Hi Everyone,

Welcome to the new and exciting MTT SNG forum.

In this forum we're going to be talking about MTT SNGs which start with 3 tables or more - 2 table SNGs will now be going in STTF.

As online poker continues to grow in popularity, so 2+2 continues to grow as well. With more players, playing in and posting about more tournaments, there comes the need to free up space in SSMTT to talk about the types of situations which occur in larger scheduled tournaments, and seperate them from some of the different types of situation which occur frequently in MTT SNGs.

Of course there will be continue to be some overlap between SNG and scheduled MTTs, but at many stages of the game they often play quite differently to a scheduled event which may have a similar structure.

An FAQ will be going up shortly, but if you have any questions about this forum in the meantime then please feel free to PM us.

Have fun, be nice to other posters, and please don't post BBV or results.

Please remember to post a description in the title when making a thread, and be courteous to other posters.

How to use the new hand history converter

This updates the FAQ, which had shown the old style HH converter.

1) Click to open the converter

2) Paste the complete hand history into the popup window

3) Ensure that the "Use position alias" box is checked.

4) If you are posting a hand for strategy discussion then please ensure that you have selected "Don't show results".

You didn't know what villain had when you made the play, so telling us what he had gives us information which was not at your disposal and makes it more difficult to offer unbiased analysis and feedback. The results aren't important to the feedback you are seeking.

5) Press the magic button and the magic will happen

6) If there is further information before showdown, but after Hero's crucial decision, which has been converted but is unnecessary, please remove it. In the example used Hero, raised all in pre flop; villain's call and the community cards are not pertinent to the discussion and so can be deleted before you post the thread.

With a bit of luck you will get text which looks like this (not including the quote box)

[converted_hand][hand_history]Poker Stars, $7 Buy-in (3,000/6,000 blinds, 600 ante) No Limit Hold'em Tournament, 2 Players
[url=""]Poker Tools[/url] Powered By [url=""]Holdem Manager[/url] - The Ultimate [url=""]Poker Software[/url] Suite. View Hand [url=" F"]#9177352[/url]

[b]Hero (BB): 87,540 (14.6 bb)[/b]

[color="red"]SB raises to 36,000[/color], [color="red"]Hero raises to 86,940 and is all-in[/color]


And the result will end up looking like this when you post

    Poker Stars, $7 Buy-in (3,000/6,000 blinds, 600 ante) No Limit Hold'em Tournament, 2 Players
    Poker Tools Powered By Holdem Manager - The Ultimate Poker Software Suite. View Hand #9177352

    SB: 182,460 (30.4 bb)
    Hero (BB): 87,540 (14.6 bb)

    Preflop: (1,200) Hero is BB with Q Q
    SB raises to 36,000, Hero raises to 86,940 and is all-in
