Why are the reasons people get too many thirds and not enough 1st or 2nds.

[/ QUOTE ]

I've been getting a lot of 3rds recently because I've been converting totally card dead shortstacked SnGs into thirds because the big stacks play bad.

Edit: Tho, yesterday I converted one of those into a first because the big stack played REALLY bad...

PokerStars No-Limit Hold'em Tourney, Big Blind is t200 (3 handed) converter

BB (t9655)
Hero (t1120)
SB (t2725)

Preflop: Hero is Button with Q[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img], Q[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img].
<font color="#CC3333">Hero raises to t1120</font>, <font color="#666666">1 fold</font>, BB calls t920.

Flop: (t2340) Q[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img], T[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img], J[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(2 players)</font>

Turn: (t2340) 5[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(2 players)</font>

River: (t2340) 5[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(2 players)</font>

Final Pot: t2340

A bunch of hands later....

PokerStars No-Limit Hold'em Tourney, Big Blind is t800 (2 handed) converter

BB (t6270)
Hero (t7230)

Preflop: Hero is Button with T[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img], Q[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img].
<font color="#CC3333">Hero raises to t7180</font>, BB calls t5420 (All-In).

Flop: (t12650) Q[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img], 7[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img], T[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(2 players, 1 all-in)</font>

Turn: (t12650) J[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(2 players, 1 all-in)</font>

River: (t12650) A[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(2 players, 1 all-in)</font>

Final Pot: t12650

Thanks for such a well thought out response. Go away....People who like rappers are homos.

How could you possibly want a more detailed answer to such a vague question.

And then you went on to insult one of the posters in this forum who consistently gives advice and who is one of the more successful low limit posters on here.

Whatever, go to hell.

Okay first of all, [censored] YOU. Second you go to hell. Now calm down and relax.

Okay does one generally want to take a coinflip ITM?( Where he can eliminate a player.) Or do you want to be in the lead, eg 70/30,60/40?

[/ QUOTE ]
Ok, you seem sincere in your question so I'll give you some advice. Be more specific. This question is still too vague. Post an actual hand that you had to play and be sure to include stack/blind sizes, your cards, and your position. This is the best way to learn on this forum.

Vague question but I'm willing to bet that you are playing WEAK TIGHT when you get into the money. Grow a set of balls and get superaggressive. You might still get alot of 3rd but I bet you'll win alot more.

I think it has something to do with either rappers or homosexuals. [img]/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

Does one not comprehend the meaning of vauge....post a hand give a specific example and stop telling respected posters to Eff off or eff themselevs because you asked a stupid question and procceded to follow it up with another stupid question...my first advice would be to read the page in HOH where they talk about things you need to take into account in a given hand or how about tell us how you would come into this 50/50 situation...stack sizes maybe...if your pooshing or calling the raise, GIVE US SOMETHING...my second piece of advice is walk into oncomming traffic....I'm sorry that was mean

I've heard homosexual rappers do tend to get a lot of thirds.
