Well i'm a cash game player, but decided to play a sng a couple of days ago, first i've played in a long time. I dont think ive played against such a gang of donkeys in ages. It was a 5 seat $20, Although this was a regular sng.

in my experience, the jump between 6 and 11 was very noticable. much more aggressive players at the 11 level.

I dont play turbos but HU SnGs at Stars take a jump going from 50 to 100. Interestingly the $50 games seem to have gotten softer and closer to the $30s. There is way too much late street bluffing and way too little preflop/flop aggression. (Unfortunately yesterday I ran into two big river suckouts, arggghhhh).

I would flat the turn. the board is extremely draw heavy and your QQ doesnt want to build a big pot. Then you can afford to call a reasonable river bet to a fill card or value bet a blank. Pot control with even stacks is more important than marginally charging a draw that might not even be there.

If you like I'll cross post this hand in the strat forum. But I really see no other way to play this. A draw should never be in his range here based on how strongly I've played my hand. I was really putting him on a good 9. Flatting his ultra weak lead (15 into ~285) seems terrible. I know I have the best hand so I'm betting it hard.

I dont play the turbos, but I play the 11 dollar HU's on stars. The play is so terrible that I wanted to jump to the $20's, but I just reeled off 23 straight wins--the sickest run of my life--so I can't make the jump until I lose, lol. It's just sad how so many people in essence just transfer money in these things.
