    evening has starting as of now, will be posting my scores in this post

    Open League Freeroll, Result: 4704 (terrible luck)

    $1.50 Fifty50 10 man, Result: $2.04 (0 showdowns)
    $1.50 Fifty50 10 man, Result: $2.29 (1 showdown)
    $1.50 Fifty50 10 man, Result: 7th (lost on the river)
    $1.50 Fifty50 10 man, Result: $3.61 (triple up with AK suited)

    Total Buy-in $6.00 Total prize money: $7.94 Total profit: $1.94

    Decided to play a low stake MTT because all was going well.

    Tournament 445301117 Buy-in $3.30 Prize money $5K guaranteed, Result: 1468th place...
    (Raise 4xBB preflop + cbet made me pot committed, lost with 88 to AA)
    I really need to controll not to do that with weak hands... oh well back to the SNG's

    $1.50 Fifty50 10 man, Result: 6th (never ending short stack)
    $1.50 Fifty50 10 man, Result: 10th (first hand JJ all-in instant, get called by QQ game over)
    $1.50 Fifty50 10 man, Result: 9th (3 man showdown all-in with KQ not a good decision)

    Total Buy-in $4.50 Total prize money: $0.00 Total lost: $4.50

    $1.94 - $3.30 - $4.50 = $5.86 lost

          At least you realize the KQ play was weak. As for the JJ,yeah it looks sexy but why do you need to be open shoving 50 bb's with ANY hand,ever,in a 50/50 SNG? Just not a +EV play really,you're 2 most likely results are to only scoop the blinds (so small at that point that they're inconsequential..) or to get stacked by a better hand or some dope playing A-rag and binking their bullet. And there are PLENTY of mopes in these that think any Ace is good to go.

          Remember Tiber,in micro games,especially the mini-micros ($2.00 and less), the majority of the players are super bad and you rarely,if ever,have to really try to beat a bad player. Give them enough time and they'll beat themselves.

          Given my experience in the 90 mans I'm guessing blinds were probably at somewhere between level 7 (125/250 25 ante) and level 10 (300/600 50 ante). So you're either M9 for a high,or M4 for a low.

          M is what you should use to calculate where you stand after the antes come out---I'll assume 7 players on the table in this scenario--level 7 blinds are 125 +250=375 + 7x25 antes =175+375=550 5000/550= 9.09 M9 you have 9 times around the table AT THAT LEVEL before you blind off. Does that make sense?

          So shipping the 1010 hand under either scenario is perfectly acceptable,especially if the blinds were higher and you're M6 or less. At M9 though,with only 2 until the bubble bursts,I would only be looking to get it in with 1010 IF I'm the aggressor,i.e. the one opening the pot. Don't know how many of these 90 mans you've played but I can tell you for sure that the way the structure is set up in these you usually have most of the players stacked way above the blinds and a few stragglers looking for their shove spot.

          1010 is fine to go first,and you may luck up and get a big stack to call you with garbage whilst defending a blind (many times the big stacks at the bubble in these are droolers who are on a heater in this particular game after all...). Short stacks shoving before your 1010 can be a huge range,any pair,any ace,a big king or any double paint really and many times any suited connectors. Try to keep notes where you can as you'll see a lot of the same players over and over again if you plan to play a big number of these and having a good line on their range can help you immensely when faced with this and other decisions at "money time" in any SNG.

          Hope this helps. Good luck.
