i have left sng for a month before to play more scheduled games
i found that i like to play more hands like small pair n sc out of pos n in pos
try to bluff more n outplay opponents coz the stack r deep
now i dont have much time so i bk to play sng, n i found that the results slipped coz i played more hands, and the stack just not allow, i change bk to my past nitty style n results soars immediately
is playing nitty the only way to win sng?
and, in terms of learning postflop skills n hand reading abilities, is it better to play more schedule n deep stack games? though i still love sng
Nitty in the early levels, aggressive in the higher blinds/bubble. There's still plenty of room for postflop and hand-reading in SNGs, but you're right that you can bluff more in MTTs when deeper. Most don't 3bet light in SNGs, with good reason.
Both are fun to me, so I mix a couple MTTs in here and there during SNG sessions. Specialize in one, but play both, I say. Have fun.
Dude, SnGs are high variance, the results didn't change immediately because you tightened up, they did because you got lucky.
Or did you try to be loose for like 5k games and then tighten up for the next 5k?
Playing nitty early on is generally fine and it's a necessity when mass multitabling anyway, as long as you don't make a habit of it and forget widening your range when it's appropriate. To be successful you have to play exploitive, like always in poker.
If your postflop skills and hand reading abilities are great, you're wasting your time playing games which mostly consist of push/fold decisions. Play cash and make more money with less risk -.-
