Turbo Sit and Go

The action generally slows down at this stage and the players will begin waiting a bit for a big hand. The low stack will usually remain the loose action to steal the blinds and it won’t be long before another player is eliminated. Generally it will take about another 15 minutes for the field of players to be down to four which means you’re getting close to the money.

This is when the PokerStars.com action really begins to tighten up due to the fact the top three players win money. The third and fourth place players won’t want to go all-in because they’d be risking losing without winning any money. I suggest playing tight in this situation unless you’re in the low stack. If you’re the low stack then you need to be fairly aggressive because you’ll need to either steal some blinds or double up to stand a chance in the tournament.

Once you’re in the top three you’ve won money no matter what happens and you’ve done part of your job. Your first job is to finish in third place minimum which you’ve accomplished and now you just need to try and win first place. Continue playing the way you’ve been playing and put pressure on your opponents. Most players won’t want to face an all-in with three players left either because the difference in payout from second to third is decent.
