To me it means on the wild side of unpredictable without being a judgment as to whether good or bad.

Interesting how different individuals interpret words.

re: Unofficial Stars 18-man SNG turbo Thread

Anyone know of a resource that summarizes different preflop all-in matchups (heads-up and multiway) for O8? I think I need to brush up on my shoving/calling ranges.

      006's brain but difficult to get a hold of I'd imagine.


      why am I always stuck with 'that guy' who becomes cl after calling shoves with 67JJ and 2256 in early levels and then when bubble time comes around he all of a sudden gets shy and starts giving walks to middle stacks when there's a dude with 1 1/2-3 BB?

        Never mind, I was playing around with propokertools so I'll make my own. One thing I didn't appreciate was how much of a difference suited cards make in all-in confrontations. Can make a diff of 5% ev when all-in heads-up, regardless of what card you're holding.

        re: Unofficial Stars 18-man SNG turbo Thread

        Okay, I've come to the realization that my biggest weakness by far in the NLO8 18-mans is my late stage play. I'll get up to 3-4k chips but I often find myself getting blinded down and busting out or just sneaking in and min-cashing. I start to struggle once the blinds get to that point where limping to see a flop with half-decent hands is so darn expensive, so I end up sticking my head in the sand and watching my stack dwindle.

        How do you guys tend to play these stages - say starting at 150/300 when your stack is in the 2-4k range?

        That would be saying. Can't give away all secrets!! 2k and 4k play is quite a bit different. However, I am shoving anything I choose to enter with the 2k and probably min raising closer to the 4k but I will also shove the 4k stack a hell of a lot. There is a big difference between having a 2k and a 4k stack though. What I raise and push depends on some of these factors:
        1. My stack size
        2. Stack sizes behind
        3. How liberally the blinds and big stacks are calling
        4. Whether the other medium stacks are playing tight
        5. Position, whether I am button or MP1
        6. Hand strength obviously

        These are things you have to learn for yourself. It comes with practice. Aside to say when I make the money, anything less than 1st or 2nd pains me. Don't be afraid. Aggression wins and equities run so close pre that is always the better option. You can't play weak sauce in these-take advantage of those that do.

        Villain is a winning reg. He tends to overshove made hands but he does have some massive wrap+ flush draw, 2 pair+flush draw combos here also. Caller behind is an unknown, but Spanish (read as he could have any four cards!!). I hate having to fold here, but think this is pretty correct. Thoughts.
