      hey guys, ive started to play the 5.20$ double or nothing sit and gos. So my quiestion now is : could one of you coaches make a video or write a article on playin the optimal strategy on the bubble wich is when there are 6 players left.
      Ive searched the internet and there was not 1 article or video on this format of sit and gos so everything i know and do is all just from 10 man turbo sit and gos that pay the top 3. Its those difficult spots like when you have pocket 1010 and get an all in from some one that got you covered in chips but there are 2 very shortstack behind you. Those type of situation. When to push and when to fold in the small blind . When i need to instamuck. I understand that this format is not that popular yet and maybe because of that there are no videos or article about them. But i found that they are very profitable and alot easier to multitable. So i would be very thankfull if you look at my suggetion.

      Yeah, playing it myself, was even thinking making video lol... :)

      Basicly my stategy is: dont play any cards unless its premium before buble. (you can limp in first levels with pocket pairs for set value)

      And when at buble, then it all depends on what i have in stack, if my position stackwise 5 of 6 i basicly try to steal once a orbit to sustain that and wait for short stack to run into big one :)

      for example, today i had to Call All-in push on BB coz had KK, shortie had JJ, so basicly i ended this tourney for everyone winning that hand...

      But basicly, its survive, survive and wait for someone to get 2 good hands and run into each other :)

      And yes, i know, its hard not to play AJ and similar hands, you can limp if blinds low and hope to hit something...

      Donno, sometimes i made my stack into 5k in first 2 levels (good cards, hitting flop with everything), and then just "sit out"...

      A video on DoNs would be great. I think there are many people interested.
