  • New video: I need your help!

    Hey guys,
    I am creating a new video for beginners on sng's. The first part of the series will be reviewing the beginning of 9 man sngs from blinds levels (10/20)-(25/50) If you could send me select hand histories from these levels you are unsure about I can review it for my newest video. You can just post the HH in this forum and I will select the good ones. Thanks guys!

    Hiya SG, quick question... Would you accept play money HHs?, as at that level (20-50) some play alot like small buy in real money SNGs, and sinse i'm in the US, that's all I can submit. Thnx for your time, MT
    May the tinfoil protect you. MT

      Not to speak for Grayson, but I would suggest the buy in doesn't matter in what he's looking for (including play chip games)... if you have a tough or interesting spot just post it up! And like he said, he'll pick from the good ones for his video. A good spot, and spots that have instructional value for the blind levels he's wanting to cover, might come at any buy in level.

      Thanks Grayson for this, should be fantastic and a great learning opportunity for the community!

          I am just wondering if this is "the" Spacegravy. Just watched him exit WCOOP, probably clicking on his name to watch him was the kiss of death

                  I've played a bunch of $3.50 6max STT's, and a couple of $3.50 50/50's, but never the full-table ones. So I thought I'd give them a try, and that either: (a) I'd do okay and win some money, or (b) could come back and share my hands with spacegravy and maybe have the chance to get feedback on how to do (a). How can you lose? umbup: So plan (b) it is I played two SNG's, and with both tables the makeup of players seemed kind of the same as at the 50/50's for this level ($3.50) ... 2 or 3 really loose players, with the rest being super tight. Is that typical for a lot of full-ring STT's? I thought maybe it might be because I got AJs in early-mid position, and then there was that strategy question of like ... would it be better to try and tangle with the more active players if you get a hand that's likely ahead of their range (in the hopes of chipping up)? Or would it be better to lay low and hope that they knock each other out? I couldn't decide, and so this hand turned into a bit of a disaster The two players to my right were the ones with the VPIP's of 90 (although it was still early), and the player to my left had a VPIP of about 50 (PFR 30) ... nobody else including me had yet to play a hand outside the blinds (except dendy_barn, but it felt like they had an actual hand when the had) ...

                          a hand to ponder The 2 villians were looker like lags But it was only hand 11 of a 3.50 STT was this a good fold?
