336 PostsI am really looking forward to the rest of this series. Have you ever played against n0bigdeal? He is next level IMO and has the highest ROI to prove it (something like 22% before rakeback at 18-mans). He plays differently then most other players. The other question is how do you play 15+ tables at a time if you are playing post-flop ect ect? I can understand dropping the tables to play a more aggressive thinking strategy, but that might be less profit over-all. 12% roi over 20 games is more then 17% roi over 10 games right? Btw 12% roi is huge, I want to know how you even got that haha. 17% is very very good though, is that including rakeback? I pretty much only played 18-mans as well, its possible we budded heads a few times if you played $15 games before black friday on stars.
Hey Jimbo, so just to answer a few of your questions, yes I have played against n0bigdeal. He is definitely one of the more solid 18 man players. In regards to how I play 15+ tables with this more aggressive style, I must say, initially it is a bit difficult. I was used to 16 tabling with no trouble, but when I adapted my game, I definitely had to drop tables initially. I dropped down to 8-10 tables. As I got more comfortable, I gradually started to add tables back in and was back to playing 16 tables. So, for the players who will look to include some of these strategies that I will discuss in the upcoming videos, I definitely suggest dropping tables as well to get a feel for the different plays. Please let me know what you think about the upcoming videos and I am happy to answer any questions that you may have.

1 PostsThe conclusion of these videos are totally inline with a proper counter strategy against 95% of Regs and loose players. It is a new way of adapting to todays changes on SNG and MTT. I HOPE NO ONE watches these videos, so I can exploite them longer. : )

Hi Clint, Holdem manager doesnt seem to work on mac. Is there another SNG wizard that you recommend?
Happy New Years guys. Maxii, in regards to your question about HEM 2, it is a bit different, but concept still the same. Here is the breakdown I would use:
1BB to 3BB: 1-5 max
4BB to 6BB: 1-5 max
7BB to 9BB: 1-11 max
10BB to 12BB: 1-11 max
From 13BB+: 1-81 max
LeMoneur, in regards to SNG Wizard, there seem to be a lot of ICM calculators these days, but admittedly, I am not as familiar with all of them or know their pros/cons. I know many people like holdemresources.net for Nash and ICM calculations. There is also a free program call Sit n Go End Game Tools (SNGEGT). If you go to Google and search SNGEGT, the first link for Google Open Source development will provide you with a zip file to download. It provides basic ICM calculator functions for push/call scenarios. It does not do cEV calculations, or any scenarios involving just a normal raise, but may get the job done even with its limited features. Some other programs that I know people talk about are SNG Solver and ICMizer. Also, another program that I use which offers a lot of unique features is Cardrunners EV. I have used it in several of my videos. It does basic ICM calculations in addition to some many other advanced tools. CR EV costs $99 though. Hopefully that helps and at least points you in a few directions.
Also, before watching the rest of the series, i am now wondering whether SNGs are the way for me to go or not. i can afford playing higher stakes than 15/30$ and i don't have the time to grind at tables. Historically, i try to play the sunday tourneys and try to score big dedicating one night a week. Would this ever work?
Thanks for the tips on the wizards, i'll do the search accordingly. Happy New Year to you too
