What is the difference between a cash game and a Sit and Go?

The main differences between a cash game and a Sit and Go, is that in a cash game you can leave at any time. You can literally play one hand and be done. At a cash table, you are using the chips from your account to play live, So whatever you win or lose will be reflected in your chip stack on the leaderboard immediately after each hand.

 In a cash game, the blinds are set to a fixed amount and do not raise. However, when you play in a Sit and Go, it is like a mini tournament so you are not out until you run out of chips or place in the top three.

 A Sit and Go, also known as a SAG, has a specific buy in amount that you ante up before you play, and it only holds up to 10 players. If you place in the top three of the Sit and Go, your chip earnings will be reflected in your chip account after you are finished with the SAG.

.What starting hands should I be playing?


Hands that you should always play are AA, KK QQ, Ace King, Ace queen. Those are some of the best starting hands you can have. However, as you learn the game more, you might find there are other hands that you like to play as well.

 When first starting out, a good rule of thumb for how to decide what to [play or not is to think of the cards in your hand like black jack. And if it equals 19 or better in blackjack, its usually a good starting hand for poker as well.


How much should I be betting pre flop?


A good pre flop raise is 2.5 to 3 times the amount of the big blind. So if the blinds are at 200


?then you want to raise anywhere from 500 to 600 pre flop.



Is poker a game of luck or skill?


It's actually both. You do not have control over the cards you are dealt, but you have complete control over the way you play them. Even though poker is a game of chance, there is a very real element of skill, which can be exploited and used to allow you to win money from the other players at the table.

If you can play your hands better than your opponent can play their hands, you will be winning money from them over the long run. This is how professional poker players make a living.


Should I play cash games or Sit and Go’s?


You should play what you like. If you like cash game structure, play cash, if you like the tournament structure, play Sit and Go’s. Both games are enjoyable. In the beginning, the sit and go structure might be an easier style for a new player, but as you learn the game, the cash table is where there is a lot of potential to make limitless chips.


How important is table position?

Table position is really, really important, yet many new players to the game do not take enough notice of it. If you are one of the last to act in a hand, you have a big advantage over the other players at the table, whereas if you are one of the first to act you are at a disadvantage.
