Thanks for comments guys, videos a year or so old Lance so my memories a bit shaky on hands.
seaBass, it wasn't specifically a turbo strategy vid, its just that its obviously quicker to make a turbo vid than regular. I think I was grinding $22 and $33 standard SNGs at the time I made it. Bare in mind the strategies are really the same for both, its just that with turbos you move through the first stages quickly and get to P/F a lot soon. In standard speed ones, especially against weak opponents you have much more chance to build a nice stack before you get there.
I havnt played SNGs seriously for a long time now, so I wont be doing anymore vids unfortunately. On the other hand, rumor has it someone even better will be doing some soon.
ICM is really hard to teach in video format, theres just so much involved in it. We can show examples, but not cover it exhaustively. The main point to take away is that you need to learn ICM away from the table. Theres really no secret formula, you just need to analyze a whole lot of scenarios and kind of build up a feel for ranges. SNG Wizard is great for this, but it can be done by hand if you need to. Stickies on here have examples and maths involved.
Something to consider when you're looking at pushing ranges, is your equity if you get called. Like if you shove A5s for 10bbs, then the hands that call you are either better AX hands, or PPs > 5, so you're never even 50% if you get called. Some hands like KQ might slip into their calling range, but not many. So when you get called, you're toast. Same with small PPs, they look good as a 'made hand', but when called you're either crushed by better PPs, or at best flipping against overcards. As you get shorter a flip isnt so bad, but if you're not desparate, you'd prefer something better, or lots of fold equity.
Lance, cant really remember that A9o hand, maybe I had some kind of read, or maybe it was bad.
HU, in both these cases the guy was giving away free money. If he's doing something 100% (which he was), then playing standardly becomes sub-optimal to exploiting that obvious leak. Higher risk, for higher reward. Why would you possibly lead out those hands when his call/raise range when you lead, is identical to his calling range when you c/r, but you know if you check you 100% get extra chips from his very large bluffing range when checked to?
