SAGE (Sit And Go Endgame System) is a system which was developed for the situations with two players and very high blinds, and is therefore mostly used in SNG-tournaments.
Many players are not able to adjust to the situation where the blinds are very large in proportion to the size of the stacks, which really reduces the advantage of a player which he might have had when playing under normal circumstances. By using SAGE, you can boost your own advantage against these players by around 5% to 40%.
The system itself is very simple and easy to learn. This article sets guidelines as to when you can use SAGE, and how you proceed when you are using this system.
What is SAGE?The SAGE-system is based on a so-called equilibrium-strategy. Such a strategy pictures a strategic balance (equilibrium) in which the player cannot deviate from his procedure to one side without reducing his own chance of winning.
Studies have shown, that the usage of an equilibrium-strategy nearly makes a heads-up-game with small stacks a cointoss, because first and foremost it is avoided that players with great experience outplay you.
SAGE was created by an analysis of all 169 starting hands and their strength in a heads-up. It only differs fractionally from the actual mathematical optimum, which in comparison to SAGE cannot be calculated during a game.
SAGE offers the approaching optimal strategy when you should move all-in from the small blind or respectively call an all-in from the big blind, everything in a neat and small table.
