Re: ****Official Beginner/Basic Question Thread****

Hey guys, super quick question and hoping to get help tips and advice on this hand I played during a freeroll, keep in mind I am a newer player

pokerschool freeroll
9handed blinds 40/80
sitting in bb
Qs4c
UTG raises to 160,
folds all the way around to sb
he calls, I call aswell.
flop comes 326s (pot is 480)
I bet 2/3 pot (319)
preflop folds, sb calls (pot is 1118)
turn comes Qd, sb thinks for awhile, jams all in (3421)
I think for quite a while, (I only had 731 behind)
my thought process was that I had outs for the flush draw and of course it was possible for him to have Ks/As given he flatted preflop
or even a set from limping a pocket pair
I end up calling, the turn comes and its 7d and he shows 8s9d

In reality, was this a really just a bad call I got lucky on? In which spots could I have played better and what should my thought process be throughout this hand?

I'd like to track my results in SNG's. Can anyone recommend a spreadsheet that includes graphs? Thank you.

Rili98 I'm a beginner as well but I'm pretty sure you just got lucky. Q4o is pretty much a trash hand and you shouldn't be calling. You will be out of position with a bad hand. What do you expect to flop? In SNGs you shouldn't get involved with bad hands when the blinds are low.

If you are interested in SNGs I suggest reading Collin Moshman's book on SNGs. It has helped me a lot.

Apparently there is also a fold button. I just learned this today.

What would a numeric answer to that question help you?
They're a beatable game type, if and to which extent u can beat them solely depends on your play no one here knows anything about.

Re: ****Official Beginner/Basic Question Thread****

The new reward program in PokerStars (Chests) is very bad, I'm starting to put volume into micro 6-max hypers and I think it's probably gonna hurt me in the long run.
What other sites are good for 6-max hypers?

Re: ****Official Beginner/Basic Question Thread****

Hi Team,

Just starting out and have a few bankroll questions.

Am a 'rec' player playing for fun, however wouldn't mind going on a cheap holiday somewhere and having my stay supplemented. I have enough to income to sponsor my habit if need be - I am also playing $1.50 at the moment on stars for info purposes.

1st up, what is an acceptable sample size of STT SNGs to determine if your ROI is an accurate representation at a given level?

2nd, What ROI is acceptable to warrant a shot at the next stakes? (I assume anything above rake?)

So my question is if number of buyin's is not an issue (at the micro/low stakes), and you are simply looking to grind out a profitable stat before moving up.

What should those stat's be?

Thanks heaps

Re: ****Official Beginner/Basic Question Thread****

1st depends on the kind of SNG you play. Ranging from thousands for normal SNGs to tens of thousands for Hyper/KO kinda games and even more for Spins/Jackpot. That is if you are talking accurate. You can get a general idea with less, also if you use a tracking tool like Pokertracker or HEM, you can use further stats to determine how good you are (like all-in ev aka did you run good or bad in all-ins), needing even less of a sample.

2nd ROI wouldnt be something I consider much. Being a winner is usually good.

Goal, Mindset, Roll, Confidence. If those line up, move up.

Re: ****Official Beginner/Basic Question Thread****

Thanks Ronny

Play normal 9p STT SNG, so I will aim for 1K tournaments with a positive ROI before moving up.

One of the biggest problems for me is discipline and getting bored of grinding, so I want to spend a bit of tuning that portion of the game. I assume this will then be a big enough sample size for a coach to plug leaks with.

Goal: To make $50/day.
Currently I four table, so I figure at 32 games/day and had an ROI of 20% I would need to play $15 games.

Mindset: Need to do the 1K over 3 months (working full time), to prove I am serious. I will then move to the next step, if profitable, or hire a coach depending on ROI.

Roll: Can always go back to the real world.

Confidence: I dare say that will depend on how my stats look after the next 3+ months. Winning at $15 does seem a little intimidating atm.

Good idea, no matter the sample, u could e.g. just analyse a whole session with him.

Not a good idea, set goals that u can completely achieve by own effort, not monetary ones that depend on short-term fluctuation.

This is far from a realistic ROI, u're just running very hot, check sharkscope e.g. for what regs achieve.

Thanks LS,

Yeah I was running hot! Now I am struggling to break even before the 16.3% rake...

Still sample size is very small...

But a coach/mentor or someone to sweat with would be very handy.

Why is 42s a push and not the others? I checked a nash heads up chart and according to it 42s is the worst hand of the 4 to do the pushing.

While the hand is heads-up at this point, it's not equivalent to a heads-up game. There are ICM considerations (since 2 positions pay) that will cause to BB to call all-in tighter than the Nash HU chart. Since BB calls tighter, SB can push a little wider. Apparently 42s does better than the other hands against whatever that tighter BB calling range is.

Re: ****Official Beginner/Basic Question Thread****

Uh so difficult to know all that. I have one other simple question I am wondering about. 6max turbo, three players left. BTN folds. SB and BB have 10bbs. Should SB push tighter the more bbs(over 10) BTN has? My feeling is BB should call looser if BTN has 100bbs compared to 10bb.
