Make the Most of an Exciting Sit & Go Offering at Juicy Stakes Poker
Your writer still remembers when, very new to the delights of real money online poker a couple of decades ago, I won my first ever Sit & Go … it didn’t matter at the time that the prize was just a few dollars, rather it was a milestone of sorts. In those days everything in the then essentially fledgling industry seemed new, whether it was Texas Hold'em cash games (Limit Poker was a big thing back then!), bog standard Sit & Go fare or online poker tournaments that new players were getting the hang of, to most it was all a novel experience.
How things have changed! These very same games and formats still form the foundations of the online poker environment we enjoy today, but there are many more variations to the theme(s), and it’s almost like the game has an extra dimension to it.
The Sit & Go offering at Juicy Stakes Poker is typical of how the modern-day poker fan has so much more choice compared with the old days. For those of you who have thus far played only cash games, or who have just started playing tournaments, the Sit & Go format can be a strange animal. The single table set-up means that you’re typically up against a similar number of opponents as is the case in a cash game, but in a tournament context, with the name of the game being to finish in the top two placings, for example. And, at the same time, it’s not wholly a tournament setting, per se, but more like a final table. Indeed, it’s this characteristic that leads experts to recommend Sit & Go games as a training tool for tournament players wishing to hone their ‘endgame’ skills - having an exclusively Sit & Go session, for instance, is a great way to acquaint ourselves with the dynamics of the business end of tournaments. (It also helps to get used to the idea of being knocked out of tournaments, which is an occupational hazard for us all!)
It’s a nice sign of the times that Juicy Stakes Poker has an array of Sit & Go formats to explore, with something for everyone. There’s the usual standard variant for the traditionalists among us, but the more adventurous might wish to give this upwardly mobile poker room’s newly added Bounty Sit & Go games a try, or the Hyper Challenge tournaments.
Meanwhile, a potentially useful by-product of becoming a strong Sit & Go player is being able to put your edge to good use in the Sit & Go qualifiers for the weekly $10,000 GTD Sunday Sundowner fixture.
Good luck at Juicy Stakes Poker’s Sit & Go tables, and have fun!
