    Played on 0.25 sit and go

    Being in position, when it checks to me on the flop, if I want to take a shot at the pot, I need to make a standard bet (3/4 pot with 3 opps). I don't want to bet more, I don't want to bet less and it's more believable if it's on the flop.

    To represent an A, I need to bet the flop, not the turn, as an A will bet the flop.

    By betting the turn, the only thing that the turn 5 could have helped would be another 5.. but also, when everyone else checks, a 5 will bet the flop.. so the turn overbet ends up being exactly what it is.. an overbet bluff (with 66 turned into a bluff).

    When I want to make a bluff, I need to take a consistent line in the hand that makes sense all the way thru. Also, in these sng's early, bluffing is not a good play, as there are too many calling stations in them that don't own a fold button.

    Don't bluff and when you hit a made hand, value bet them to death is how to win consistently in them.
