Online Texas Holdem - Nl Holdem Sit-n-Go's On The Rise

Feb 10, 2008
This article is all about the rise of online texas holdem, specifically NL Holdem Sit N Go's.

Are you sick and tired of bad beats? Losing all your bankroll in just one hand? Depositing over and over again and can't find a way to win?

Well if you answered yes to at least two of these questions it might be time to try Sit-N-Go's. If you like online poker, sit-n-go's are definitely the best way to make a stable income online. There are many online poker rooms that offer sit-n-go's around the clock for starting as little as $2.00.

The prize pool structure consists of the following:

1st Place Win 50% of the prize pool
2nd Place Finish30% of the prize pool
3rd Place Finish20% of the prize pool

All you have to do is finish in the top 3 out of 9 people. It is not hard if you practice over and over again and gain as much experience as possible. Blinds start to eat everyone's chip stack which is why the Sit-N-Go finishes extremely fast.

Whether its 3 am or 3pm, Sit-N-Go's can be entered in at anytime around the clock. They are accurately running around the clock at just about every single online poker site. You will always find a game no matter what. This means that as soon as you lose in one of the Sit-N-Go's you can join another immediately. Many weak players don't feel like waiting around for a cash game, so they join a Sit-N-Go and play horrible. There are many free online poker sites to practice on before you play for real money.

Another benefit is the poker chips sitting in front of you is not real money chips and you can ONLY lose a set amount. At a cash table you can lose all of the money you have at any time, especially to a suck out. It is absolutely the worst feeling in the world. In a Sit-N-Go however, you can only lose what the buy in was for the tournament. A bad beat or suck out won't kill your bankroll.

Sometimes you will find yourself in a Sit-N-Go where players go all in frequently. Many people refer to them as "all-in maniacs." Unless you are dealt a high pocket pair or can catch top pair on the flop with a good kicker, it is just best to sit back and watch them knock out each other. Once they knock each other out its game time for you.

At this point in the sit-n-go tournament the blinds should still be real low, so often you will find that there are 6 people left, and you only need 3 more gone to make the money. It's best to start out tight a gradually loosen up as the game advances. On the opposite side of the spectrum, sometimes you will find yourself in a Sit-N-Go where it is boring and there is no action going on at all. Try to entertain yourself and have patience, this is actually a very good thing. You may not have a chance to win a large pot at the beginning stages, but in the long run you are slowly building your stack to take down first place. If you are in this situation it is best to take charge of the table and show them who is boss. You can bluff more without getting caught, bet people off their draws, etc. Please note that as the Sit-N-Go progresses player's games may change and start loosening up. You must adjust accordingly.
