Live poker games strategy

Hi, so I've been playing a lot of live poker SnGs (around 3-5 tables) and haven't really been able to find a proper strategy to play against players that limp around 90%~ of hands and never fold to 3 bets, this is majority of the players that are playing too. Play normally tightens up after a couple of hours as the blinds go up. Any advice would help, thanks

Bet your big hands huge, especially pre. Don't barrel without a made hand. Value town them to death when you flop TPGK+. Just look for a cheap showdown when you just flopped overs, and don't pay off passive players when they start betting. Curse when their 35o gets there, but remind yourself that they paid you off pre seven times before they hit and that more than made up for what you lost this time.

Re: Live poker games strategy

As an old sng player online the best advice and most basic was to play very tight early on and loosen up as blinds increase. It helps your overall image when you get down to final table/in the money as people have you marked as a tight player since that's what you were showing them in the early stages. Also, blinds at the start barely make a dent in starting stacks, so there's no reason to be trying to steal Everytime it's folded to you on the button. As it goes on and blinds are more valuable, that's when you turn the heat up and start applying pressure. Good luck!

Re: Live poker games strategy

Don't raise pf just because you figure you are marginally in front, (e.g. A9 pf etc) SNG's are different to MTT's / Cash. You don't want to play big pots with hands that need to improve to give you the best hand. Vs a raise, AK is a good candidate to flat pf also! good luck!
