Sit and go’s consist of 10 players, 9 players, or 6 players. The most common game will consists of 9 players. When you are playing 9 player poker tournament sit and go’s the top 3 players will always make it into the money. The pay for a 9 player sit and go is as follows:

Most players in 9 seat sit and go’s will play tight throughout until there is 3 players left. Their object is to only make 3rd place. Honestly, who cares about 3rd place, you double your money but you waste your time of playing . If you play more aggressive then the other players especially when it is down to just 4 players in a 9 seater, you will increase your chances of making first place. It is extremely important to play aggressive when it is down to just 4 players, trust me if you keep track of your profits you will see a great increase.
Now let’s briefly discuss 6 seater sit and go’s also know as short-handed sit and go’s. 6 seater sit and go’s are not really worth the money when you play them. Only the best players in the world can profit 6 seater sit and go’s and I have been profiting well over $1,000 every single day, all throughout the sit and go’s I have played. Short-handed sit and go’s are not really worth the risk when you play them. When they are down to just 4 players, the game will be all over the place, really it will be at the money tables. It is when the field gets down to 4 players that the game is usually all over the place, really it will be at the money tables. Now again, I will explain why I play 6 seater sit and go’s in this article.
First of all if you are in a 6 seater sit and go position, you should have a strategy. You need to have a sit and go strategy, and you need to stick to it. When you go all in, you need to have a plan for after the flop. You should have a plan of exit strategies. It is vital to have a plan when you are playing in a short handed game. Most people who play short handed games have no plan for after the flop. They go all in when they have nothing and are outdrawn. The biggest mistake people make short handed game is they go all in when they have nothing. They call and the hand is over. Not to mention the fact that you can not bluff or pull a lot of raises out of people when you are playing short handed.
First off if you are in a 9 seater, or bigger, and you don’t have a solid short handed strategy, you are making a big mistake. In a 9 seater you need to have confidence in your hands. You can’t play flip cup holders, but the next hand you should be raising and hoping for a little bit of a flop. Sure, you may not get it, but if you have a solid hand, you will still end up getting some action. Secondly, in a 6 seater you can play a little better, but you still need to have a pretty solid hand if you are going to play a short handed game. The safer way to play a short handed poker game is to only play very good hands. You are not going to risk your chips without a solid hand. The amount of hands that you can play with a solid hand are about the same amount as what you would play playing a 9 seater.
