From the Introduction
But most importantly, games change. The biggest example of that idea is the rise of jackpot SNGs. A format that hadn't yet been invented a few years ago has risen to become one of the most popular in online poker. Recreational players love jackpots since they're fast and have the potential for a huge win every game.
Consequently, smart regular players have moved into the format as well. Today it is one of the primary battlegrounds of online poker.
Here is the key point: The creation of jackpots created an opportunity. Good poker players have a lot of strengths, but change is often not one of them. Instead, they stick with their current format until they have no choice but to follow the recreational money.
This process creates an opportunity for smart regs to dominate new formats before their colleagues make the transition. Which brings us to SNG 2.0, a format that will expand the jackpot concept to one of the most popular game types of all time: the 9-man SNG.
From the Chapter on High Prize Pool Games
You will hit a 9-ball or higher around 0.5% of the time, or one game in 200. These highest prize pool games – particularly the jackpot ones – will play differently for two important reasons:
The 9-players-paid payout structure results in rational strategy adjustments. Players are correct to change ranges in specific ways that we will look at in detail in an upcoming section.
Players are also likely to make incorrect adjustments based on risk aversion. High prize pool games are uncommon. Similar to jackpot SNGs, many players will be reluctant to make risky plays early, or thin calls for their tournament life when the blinds get high.
In addition to normal risk aversion when playing for a lot of money, it is a natural human instinct to avoid the potential of making a significant mistake during a bigger game. The optimal way to take advantage is to apply more pressure throughout the game. This includes being more inclined to 3-bet light early; barreling more postflop when stacks are deep; and shoving wider in the late game.
From the Chapter on Winning Heads-Up Play
This means that many players, including myself, played a non-optimal strategy heads-up for a long time. We raised and shoved too much from the small blind, and did not open-limp enough (or at all). We also 3-bet shoved too often from the big blind, not defending our big blind by flatting even when that was the clearly better option.
Of course, the improved small-ball approach results in a lot more postflop play. A couple of general guidelines to help navigate these flop spots:
- When you limp the small blind and your opponent checks, you should bet most flops. Be skeptical if your opponent represents what would have been a strong hand preflop, given that he checked back after your preflop limp.
- When you defend the big blind by flatting, there's nothing wrong with check/folding the flop when you've completely missed and your opponent bets. You should get more stubborn when you've connected in some way, however, including with backdoor draws or a high card hand on a dry flop.
