Make Big Money Playing Poker Tournaments
No limit hold’em tournaments can be divided into two distinct phases:
- The early phase where blinds are small relative to the stack sizes.
- The late phase where blinds are large relative to the stack sizes.
Winning tournament players know the best strategy for beating tournaments is to play solid poker during the early phase, then play aggressively in the late phase. That’s because in the late phase the blinds become significant and you must aggressively steal blinds to survive.
The late phase is where the majority of the chips are won. It is dominated by all-in raises designed to steal the blinds. Learning how to play well in the late phase is the single most important skill you must have to win poker tournaments.
This is where the SitNGo Wizard can help.
The SitNGo Wizard will teach you how to play a near perfect late game strategy. You will learn when to push and when to fold. You will learn the importance of various factors such as number of opponents, stack sizes, and opponent calling ranges.
If you are a beginning player or just new to SitNGo tournaments, the SitNGo Wizard will quickly turn you in a winning player at the low limit SitNGo’s. If you are already an experienced SitNGo player, the SitNGo Wizard will help you find and eliminate costly mistakes that you don’t even realize you are making.
How Does It Work?
The SitNGo Wizard reads your tournament hand history and runs an analysis of each hand. The analysis compares the equity you would have if you fold pre-flop to the equity you would have if you push all-in pre-flop. Equity is your share of the prize pool at any point in the tournament. It is based on number of opponents, the size of each player’s stack, and the tournament prize structure.
The software computes the equity of every possible outcome of the hand. It combines the equity of each outcome with the probability of each outcome to come up with the total equity. It would take you days to do these calculations by hand, but the SitNGo Wizard computes them in a fraction of a second.
The Tournament View
The SitNGo Wizard automatically loads entire hand histories from Party Poker, PokerStars, Full Tilt Poker, Ultimate Bet, Absolute Poker, Titan Poker, PKR, World Poker Exchange, and the OnGame Network. Support for additional poker sites will be added based on customer requests. The tournament view (click to view full size image) displays a summary of each game in the tournament. It highlights games where your decision was close or even incorrect, so you won’t waste time on trivial hands.
The Current Hand View
Double-clicking on a hand in the tournament view activates the current hand view. The analysis compares your equity when you push to your equity when you fold and tells you which play is more profitable.
You can adjust any game parameter and instantly see how it affects the analysis. This type of “what if” analysis will quickly teach you the importance of:
- Stack sizes
- Blind sizes
- Number of players remaining
- Opponent opening and calling ranges
- Prize structure
The SitNGo Wizard doesn’t just analyze your hole cards. It analyzes all possible hands so you can see exactly what range of hands you can play in any situation. There are many occasions when it is correct to push with any two cards. Learning to recognize these situations is crucial to SitNGo success.
Taking the analysis a step further, you can generate charts (click here to view full size image) that compare different game parameters to your playable hand range. The charts alone can save you hours investigating “what if” scenarios.
Analyze Complex Pre-flop Action
The SitNGo Wizard can analyze almost any pre-flop situation. Suppose two opponents just call the big blind in front of you. The SitNGo Wizard estimates the range of hands with which each opponent limped and the range of hands with which each opponent will call your all-in push. You can easily change any opponent’s hand range estimate. Based on the estimates, it instantly calculates the range of hands with which you can push.
The SitNGo Wizard can analyze any number of pre-flop limpers, raisers, or callers. It can analyze hand with up to two all-in opponents. In fact, about the only scenario the SitNGo Wizard can’t handle is when three or more players push all-in in front of you. How often does that happen?
