Six-player sit and gos are ridonkulous

Earlier this morning, I signed up for a six-person sit and go on my laptop. When I finished what I was doing on my desktop computer (and before the SNG kicked off), I logged off my laptop and opened the poker site on my desktop. When I did, I couldn't find the SNG tournament. I figured when I logged out, it withdrew me.

About 45 minutes later, a window popped up telling me I had finished 3rd. I beat half the field and didn't play a hand. Honestly folks, I couldn't make this stuff up. Has anything like this ever happened to you?


  1. Often when playing those Turbo Double or Nothing Sit and Gos at Stars that I have written about, there will be a sitter. Sometimes the make the money. I figure it is a strategy some employ, although I don't know if it is profitable.

  2. Because this was a 6-person SNG, I bubbled. However, one other time this happened to me. I was in a 9-person $5 SNG and had built up some chip$. Some friends showed up at my place, I got involved with them, and I didn't play anymore, but held on for third (which paid a little bit).

  3. I'm extremely impressed with your writing skills and also with the layout on your blog. Is this a paid theme or did you customize it yourself? Either way keep up the nice quality writing, it's rare to see
    a grеat blog like this one these days.
