  • 50/50's - the new BR Builder??

    Can these really be this soft? With the all the attention and action form the group regarding the 50/50s it got my curiosity going and I decided to try one.

    I'm not a big sitngo guy and never played the DON''s but tried a $5 regular one today and it seemed ridiculously easy.

    Dear freddysw, You finished the tournament in 3rd place. A USD 9.89 award has been credited to your Real Money account.

    I remember Dave the Langolier saying these were soft and granted it was just one $5 attempt but it seemed a PSO style approach would work pretty well in these.

    Looking for some more tips and other thoughts/advice. I'm thinking these could be a nice way to build the BR. Thinking of making 10 $5 attempts and going from there.

    I'm in a $20 one right now freddy and I'm definitely liking them so far. I don't think the $20 ones are quite as soft as the ones below, but I am up in the moneys, which is good. Gotta love the characters you get in them, too. In the one I'm in right now, I'm seated right in between a Platinum and a Supernova, but about three people at the table seem to be very new to the game.

    Not in it anymore.

    If I had to give you one tip, it'd be to not nit up. Play hands that rate to be ahead, and as always, keep a close eye on your opponents' tendencies. It should yield +good results. Good luck, enjoy, and let us know how you run!

      Sounds good Panicky and congrats once again - I think this is also the poker karma showing you some much deserved love. Problem is, I am a nit so I'll have to work on that. I will try ten $5 50/50's next few days and see how it goes. Keep up the good work. umbup:

          Sit & Go's. Filter to find just the Fifty50's, if you want. They're pretty clearly marked.

            OK just played two more same time and cashed in both. 3 for 3 so far. umbup: Incredibly one player who had signed up for the same two 50/50's I was in sat out the entire time. Did he think he would make top 5?? Is he an idiot or has he had success doing this - I was dumbfounded. He blinded out 6th place in both it was beautiful.

                Here are my stats after 10 games:

                Average Buy-In - $15
                In the Money - 60%
                Return on Investment - 47.9%
                Profit - $76.12

                Not too shabby. Anyone else have any numbers or stories to share?

                  My present ($20) table is unusually limpy (a $20 table, seriously), and this hand made me lol. You'll see why I'm surprised it's not a $1 table when you watch this.

                        You know, in all of the discussion surrounding the DoN cancellation, I never heard that come up once. Was curious about that.

                        I hope it doesn't though.

                              I've been using single table SNG's to build, but I wondered about the 50/50's. Think I know how I'll be spending my unexpected day off today.
