      Before few days I read all thing about playing SnG. That things what is asked in quiz. So i have some quations about it.


      1) There is writen that I have to play only with good hands. In diferrent phase- different hands. So i have to wait for good hands. I went to triobet.com poker room and whanted to play with only good hands. So if i have 1500 chips and blinds are 10/20.. I cant play with not so good hands? I cant play with J9s and that kind of cards? I waited good hands, but after a while blinds just suck my blood out of me... You know? I hope everything is clear...

      Hello Peteric,

      When you have more than 25 Big Blinds you will only enter the action with cards that will often stay or become the best hand even after the community cards are dealt, allowing you to play through the many betting rounds without too much hassle or too many headaches and then when you get to 13 - 24 Big Blinds you play less hands than before, but you complement this strategy with two special moves: blind steals and steal re-raises and once you get to under 13 big blinds then you enter the push/fold mode.

      I hope this helps but if you have any specific questions then please feel free to ask away ;) .

      Kind Regards,
      -Steve

      Hello Peteric,

      If you are in Late Position and no-one has raised before you then yes you can play with speculative hands (like A7s) but there are certain conditions that need to be met in order for you to play them.

      But you will also need to be careful on the flop if you hit top pair as you have a weak kicker. Ideally you are looking to hit a flush or straight (draw), or three-of-a-kind.

      Once you become Bronze Status then you will access to an article that explains all about how to play with speculative hands in the early phrase of a SnG.

      Kind Regards,
      -Steve

      Hi Peteric

      As soon as you have received the starting capital and started playing poker on your linked account, you will start to receive PokerStrategy points. You will need just 1 point to get your Bronze status which will then open up lots more strategy material, videos & coaching sessions for you.

      For full details of how the points and status levels work, please see the following link:


      Wishing you every success and enjoyment with your poker.

      Kind Regards,
      -Steve

      Hi Peteric,

      It can take up to 96 working hours for the ID to be passed and the starting capital allocated, but please bear with them as they do get extremely busy at times.

      It hopefully shouldn't be too long, you'll soon be up & running.
