How is one-table sit-and-go played?
The main difference between a tournament and a multi-table tournament is the fast filling of the table and the start of the game process. The classic single-table sit-and-go is divided into four stages, namely:
Starting stage. Loose play is started first. To win, it is recommended to use a tight game. There are two reasons for this: At a table whose opponents mean they are playing a loose game, they will use a tight method. And also because of the small blinds. There is practically no “war” for them. Loose play allows you to get rid of several players at the table, but only in the early stages of a single table sit-and-go.
The middle of the horizontal bar. After the blinds rise, this stage begins. On average, there will be up to seven players at the table. It becomes a little calmer to play than with ten opponents. The main stage of the game allows you to collect enough information about the other poker players on the table.
Bubble game. If there are four players left at the table, the bubble game has started. The one who flies out at this stage will be left with nothing, and the rest will get into the prize zone. Here it is better to change the style of play and switch from an aggressive attack to moderate actions and thorough analytics. The result of the stage directly depends on the stack on hand. Get your opponents into a stupor: put all-in and wait for the result of long deliberations from your opponent. Here you need to clearly know the nuances of the cards that are in the hands of the players at the table.
Distribution of prizes and distribution of roles. Now you have to find out the true winner of the three players at the table. It is better to choose tactics of pressure on opponents.
