The moment you start playing Sit and Go poker tournaments you will have the opportunity to encounter various types of poker players. Each and every type of player has its weakness. This is the reason why we are going to teach you how you can classify the online Sit and Go Poker players. The moment you know what type of player you have in front of you, you will know exactly what strategy you can use to gain advantages over his game play.
In case you want to make serious money out of your Sit and Go poker play, we consider that it’s very important to understand correctly your opponents and to know what action you should take against them.
The moment you start seeing what mistakes your opponents are doing you can finally start to exploit them and move on to the next level.
When you’ll be playing at the low and mid-stake Sit and Go poker tournaments, the opponents will be pretty much the same. This means that they will be part of a well defined field of opponents and they can easily be tracked. But once you will be playing at the high stakes, you will start encounter opponents that do not belong to a certain pattern and they will not match with the types of opponents that are described in this article.
Typically, the moment you are going to play a Sit and Go poker tournament, you will be encountering 4 different types of players: good players, ok players, weak players and terrible players. It’s going to be up to you to understand what the category of each player is.
The good players are easy to spot, since they start by winning most of the pots from the beginning and these players are not going to give much of an edge at the table. This category of players is going to play very tight at the early stages of a SNG tournament. Make sure that you take a close watch on your opponents during the early stages and see which players are only going to play a few hands at the beginning and they will be likely good poker players.
There will be some ok players at the SNG tournament. The difference between the good players and these players is that these players will likely be making a couple of mistakes. But just like the good players these are not going to give you a good edge that could help you win the Sit and Go Poker Tournament. This is the reason why you should always focus on the weak and terrible players; they are the number one milking cows at any Sit and Go poker tournament.
The terrible and weak poker players will also be easy to spot since they are the ones that will be making lots of mistakes and very often, they will repeat them.
Here is a short list of the mistakes that the weak players are likely to make:
- play too many hands at the beginning of the tournament.
- call too much.
- will not take into consideration the pot odds when playing a hand.
- they will play the same and use the same strategy at Multi Table Tournaments, Sit and Go Tournaments and cash games.
- bad players usually think that they have a good hand because the flop looks very good and it’s packed with premium cards.
