re: Unofficial Stars 18-man SNG turbo Thread

Do any of you have the same problem as I do with PS. When i have more then 10 sng's running and I go into the main screen of pokerstars if frezzes for about 10 sec and makes me time out of some tables. I don't know if this is a problem with my internet which is cable or if its a ps issue.

re: Unofficial Stars 18-man SNG turbo Thread

@zuri: I have a question to you. When do you play usually? Cause I play from 8-12 central european time and 17-21 central european time. In the morning it is really difficult to run not 20 but only 4-6 table. How do you deal with that?

    when i used to grind sngs I had some tricks for bop. someone already said to avoid turbo 18mans at the end and thats solid. Id play 18mans in the beginning of a low orbit block and if it was looking good game select to close out. The same thing can be applied to high orbit if you're looking good

    I would get this in multiways, you practically have the nuts and you need to capitalize on this. What are you're finish position stats? if you're timid here you might not be playing for the win enough

    Hi guys!

    What do you think which strategy is better? To be really agressive and fight sometimes battles in which sometimes we are underdog, and get out 3 times out of 4 but got itm with high chiplead or be a bit tighter and get into itm 2 times out of 4, but with a middle stack?

    i live in Switzerland, having the same problem. Daytime pretty much sucks over here, so i usually play form like 7p.m. to 7a.m. CET. I play a lot of live games ( make my living there for the most part ) as well, and they start at 8p.m. anyway.

    Its tough cause having a gf, wanting a social life AND grinding Omaha8 doesnt really fit in Europe. I even tried NLHE because of that, but the edge just isnt big enough for me ( or i will just keep losing AA to AK PFAI )

    If i'd have a regular job i and play the hours u do, i would probably play much higher but smaller amount of tables until im sure to be able to make myself a living and turn pro playing nightime again

    get it in as an underdog is sometimes just what u need to do in turbo sngs. I obv check out what player just shoved into me, but for the most part u need chips. Not just because u want to go 1st ( since jumps from 4-3-2-1 are the same ) but also because the other players will be timide. If u sitting in the BB ( on 800/1600 blinds ) ppl with 4k stacks will think 4 times about shoving ur BB when u have like 9k chips, but they dont if u have like 2k behind.

    Getting some walks there is huge and ur able to control the field pretty much, cause they also dont call u to light. I rather take 7th or 8th then bubble because i was auto all in.

    It obv all depends on stack sizes, position, reads and stuff.

    agreed, i started a thread a week or 2 ago that I was frustrated because in 40 sng's i finished on the final table in all of them but bubbled almost half of them. Since talking to a few people on here I changed my early style to be much more agressive and having the chips behind me has made a huge improvement. There is a downside of going out early but this game is much easier when you have a 4k stack and everyone else at the table has under 2k. If you are multy tabling them then its not really a big deal of going out early hoever if your on your last dollar or you only play one a day then I would stay tight.


    BTW zuri how was the weekend and tabling 50 at a time. I finally was able to get 25 running without losing my mind cant imagine 50. If may be easier if PS would stop freezing on me when I register for a new one.

    On a brighter note I won $5.00 for my finishing spot. First week I have completed a high orbit and first time winning money for it. Yes I know its only $5.00 but its better in my account than pokerstars account

    re: Unofficial Stars 18-man SNG turbo Thread

    i just played it yesterday. Was rough, i was pretty tired and was stuck at like 45 tables or so. played 300 sngs by the end of the day. Was running ultra bad losing almost every big hand, so cant really say much about how it affects the roi, but i guess huge i need a break, might be playing some k.o's today and go back into turbos 2morrow. 2k is the goal, we'll see

    I have this problem too a lot of the time. Of course my PC is like 8 or 9 years old so that probably has a lot to do with it but it doesn't freeze while playing, only while going back to the lobby to register for a new game. Fwiw I have DSL internet so I don't think your cable is the issue.

    Maybe the computer? The computer I use is old but works for everything I need it to. I emailed pokerstars to see if they knew of anything by no response yet.

      nah after u pot it u can't really fold.

      U are 6handed, ur stack is 10BB and you are UTG with a decent but not great hand.

      With the stack sizes given on the table, that would be one of the rare spots i'd limp.
      I'll call MP's possible all in that is prop. gonna come up, but i'd fold to a pot bet by any other guy to not get in this spot.
