    Default Sit and Go advice

    Hello everyone, Ive been playing poker now for a few months and I'm obsessed with i really love it and I'm starting to get good, I win a fair amount or make the final table most of the time. I mainly play sit and go 3.50,7, and 15 $ 6-45 players

    When I'm running good, there is just so many people going all in pre flop like all the time and i just don't know how to handle because i don't want to risk chips but then then the blinds eat me up. and when i do go all in ace 3 will take out my ace king. Like my last game I just played was a 15$ sit and go 45 players, this is the game that made me come on this forum and seek some advice lol. I was chip leader pretty much all the way threw then the last 18 players literally there was like 5 times there was post flop action. it was just all all in. I love shoving but when its every time it takes the skill out of the game. and I'm talking about when I'm risking like 3/4 of my stack. I really love poker but how can even the most skilled players tackle this ? because its just a flip.

    any advice ?

    Study Expected Value (EV) and Independent Chip Modeling (ICM). Combining these two concepts accurately will help you determine what your call range is supposed to be against late SNG shoves.

    Basically, your goal is to make profitable decisions. The more profitable decisions you make in combination with the errors your opponents make will make you money.

    Examining a made up scenario. You are in the BB with 10 BBs and the button shoves on you. Let's estimate your ICM factor to be 1.7:1. this means the chips you risk are worth 70% more in value than the chips you will win, due to ICM.

    You have to call 9 BBs to win 11.5 BBs. Your pot odds are 1.27:1. Now that we have the two numbers, we can figure out the equity we need to make a call. 1.7/2.97 = 57.2% equity required to call. (1.7 + 1.27 = 2.97).

    Assume the button is shoving 39%. Use this chart here as the hands he is supposed to shove:

    Our call range should be:

    88+ and AT+.

    Where early in the tournament when our ICM is lower we would call with:

    33+, Axs, A5+, K9s+, KT, and QTs.

    High ICM pressure substantially tightens up our call range, but you need to understand the math then study the math by running shove ranges and call ranges through this program:
