Glad to see that my terrible first few efforts have been improved. Best of luck with this.

5.3. STANDARD DEVIATION

Irieguy’s Why the standard deviation for SNGs is always about 1.5-2.0

Not to be an ass, but this post I made predates Irieguy's SD thread by a couple of months.

7.4. RECORD KEEPING

7.4. RECORD-KEEPING

AleoMagus’s SNG spreadsheet (download link in this thread) is good for users with some (very) basic knowledge of MS Excel. It can automatically record tournaments thanks to some clever VBasic macros. It provides comprehensive splits for level, day, and time of day, and calculates a number of statistical performance measures such as ROI confidence intervals. It also tracks bankroll and risk of ruin.

Hood's SNG Tracker is another popular piece of results-tracking software. It can import data from a Poker Tracker database and produce some fine-looking visuals of finish distributions and profit.

Poker Tracker is a commercial program that imports hand histories stored on your hard drive and generates statistics and reports based on them for you and your opponents. Many sites store the HH's on your hard drive automatically, and PT can also import them from emailed tournament summaries. Poker Tracker can be used by beginning players for self-evaluation and by more advanced players as an opponent-scouting tool.

Re: 7.4. RECORD KEEPING

Slim, thanks for the contribution. It'd be great if others could add some favorite threads of their own.

For example, one area where my OP is weak is post-flop play. Can anyone suggest some good threads?

BTW, Paul, thanks for pointing out your own post, which I missed. I'd be delighted even if posters just suggested some of their own best threads.

Re: Favorite Threads and Links for STT FAQ v.3 (long)

Wow, I feel like a kid who woke up on Christmas to find he was given a toy store. I just posted asking what people studied to get specifically good at STT's, and got a few good answers and a great link, and then the next day I see this great link. Thanks for the work, Shadow, and everyone else who contributed so that Shadow could put so many great links together in one place.

Re: Favorite Post-Flop Threads

As Irie's mentioned, we, as a forum, can do a better job of discussing post-flop play. My OP was pretty weak on the subject. Thanks to Scuba, Irie, and others, I can now add a few more post-flop play threads.

3.3 POST-FLOP

Does anyone think my play is a leak here? a/k/a how not to play Axs

Post Flop Play for dummies - HELP a/k/a how not to get lost playing TPWK from the BB

ATo in the BB which led to Irie's Betting impetus and Betting impetus: some clarification

Who (besides Yugo, whom I don't want to miss, at least now that he's changed his avatar) can suggest some more good post-flop threads?

Do SNG players use a spreadsheet in place of PT or as a complement?

Sure, why not?

I had a not quite a organized but fairly contentful 2+2 library by the first time I posted...

Then I made all that missed posting up in a hurry, .

Re: ROI and ITM rules of thumb

I'm updating Section 5.2 of my list to add three good threads on ROI and ITM stats:

5.2 ROI AND ITM%

Pokerscott's SnG ROI Confidence Intervals--Monte Carlo results ***REPOST***

eastbay's ROI uncertainty rules of thumb

Slim Picken's ITM uncertainty rules of thumb

Thanks to Pokerscott, eastbay, and Slim Pickens for working up these stats.

Re: 5.4 MOVING UP

I'm adding some good threads about whether $x is really harder than $(x+1).

5.4 MOVING UP

If you think $20 SnG's are harder than $10 SNGs, you've got a leak that both fish and pros can exploit.

Irie's Zero-Sum game theory and equilibrium explains why profitability (ROI) generally decreases as limits increase.

In Madness in the Rhythm, Irie suggests that relative to their buy-in, the $33's are the most difficult SNG limit to play.

While it didn't get as much attention as other threads, two observations in "Zero Sum Thoery" struck me as worthwhile. First, John Paul speculates that adding a higher limit game attracts the best players, which in turn makes the lower limits easier. Second, gumpzilla notes that the rake requires an influx of new money, otherwise the system reaches the equilibrium at "Party Poker = 100%, everybody else = 0."

Re: 3.2 PREFLOP

I'm adding a pair of posts about how to play low pairs.

3.2 PREFLOP

dfscott's small pairs in the middle levels debates how to play 55 in the middle levels.

Question for Daliman debates Dali's pushing 44 UTG from the big stack at the bubble and what you need to call the push.

Re: 7.7 MISC.

I started this thread
so I hope you don't mind if
I add two of mine

7.8 MISC.

Favorite poker quotes

Poker haiku

BTW, scratch www.saabpo.com. The bot figured out that there's more profit in porn than poker.

Re: 7.1 POKER ODDS

While I'm updating this list, I'll also add my post from earlier today with a handy pot odds table.

7.1 POKER ODDS

Pot odds made easy table



I'm glad that this thread already has hit 3500+ views (even more than GauchoFish gets) and hope that others find the list useful. One way to make it even better is for others to post threads that they find useful. (That means no threads complaining about bad beats, bots, cheating, or even Yugo's avatar. )

Re: SnG FAQ v.3 (Consolidated PDF)

Thanks. Great job! Thanks for integrating all the updates.

BTW, I don't view this as the STT FAQ itself, but just a list of threads and links for Citanul and others to include in the FAQ they're writing.
