Heaps of players slow play on the SB with AA or KK when everybody folded before. If you go All-in on your BB trying to steal their money, you'll get busted more than once, and then you'll understand how bad this move is...

Hmmm imo not a bad move, only do it when i am short or semi-short. But thanks for advice froggy
I think slowplay from the SB with KK/AA is a bad move imo.

You are not doing a coinflip if opponent folds, but if he calls and your chances of winning are equal.
I try to avoid coinflip cause I think im better than the average player at my level so I try to find spots where im ahead to get my money in.
Didnt see this sry
Yes again ur right Wot i was tryin to say is this:
When blinds gettin higher at SNG many people are scared and wanting only to play cards like AA, KK, not even AK or QQ. On PKR i have many notes on players at bubble time who playes like this. If position and i am big i put them on half their stack or littl more (so they know next move is allin). If position and short i go allin with any 2 (basicly how you learn to play a SNG when ur short). I meant players are not willing to take the coinflip (so ur right its not coinflipping).

I will take the 'coinflip' against any player in a SnG. People that are afraid of losing, means that those people most of the time don't have alot of money on their accounts. Wich means, for me, I would push around with any face card, or low pair. Take your chances instead of being a p***y
But the term coinflip is not appropriate in this matter. Because U are talking about a strategic matter. And doomdy, I would agree with U.
Also if U play with 10 or 6 people in a SNG, and there are 4 or 3 people left right before the bubble ( 4-10, and 3-6) I always think like this :
52 cards in the deck 10 players left : live cards : less outs (10*2 = 20 cards gone preflop) 52 cards in the deck 4 players left : My outs going up alot ('*2 = 8 cards gone preflop)
Same goes for 6 players Chances U hit a pair or a draw with only fe. 8 cards gone, are much bigger then a full ring. Wich means, u are not really coinflipping, because your cards are having more outs and have more chance to survive with lesser players.
My hand range goes up with 50%. I would play and raise any suited cards, high pairs, low pairs, Ace rag, etc etc.
Chances u are running into a big pair are small. (1/1500 your oppenent gets dealt aces or Kings)

Posted by doomdy: Coinflipping, some hate it, some luv it. I play sng, and in early stage i hate it, i dont want a coinflip. I late stage i luv it, great way to get oponent out of the hand, they want to get ITM. Great way to steal, most people dont want a coinflip at the bubble.
Good move (in my opinion) is when they attack ur BB not with a raise but they call from SB (everybody folds only SB calls ur BB). If you go allin at that time 95% SB folds, great move when blinds are high
Give ur opinion about coinflipping, you luv it? hate it? luv &hate it?
ill love it even more now when i come over to PKR and play you ..... all in my ass will you ...hahaha Look out doomdy dont give away all you tic tacs//

yes, and you have to win TONS of coinlip situations in tournaments... usually you have to coinflip couple times even before money places starts, and after that... its coinflip after coinflip unless you are in very good position
