Online Poker Tournament Strategy – Planet Mark’s Introduction To Sit And Go Planet

Sit N Go Planet has the information you need to find the softest games, and then to beat them.

Online poker has turned a corner in 2016 - the poker sites have realized that recreational and amateur players are key to future growth – and are pivoting away from their old focus on multi-tabling ‘grinders’. Poker is becoming more entertaining, more rewarding for regular players and (thanks to restrictions on tools and reward systems) a more level playing field for those who are new to the games.

Strategy and advice here is aimed at two types of player – those who are new to the game, and those who have some experience and would like to improve their understanding (and win-rates!).

While there is a lot of information on Sit N Goes and tournaments, a lot of the information here applies across all poker formats.

In 2016, I still believe that Sit N Goes, and in particular the 1-table tournament versions of those games, are great for building a poker bankroll. The vast majority of players will move on from these games sooner rather than later. Hopefully this will be with a bankroll big enough to try other formats, and with a new found understanding of how to adjust your poker play to different situations and opponents.

A great starting point is my course – the Sit N Go Blueprint – which has already helped 1000’s of players get their start at the online poker tables.

Below you will see some of the most popular poker guides and strategy articles from around the site. These are grouped into several types. There are now more than 2500 pages here, in 8 languages – so if you can’t find what you need from the list below, I recommend the search function on the top right.

Good Luck at the Tables – Planet Mark

Details Of How The Site Is Organized

Sit N Go Strategy: From 1 table tournaments up to 90 Players, Sit and Goes are defined as tournaments with no fixed starting time, they simply start when there are enough players enrolled. While the main focus is on 1-table games, a whole lot more is covered here from beginners through to some advanced math. You will find info and strategy advice on Double or Nothing, Knockout, 6-max, heads-up, Fifty50, Steps, Super-Turbos and more in this section of the site, as well as unique SNG centered reviews and comparisons of the different poker sites

Online Poker Tournaments: This section picks up where the last left off, covering multi-table tournaments from the smallest buy-ins through to the 'Sunday Majors', the biggest weekly games of all. Tournament strategy gets complex, and I have it all covered here from the building blocks through to advanced moves. Many MTT variations are covered, including knockouts, rebuys, turbo tournaments and more.

Poker Satellites: Every poker site now offers qualifier games to both their own online events and live tournaments like the World Series, European Poker Tour or Aussie Millions. These have strategy considerations all of their own, which my articles explain. This section also covers the growing number of online poker events and qualification to those big online poker tournaments. Great for those readers with smaller bankrolls who want to take a shot at the big money!

Poker Sites Section: I have read the same old reviews of poker sites over and over again, and have created something different with the poker sites section here. Instead of just a list of facts, you will get my opinions on what works, what does not and where to find the easiest games. You will find comparisons on specific subjects and advice on which bonuses are easy to clear and which ones are impossible. I stick to the biggest and best known sites here, for security and for a bigger choice of games. You will find some exclusive reader offers here including SNG tokens, cash boosts with your first deposit and more.

Poker Tools Section: Whether you like it or not, many of your opponents are using poker software tools to help their game. Many of these are approved by the big sites, and give you a considerable winning edge at the tables. Find out more on the most popular approved tools in this section. You will also find information about the unique tools and widgets offer to readers right here on this site.

Mark's Blog: My poker blog has been going several years and now has 100's of articles of its own. Here I bring news and views from the tables, and also updates on this site - I also highlight the occasional promotion or special offer which fits with the material already on the site.

Real Money Casinos: This section of SNG Planet delves into the entertaining world of real money online casinos. You’ll find sections on slots, table games, live dealer casinos and practical information including reviews, deposit methods and comparisons.

High Tech Gambling: Poker and gambling in general is moving forward, mobiles are the future of the internet, and there have been some amazing developments already. This link is to a completely separate site 'High Tech Gambling' which is dedicated to the future of online casino, poker and sports-betting. This site has been specially adapted to look great on smartphones!
