Hello mobsters, this is your blogger westside1950 writing (dknight217 on Pokerstars), I hope you all had good and successful week. I wrote about a week ago about my plan to go and play Spin&Go's on Pokerstars.

I played 25-30 1$ Spin&Go's for a few days and I couldn't get more profit then a lousy 1$ a day. It's really hard, swings are brutal - at one moment you are a huge chip leader and then you lose your stack in 2 hands - and you didn't play anything wrong.

I didn't roll any big jackpots - 6$ was max. and it occurred only 3-4 times. Yes, players are mostly really bad - but that didn't help me a lot. Blinds go up too soon and then it's just push-and-fold poker and a lot of flipping occurs. And I don't like that.

So I guess this is my farewell to serious playing of Spin&Go tourneys, for now. I think I have better edge and profit on these normal speed HU SNGs that i normally play.
I will occasionally play Spin&Go's just for fun, but not more then 2-3 per day.

''Accept rematch?''

So I went back to playing normal speed HU SNGs. I don't know if you ever tried to play this kind of poker, so I guess I should do a little introduction.
Normal speed HU SNGs aren't as exciting as Spin&Gos, or as popular as cash games or tournaments. When I started with poker I played cash games, but ultimately I found myself in these games.

It's the kind of poker that requires enormous amount of patience along with poker skill (and a little bit of luck,of course). When you learn that, you'll be surprised how much money you can make just by being patient and just waiting for your opponent to overplay his cards.
You start the game with 75 BBs ( and with levels lasting 7minutes) which is more then enough to find spots to extract chips from your (bad) opponent.
In these games you learn to value-bet your 4th pairs and fold your sets. ( At least, it is where I learned that Big Smile )

I like this type of game, not just because of all of that above, but because you play the whole game against one opponent. You need to get into his head and try to understand his thinking process in order to beat him.

But the real beauty of this game format makes one small option that pop-ups at the end of the game and asks you if you want a rematch.

I've won a whole bunch of dollars thanks to my stubborn opponents who won't accept defeat and think they can do better. (but in fact they start tilting around and start playing worse and worse)
Most of the recreational players tend to take defeats and the game itself too personally (when they play these heads-up games) and simply can not leave once they lost the first game.

And in the end they find themselves losing 10-20-30 €/$ and spewing a huge part of their bankroll.
Their pride messes with their head. I also fell into that trap a few times accepting rematches with good or better players wanting to prove something.

And in the end you realize that the point isn't about proving you're better then someone.
It's only about the money, the profit. Why play against someone good while you can play against a lot of bad players, at that same time?

Don't forget that if you ever play this format.

Good luck to all of you Blink

I agree with the rematch theory because i have fallen for this many times over the years when i should have just left the table and moved on but my pride wouldnt allow me and its ended up costing me

Sometimes i will accept rematch as my ego is big as the other kid just played me out and i want to get back at him and will try to better him but most of the time i end up losing money and him winning several more before me giving up saying he is good , anyway good luck if you rematch better be the one to initiate it rather than the one to accept it, anyway good luck again and have fun playing sng heads up cheers guys!

I agree with your statement..."why play someone good when other bad players are available".I know I am not the best poker player so if someone out classes me at the table I will accept it and move on to greener pastures.
I would think HU SNGs can get very mentally challenging if you keep losing,especially if you think that he is not even that good at poker.

Hi mates.
The thing here is maybe, clear your head and get out of tilt, just because you lose a head-up game, why play again against the same player, when you can go futher and defeat other player, and learn how to play diferent, against diferent players with diferent strategies.
Yes i agree that many players accept play again against the same oponnent, for pride, because win and think that can do again, or just for the play, to earn fpps or make roi, i dont know, but every one is a diferent player and have diferent strategies, and that is much better to work your on game.

Hi, i stopped playing these spins after i got a nice promo from Stars. At first, i entered with $30 and i started playing the $3 buy-in Spins, but when i got to $10 without winning a single SnG, i decided to move on to the $1 buy-in. There i managed quite well, although realizing everything you tell on your post. Loosing with great hands without doing anything wrong. I also realized i only won on the lower prizes. The rare times when the prize was $4 or $6, i ended up loosing a run that would compromise the rest of the game. After that, i got a promo and i doubled the bonus cash, which means i was able to recover what i have lost playing the $3 buy-ins.

The most mentally challenging format of poker, definitly. You play every hand and have to be 100% all the time. Few times my concentration went down and I found myself at 500 chips with making a bunch of stupid calls. So yes, it can be pretty damn hard Disagree

You adjust with time Smile

Accepting rematch? I think you must first know if you are better than your opponents before doing as otherwise you will only and only lose your cash but I usually never rematch if I'm beaten or won by huge luck after having being outplayed...

If you don't accept rematch how sure you will be that you really was outplayed? One game is not that big of a sample.
