In the first part of 2008 you were playing a super standard/conventional SNG strategy and you were pretty much flat, I recall having notes on you and I made some unconventional moves because I was sure you were folding a lot given the massive multitabling, then you changed strategy.
Did you notice that some regs were taking advantage or you made some changes in your game?
Some players believe that 114s are the toughest games in the high stakes scenario because many reach that level therefore is plenty of good regs, some of them get burned due to variance and they will never step up while whoever goes up tend to play all the other high stakes games profiting from all the random fish.
What do you think?
At the beginning of last year I was trying to play more tables. I think I was averaging about 22-24. It's hard to worry about small pots when you have that many going. My results definitely suffered though. After a few months I went down to averaging maybe 18-20 and while that still seems like a lot it really does affect how much time you have to play hands quite a bit. I don't really want to discuss my strategy all that much for obvious reasons though. And yeah I noticed a few regs were taking advantage so I adjusted a bit.
I don't know that 114s are the toughest but they're definitely not easy. The difference between the 114s though and the higher games is the level of aggression in the late game. The 300s and 500s are just way more aggressive in that people just don't miss spots to shove, while in the 114s I still see missed shoves by some otherwise good regs.
The bigger games are definitely not full of random fish though. Each game at the 500 or higher level might have a couple really bad players but the rest of the field will usually be top notch players. However the bad players in the 500s and 1ks can sometimes be worse than the bad players in the 114s.
