Probably in your best interest to make sure SNG Wizard is completely closed when the client is running. I don't know why this new change was made for SNG Wizard's Full Tilt Compliance. Maybe FTP will see that this is now a current feature of SNG Wiz and change their stance on the software, but I wouldn't count on it.

Re: SNG Wizard, update, FTP Compliance

To be honest it's not SNGW's job to comply with full tilt's policy. The user has the decision to shut down SNG wizard before they start playing on full tilt. I see nothing wrong with leaving the decision up to the user.

I like the move. It's always annoyed me that I've got SNGW up, going through a quiz or a set of tournies, and I want to fire up the stars lobby to play some cash, or see what games are running, or just check the network connection to the server. Then wiz goes and shuts down half way through a revision session. I hope wiz make the same change to the stars shutdown "feature"

Re: SNG Wizard, update, FTP Compliance

I'm not suggesting that it's the responsibility of SNG Wiz developers to police and enforce FTP's rules. I posted this thread to warn people that it is still against FTP's rules to have SNG Wiz running while the FTP client is running, despite new update to SNG Wiz appearing to suggest otherwise.

Re: How to get sng wizard free?

Usually you have to sign up on a site through an affiliate link. You can usually get something else for free instead, so it's not really free.

Using cracked poker software is a very bad idea.

Re: How to get sng wizard free?

here's how i got it for free (sort of). Download the demo. Its good for 30 days and its the full version. Work with the quiz and review your hh's. Easily improve you game to more than cover than cost of the software. Pay for the software. And honestly if you work with it for 30 days and don't easily pay for it, then its probably not worth buying for you.

Good advice. Sng Wizard is clearly worth it, even for a small stakes player.

What Edge to set SNG Wiz to?

I was just wondering if some fellow SNG grinders could give me some advice on what to set my edge to on SNG wiz when I review my sessions. I was just looking over a Super Turbo where it told me to fold AKs to a raise 5handed and i was like, that can't be right. I looked at it was +EV, but it had my edge for that hand set to like .13 and it was only +.07

Any words of advice on what to set it to and how to change it?

Re: What Edge to set SNG Wiz to?

Depending on buy in and what kind of edge you think that you have. Some people may argue that in earlier stages of sng's passing on smaller edge spots may be profitable because of your skill edge. Others may argue that it is never good to pass on +EV spots.

Its all about stack sizes and position. But ya i think a .07 edge 5 handed with AK is a little bit too much to pass on.

Re: What Edge to set SNG Wiz to?

set your edge multiplier to 0 and learn where your break-even points are. once you know that, then you can adjust mentally in-game based on how much of an edge you think you want.

He would most likely get his thread locked if he posted this in the STT forum (any post that isn't a strategy post seems to get insta-locked nowadays... not sure why).

As for you question, then 0.07% isn't actually that much to pass up on (especially if it's a call which will bust/cripple you if you lose). When SNGWiz first came out it would sometimes try to use a massive "silly" edge like 0.9% (which you should basically never pass up on), but passing up on anything below 0.1% isn't really gonna make a huge difference either way tbo.

One other thing to check is that you aren't just taking the SNGWiz default ranges as gospel and that is why it's telling you to fold AKo here. I know he has recently tried to reinstate his "empirical modeling" ranges which might be too tight for real purposes (hence why it could be telling you to fold AK here). It's essential to alter the ranges to something you yourself think is sensible and then run SNGWiz using them (or else the old computer saying: "garbage in garbage out" stands true...).

When it comes to choosing an edge yourself (and not just using whatever SNGWiz says) then you want to try to consider stuff like:

A) If I bust here, how much future equity gains am I giving up? If it's a table full of loose donks then quite alot probably. If it's a table full of aggressive regs then probably not that much.

B) How likely am I gonna be able to use a big stack to pwn these players? If it's a table full of loose donks then probably not that much. If it's a table full of tight regs then it could make a big stack worth quite alot more than ICM says.

C) How sure of my opponent's ranges can I be? If you are pushing with lots of fold equity then this doesn't matter so much as most times you won't be called. On the other hand if you are calling (especially if you will bust when you lose) then you need to be very sure of your ranges to take a tiny edge. Also, since the ICM function is non-linear you also need to realize that running SNGWiz with a call range of "top 20%" won't give the same results as the average of "top 10%" and "top 30%", and against "random" players you are most often picking a range that is representative of the average you expect to face rather than what the particular player will call with.

D) etc, etc, etc (search the STT forum for the term "edge" and you'll find lots of good posts on it).

After considering each of the important factors then you can then run SNGWiz with an edge of zero and then decide yourself if you think the push is worth taking or not.
