Increasing Your Return on Investment with Sit & Go Tournaments

Sit and Go tournaments are becoming more and more popular, and now with the 'super turbo' sit and go tournaments, players who are normally impatient have found their niche. The turbo sit and go tournaments take about half an hour to play, so they are very fast-paced and they are a whole lot of fun. Here are a few tips for increasing your return on investment with sit and go tournaments.

Playing Tighter

One of the most successful strategies with sit and go tournaments is to play tighter and conserve chips. It is best to play stronger hands more often and then play a little looser when you are in a later position. Conserving your chips gives you the opportunity to really go for it when a strong hand presents itself, especially when the majority of the other players are going to go in headlong.

Premium Hands

When you receive a premium hand from the beginning, you may want to start out slower in order to build false confidence in your opponents. Then, when the pot has grown and you are confident you can take it, come out swinging. This works best if you are playing against someone who feels they have the better hand but you are still fairly confident you are going to win. You could end up taking the player for most of his chips.


Finally, just because sit and go tournaments are faster, it does not mean that you do not need to gain the experience. Just like other tournaments, you will get better the more you play. Take the time to gain your experience so you have a great feel for the game. After a period of time has passed, you will likely feel more relaxed and able to think more clearly.

Sit and go tournaments are really enjoyable and can be even more so if you take these tips into account. As you play more and more, you will develop your own strategies, but most likely, you will continue to utilize these.
