      Do you think these 300 chip SnGs on FTP are beatable by just using SAGE?

      They start with 10BB.

      Variance would probably be high, but i think given the fishiness of the micros, sage could be good enough to crush this?

      i'm thinking of playing push with SAGE / Nash.

      if they limp and i can't push, continue and shove with mid pair or better, if the board texture is ok.

      you think we can beat the 5% rake on the $2+0.1 with this?

      When these first came out I followed the HU SNG regs thread on 2+2 very close, and the conclusion was that they were extremely addictive but not beatable long term.

      This is my only reference as I don't play them myself. But good luck if you decide to try.

      Using SAGE, if you have 7 BB's and are in the BB, you're calling with a power index of 30+. The weakest hand you will call with is J6s BUT you will exclude hands which sngWiz dictates you should call within the range of J6s.

      J6s = 11x2 + 6 + 2 = 30 (bottom of 49% range)
      Q5o = 12x2 + 5 = 29 (bottom of 46.9% range)
      89s = 9x2 + 8 + 2 = 28 (bottom of 46% range)
      22 = 2x2 + 2 + 22 = 28 (bottom of 22.5% range)

      It seems like the Power Index is a quickfire way to establish a "score" for your hand but doesn't seem to agree with the ranges that sngWiz specifies. In the bottom example sngWiz considers 22 to be a top 22.5% hand whereas SAGE considers it to only be a 28/67 hand.

      For me it is this anomaly which makes SAGE exploitable.
