A Collection of Advice on playing PokerStars 180 man Sit and Go\'s

STRATEGY POSTS

I went back and searched each month for all posts involving either the $4/180s or the $20/180s since the $20s were created in Oct 05. I can not vouch for how sound the advice is in all these threads...some may disagree...some may agree. These however are all the 180 posts I could find that were not simply hand specific..i.e "how do you play this hand". Anyone can search and find these posts but using the search function is annoying and I figured it would be easier for everyone if we simply had them all in one thread.

The majority of the 180 posts are hand specific types. The strat posts are few and far between...so this is all I could find. Hope it is useful for you.

I also sought out several regulars who played the 180s and asked if I could convert their winning hand histories and post them. They agreed and so I've included them in this thread.

On a sidenote...every Saturday at 8pm EST there will be a $4/180 Royal Rumble contest. All posters contribute $10 and play 4 consecutive 180s with the winner getting the spoils and being Champion for the week.

Congrats to LastSamuri for taking home the $130 for his $10 investment.
All you lurkers should play if you have the time...it would be great to get a prize pool as large as $400 to $600 dollars without a huge entry fee.

That is all.
Enjoy

I have several of Toddy's and Shaundeeb's $20/180 and $4/180 wins that I want to convert, but so far the only MTT hand history converter that I could find doesn't seem to work.

If I get the time I may just do it manually hand by hand...but you'll have to wait till then unless someone knows of a working multi hand converter.

I think this should be rehashed due to the new 10/180's

Not sure what you mean by rehashed, but it is must-read. The differences I've noticed are that the $10s tend to play just a bit faster. A couple of times we hit the money before the end of the second hour, which I never saw in a $20. Also, there are some sample-size issues at work, but Holy Blind Steals do things tighten up on the bubble, even compared to the 20s.

im surprised no one has mentioned this but shaundeeb had an EXCELLENT in depth post as a guide to 180 mans...and hes the right man to be teaching about them...well i found the link to it and here it is

https://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/showfl...e=0#Post9209807

and a very informative post and it tells you and what levels where you want your stack to be, how to play those levels, and how to expect others to play. I dunno i think this might be a topic worth adding to the list above.. thanks for collecting all this info and putting it in one spot it is amazingly helpful.

Re: A Collection of Advice on playing PokerStars 180 man Sit and Go\'s

one thing that happens alot in these donkaments is, late stages, ppl min-raising preflop, and im in BB, it just is annoying and makes me wanna punish them, but the thing is they mostly do it with Ax or KJ or some shiat marginal holding, and they call a re-raise allin with it.

I mean, we mostly always have like, 3 or 4-1 odds to call.

assuming we have a mid stack of M=9/10,what you guys do about it? limp call, push, or just ignore?

or for ex,, SB min raises into u in BB,u play most cards except utter garbage or what?
