      Howdy all, Im an absolute fanatic only been playing since xmas, Ive read about six books and play in $12 dollar sit n go's every night with a local poker league, if i finish early I"ll play sitngos online for a couple of hours, my ambition now is to retire playing poker At the moment not real good I make final tables regularly but most of the time finish outside the money. Im pretty sure with the xtra knowledge and advise from ps I'll soon make the money more often (at the lower levels for now). Any pals I can pick up for regular disscusions with the same desires would be great.

      Hello columbyrne and welcome to PokerStrategy!

      If you are interested in SNGs and improving your play there - you have found the right place. Together with the ICM trainer & our articles - you should experience extreme leaps in your understanding and results. I can only recommend you do 4 things;

      #1) Head over to the video section and watch some videos: http://www.pokerstrategy.com/video/sng/

      There are quite a few low level SNG videos by Unam, Chenny and Helemaalnicks for bronze members which will help show you if you are doing things right or not.

      #2) Download the ICM Trainer Light and the normal ICM Trainer: http://www.pokerstrategy.com/software/

      Practice your ICM - its important for understanding key principles of playing late phase SNGs ;)

      #3) Read the Strategy articles to help you understand why you should play tight early on and loose in the late phase: http://www.pokerstrategy.com/strategy/sng/

      #4) Check out our coaching schedule: http://www.pokerstrategy.com/coaching/

      We have several live SNG coachings a week where you can watch the pros play and ask questions. A very good method for improving :)


      If you do these things you will be seeing great improvements in your strategy in no time :)

      Best regards
