How do you guys play this? And rate my play, I figured it's not that bad considering the looseness of this level:

I got two view's off it!

1. As you sad " I figured it's not that bad considering the looseness of this level " I agree. Most times you will win. And have an very impressive head start. And if you loose then you can start another Sit'N'Go. And don't have wasted any time on that one.. /images/graemlins/grin.gif


2. If you go up in buyins.. eg maybe $30+ then people will not call you if they don't have AA (yes i know there are lots off morons there to.. /images/graemlins/wink.gif so maybe sometimes you will get an caller...) so you should change your strategy and start playing "real" poker..

I would have played it this way pre-flop.

First at the $10 Sit'N'Go:
I would maybe have rasied about 100-120. You will nearly almost get some callers and will maybe push out the big/small blind. You don't want to give them an free look at the flop.

At the $50 Sit'N'Go.
I would normaly only rasie the minimum. Beacuse i want 1-2 callers and i don't want the BB to get a free flop with his rag. Many times i will get rerasied beacuse people think i'm a moron that minrasie and then is where the fun starts!.. If it's lots off limpers.. say 4-5 i would rasie quite much to try to get it to an heads up match between the rerasier and me. But if it's only 1-2 limpers i would normaly only rasie a little bit more.. Everyone will probably call and you will get more money into the pot.

What will i do after the flop (both $10+$50 Sit'N'Go).

That depends. Both how many callers and what the flop look likes. If it' scary.. flush and straight draws i would perhaps overbet the pot or go all-in. If the flop is nice i might try to milk them for some more money. And if the flop flops an Ace.. I usally check/fold if someone bets big.

Pretty straight forward.
