Learn How to Play Sit N Gos at Bodog Poker

Share this
Have you read about Sit n Go tournaments but are not quite sure what they are and how to play them? Then pay attention because here is a brief tutorial that will have you playing and winning at the Sit n Go tables at Bodog Poker in no time!
What is a Sit n Go?

Sit and Gos are single table tournaments that start as soon as the table is full. That means there is no set start time for the tournament, instead it starts as soon as the required number of players are registered to play. For example if you enter a 36 player Sit n Go (SnG) on Bodog Poker, the tournament starts as soon as 36 players have entered to play. Then all you need to do is play to win!

What is the Buy-in?
All players in a Sit n Go buy in for the same amount of money and start with the same number of chips. The starting chip amount varies from tournament to tournament but is displayed in the tournament details when you register. Like in other tournaments, the blinds gradually go up in "levels" meaning the blinds increase until the tournament is over.

How long does it take to play a Sit n Go?
Sit n Gos are ‘elimination’ tournaments, so when there is only one player left, the tournament is over.  For example, a one table Sit n Go will usually take between 30 and 60 minutes to complete. If you have less time to play, check-out Bodog Pokers wide variety of short-handed 6 player and Turbo versions where the blinds increase faster as these tournament take less time to complete. The fastest Sit and Gos are the No Limit Holdem Heads-Up matches and the tournaments that take the longest are the Multi-Table Sit n Gos.

How many players are there in Sit n Gos?

Bodog Poker offers one of the biggest Sit n Go tournament schedules to be found anywhere. At any time of the day or night, when you go to the Bodog Poker Room, you’ll see everything from Heads-Up games, short-handed six players games, 10-player single table tournaments (STTs) up to MSGs (Multi-Table Sit and Gos) for up to 45 players.

What can I win in a Sit n Go?
What you can win by playing in a Sit n Go is cash! Or if you play in a Sit n Go satellite, you will be playing for a seat in a bigger tournament with bigger prizes. In an STT, it is normally the top three finishers who share the prize pool and the amount of the prize pool depends on the buy-in. Bodog Poker also has beginner Sit n Gos that pay more places than regular Sit n Go tournaments.  All Sit n Gos have payouts that are set before the game and clearly displayed when you buy in.
