      A lot of mistakes.
      Especially at the later levels SNG's play totaly different then cash games.

      At the moment i am a bit busy so i cant give you exact details.

      But i am sorry for what i have to say now but:When you continue playing SNG's you will go broke quickly, propably until the end of the weekend.

      Stick to cash games. And read a lot, post sample hands and you should visit Blinzerls or Benjos Coaching at the weekend.

      Best regards,
      Stefan

      i wont go through specific hands but i can tell you a general thing: You are playing way too passive at this point of a sng (or any turnament in the later stages for that matter) - you bet 3 times in total in those hands. By being the first in a pot instead of being the "callingstation" you show your opponents alot more strenght. When you get to the later stages in sng's you must have a few reads on your opponents which should be able to tell you if they got a hand or not (most of the time you should be able to judge the approximate strengt of their hand [including their hand range] by looking at their betting patterns) - reading you opponent is a must to be a good sng player.

      In the later stages in a sng the cards you get doesnt count as much as in the beginning - remember poker is a people game with cards - not the other way around. I'm quite sure you could have gotten quite a few of the small pots by placing a bet (just a small 1-2bb bet, and if you get reraised you can always throw it away - depending on your hand vs your reads on your opponent ofc. The handrange in the late parts of a tournament should also be bigger - with the blinds eating you up you need to get in and get/steal some pots.

      I'm no master in sng's myself (i have quite some trouble finding the right time to "switch gears", but anyway i like cash more - at least for the time being) but i have played quite some shorthanded cash-games where the strategy is pretty similar to the late sng's.
      But my advise would be the same as Stefan's - practice in cashgames (fullring) - especially practice your reading skills + read alot of strategy (here or in books) + participate in the coachings (i never used these much myself but im sure you can learn alot if you can concentrate ;) ) + participate in alot of freerolls if you can - its great practice since you'll need to find the right time to loosen up in these too to survive (the reading isn't that easy to practice in MTT since you'll be moved once in a while, but you should be able to find out quite fast if the others are tight, loose, passive, agressive or maniacs - also your own image will be important to keep in mind - since the players at the new table cant see how you played before you were moved)..

      If you just follow the shortstacked guide in here completely you should be able to build up a little bankroll again, while studying some tournament strategies of course if you want to return to sng's again when you got the bankroll to it.

      I think thats all the advise i can give. Hope you can use it (all of it might not be completely after the book but the overall principles are right for sure)

      Best regards

      You can plan on going back to SNG's later.
      But at the moment Mugges advice is the best thing what you can do. Go and read the Short Stack Strategy Articles in our "No-Limit Beginners section"

      I could easily tell you what you want to hear but that wouldn't be the truth. If you like playing poker PLEASE do the following:

      Read and study the No-Limit Articles FIRST!!!
      then start playing the "Short Stack Strategy"

      No-Limit Cash games will give you a fundamental education for later SNG games.

      If you have any question don't hesitate to ask.

      We have an excellent SNG Guide in our Intermediates section from one of the TOP Sng players. But first you need 2 things:

      1) Practice
      2) A big enough Bankroll for SNG's

      Best regards,
      Stefan
